The inaugural conference on Sustainable Animal Agriculture for Developing Countries (SAADC2007) was held in 2007 in Kunming, China with a total attendance of about 200 participants. The second SAADC was successfully held in 2009 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (SAADC2009) with total attendance of about 250 participants from 15 different countries. I am pleased to announce that the third conference, SAADC2011, will be held in Suranaree University of Technology, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, a science and technology-oriented university, which aims at researching, adapting, transferring and developing technology for the sustainable development of society.

The primary objective of SAADC is to provide a venue for animal agriculturists (academicians, researchers, administrators and livestock producers), particularly from the developing countries, to share their experiences and develop collaborations to enhance development of sustainable animal industries in their respective countries. We also welcome our colleagues from the developed countries to contribute to the above objective. The emphasis of SAADC2011 will be on issues, challenges and recommendations on how animal agriculture should be developed to meet the challenges developing countries are facing in the modern globalize market. Among the issues to be discussed are:

  • Technologies for sustainable animal agriculture for developing countries
  • Sustainable use of local resources
  • Role of biotechnology in animal agriculture for developing countries
  • Balancing food production and environment in developing countries
  • Sustainable animal production systems

The Conference comprises 3 days of scientific presentations and one day of field trip to small holder farms, commercial farms and other sites of interest. The venue of the conference is Surasummanakhan, a hotel in Suranaree University of Technology.

SAADC2011 is jointly organized by the School of Animal Production Technology, Suranaree University of Technology, Mahanakorn University of technology, Silpakorn University, Udon Thani Rajabhat University, Rajamangala University of technology Isan Sakon Nakorn Campus and Mahasarakham University.
