International Symposium on Animal Nutrition
This conference is organized every second year by Kaposvár University's Department of Animal Nutrition and invites the most dedicated specialists in the field to share their research, discuss current issues, and share their opinions and predictions for the future.
Conference on Rabbit Production
About 90 participants attend the Conference on Rabbit Production, organized by Kaposvár University in cooperation with the Hungarian Branch of the WRSA, the Rabbit Production Board, and the Agribrands Europe Hungary Inc. This is the largest and most popular gathering of rabbit breeders in Hungary. Scientists young and old and foreign guest speakers present the results of their research in all fields of rabbit production (housing and welfare, reproduction, genetics, nutrition, and pathology).
International Poultry Symposium
Poultry breeding is the second largest animal production sector of the Hungarian national economy. It is a rapidly changing industry, adapting to the latest developments in genetics, using the most advanced technology, and staying on the cutting edge of international research. Because of this, timely presentation of scientific results and research experiences are particularly important. Kaposvár University is internationally renowned for its applied poultry research and the quality of the international symposiums it hosts.
Nine of these symposiums have attracted upwards of 150 registered participants, whose presentations have appeared in "Proceedings" and featured in exhibitions and industrial displays. The prestige of the Tibor Kakukk Award, established in Kaposvár, reflects the very high standard of this biannual symposium.
The importance of this conference to the poultry industry is reflected in the diversity of its attendants. Last year presentations were made in Hungarian, English, German, and French.
