Australasian Pig Science Association
The purpose of the Australasian Pig Science Association (Inc.) is to provide a forum for excellence in science related to all aspects of the pig industry. APSA was established in 1987 to bring together people from a range of disciplines with a primary interest in pig science.
The aim was to provide a forum for scientific discussion that would ultimately provide an impetus for further research and ultimately improve overall pig productivity. Since that time APSA has met every two years, and the conference has developed to a point where it has a world-wide reputation for science excellence and as a forum for the exchange of ideas relating to the pig industry. The conference proceedings have gained an international reputation for the quality of the symposia, reviews and short papers with all papers undergoing extensive peer review prior to acceptance.
