The 2018 Beef Industry Safety Summit will be held in Richardson, TX March 6 – 8, 2018. As part of the annual Summit, the presentation of research results plays a key role in filling knowledge gaps and identifying new research needs so safety strategies can be adjusted to incorporate the latest information. Scientists are invited to submit research results from projects that were funded by ALL funding sources, not just The Beef Checkoff. Submitted abstracts will be evaluated by a selection committee and applicants will be notified regarding acceptance by COB January 12th.

The Beef Industry Safety Summit has been established as the premier event that brings industry leaders and safety professionals together from all sectors of the beef production, processing and marketing chain to focus on strategies to improve beef safety. As part of the annual Summit, the presentation of research results plays a key role in filling knowledge gaps and identifying new research needs so safety strategies can be adjusted to incorporate the latest information.

The Beef Safety Research Update Session will occur on Tuesday, March 6th or Wednesday, March 8th. Final agenda timeslots will be communicated once abstracts are selected. Scientists from universities and USDA-ARS are invited to present research results from projects that were funded by ALL funding sources, not just The Beef Checkoff. Progress reports for projects that are ongoing (i.e. USDA-funded multi-year projects) are welcome, even if the work is not complete. All other non-academic research abstract submissions are welcome for sharing in the poster session.
