The seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 9 at the Sheraton Hotel, 706 John Nolen Drive, Madison. The day will include educational sessions and time for networking.

Speakers will provide tools and techniques for exporting livestock and genetics. Topics will include the importance of building relationships when making sales; coordination and complications of embryo export; understanding export protocols and regulations; and an overview of export logistics.
