S-PAC: Searchable Proceedings of Animal Conferences

S-PAC stands for “Searchable Proceedings of Animal Conferences” and is a subscribable, searchable electronic database of proceedings from major animal production conferences held in the U.S. and Canada.

The proceedings in S-PAC put additional resources at your fingertips by connecting you to the information made available at multiple animal conferences. A search engine allows you, as a subscriber, to search all the proceedings in the database for the specific information that you need. The list of proceedings will continue to grow as additional proceedings are posted to the site.

A calendar is also provided to help keep you current on dates and locations for upcoming conferences. The link to conference web pages included in this section, provides additional information about the particular conferences, including registration information on many and details on how to order hard copies of several of the conference proceedings.
