Past conferences have had participation of state and provincial veterinarians, federal government veterinarians, animal health representatives, industry representatives, legislators and elected officials from both Canada and the United States.

This two day conference provides delegates with the opportunity to enhance cross border cooperation on animal health issues. Specific Cross Border Livestock Health Conference objectives are:

  • Enhance relationships and build networks between US state and Canadian provincial jurisdictions
  • Exchange information on animal health issues/concerns
  • Develop a common understanding of disease policies
  • Exchange information on emergency response to emerging and foreign animal disease
  • Advance Canadian and American animal health interests
  • Identify and execute action items to collectively address animal health and cross border issues

Conference Action Items will be presented to the PNWER Executive Board, which is comprised of state and provincial legislators from around the PNWER region. These action items will also be presented to federal leadership in Washington DC and Ottawa to further advance regional animal health concerns. PNWER will also collaborate with the CBLHC Action Item Teams to identify how the organization and Legislators can advocate on behalf of the group.

Join us in Spokane to collaborate with your colleagues on the key livestock health issues facing the region.  The Cross Border Livestock Health Conference will be held in conjunction with the The Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) Annual Summit. PNWER invites you to join more than 600 key business leaders, legislators, and government leaders from PNWER’s ten states, provinces, and territories to address the major policy issues impacting the region.Click here to register
