15 Veterinary students to present in 2023 AASV poster competition

This year presentations will address the theme, “Built to Last: Celebrating 50 Years of Progress.”
Topics include evaluating market trailer hygiene, deactivating PRRSv in water sources and comparing suckling pig fecal microbiomes.

The American Association of Swine Veterinarians has announced the participants in the annual Veterinary Student Poster Competition, sponsored by United Animal Health. The competition will be held Sunday, March 5, during the 2023 Annual Meeting in Aurora, Colorado. Based upon scores awarded in the judging of abstracts submitted for the AASV Student Seminar, the top 15 poster abstracts have been chosen for judging from those selected for poster presentation at the meeting. The full conference program is online.

A panel of judges will conduct a brief interview with each of the 15 students selected to participate, and will evaluate the students' posters at the meeting. All posters will be available for viewing by the meeting attendees starting at noon on Sunday and continuing through Monday. The results of the poster competition will be announced during the AASV Luncheon on Monday, March 6.
