The Allen D. Leman Swine Conference is an annual educational event for the global swine industry. Each year hundreds of participants from over 20 ..
countries, including swine veterinarians and other professionals working in swine production and animal health management, attend the Leman Swine Conference. This conference for Minnesota practitioners began in a small lecture hall on the Saint Paul Campus and has evolved into the multisession, international meeting it is today. Throughout his career, Al worked to define the link between swine disease and swine production. His unwavering dedication to the education of practicing veterinarians was manifested, at least in part, through his leadership of this conference. Al left the University of Minnesota in 1986. The swine faculty continues to provide the leadership in developing this program and remains committed to Al’s vision of excellence.
