Welcome to the WCGALP 2014 conference homepage

The joint US-Canada organizing committee is proud to welcome you to the 10th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP) being held from 17 – 22 August 2014 at the Westin Bayshore Conference Center situated on the bay in the gorgeous city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

This congress is the premier conference for researchers and professionals involved in genetic improvement of livestock. Delegates from around the world gather every four years to attend the scientific program and network with colleagues. This 10th WGCALP builds from previous successful congresses in Madrid (1974 and 1982), Lincoln (USA, 1986), Edinburgh (UK, 1990), Guelph (Canada, 1994), Armidale (Australia, 1998), Montpellier (France, 2002), Belo Horizonte (Brazil, 2006) and Leipzig (Germany, 2010).

We're planning to share our passion for livestock genetics with more than 1,500 delegates. Check back to this site for more information as the date approaches.

We would be extremely grateful if you could assist us in publicizing the conference. Please click on these links to download a Poster, PowerPoint slide or Flyer.

If you wish, please display these materials in a prominent place in your work place where they can be viewed by colleagues and students who would find this conference of interest. We also would like to encourage you to use the PowerPoint slide during presentations you may be giving over the coming two years. Thank you in advance for your help and support towards making the 10th WGCALP in Vancouver, British Columbia a success.
