IPVS HISTORY

The specialization of Veterinary Medicine and the current increase in the importance of swine production have demanded the cooperation of Veterinary professionals from all over the world toward the development of know-how on the problems related to raising and reproducing this animal species.

The IPVS – International Pig Veterinary Society – was founded with this objective and with the purpose to promote, every two years, a meeting with professionals from the swine production chain to discuss the studies developed by the international scientific community.

In the last 50 years, this IPVS objective and purpose have been achieved. Since the first congress held in Cambridge/England, in 1969, the scientific and technical community has shown its interest in this international forum, where all the problems related to pig production are presented and debated. Thanks to the dedication and seriousness with which IPVS representatives have treated the issues of this community´s interest, more than 40.000 people have already had the opportunity to participate in IPVS congress, with the presentation of more than 13.000 scientific works. All the past editions of IPVS congresses are cited below.

HISTORICAL DATA

The interest in technical-scientific development is the main motivation for the realization of the IPVS Congress. Many of the debates have led to the development of procedures, which were incorporated in pig production systems to modernize and turn them into an economic and productive activity. At each Congress, a complete review of the new advances is presented in search of more efficient solutions to face pig production challenges.
