Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of International Buffalo Federation, I cordially invite you to the 12th World Buffalo Congress, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey during 18-20 September 2019. The congress is expected to provide a bridge between East and West; South and North that addresses key issues relevant to buffalo production, the research and science communities, national and international regulatory bodies, policymakers and consumer organizations.
The theme of WBC2019 is “Efficient Production for the World”. We believe that global warming, environmental and ecological degradation, depletion of natural resources, natural and manufactured hazards, and economic crises affect our modes of production, and consumption, demanding for new strategies in production systems and organizations and conduct.
The location has been chosen to reflect the role of Istanbul as a meeting point for East &West and South&North as the crossroads of different continents and cultures. You will also have the opportunity to visit many historical sites in Istanbul and Turkey. In addition to the main congress, there will be the Pre-Congress Workshop on “Reproductive Biotechnology in Buffalo” during 16-17 September 2019.
In the spirit of traditional Turkish hospitality, I welcome you all to Istanbul, and wish you a fruitful meeting, and a pleasant stay.
On behalf of the organizing committee,
Prof. Dr. M. İhsan SOYSAL
Organizing Committee Chair
