Cornell Nutrition Conference

82nd Annual Cornell Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers

Now Virtual!

October 19 - 22, 2020
10:00AM - 2:00PM EDT Daily via Zoom

For 82 years, the Cornell Nutrition Conference has provided industry leading research and information across the spectrum of animal nutrition to feed industry professionals and nutritional consultants.

Status Update

Due to the ongoing uncertainty related to the Coronavirus pandemic and anticipated strict limitations on an in-person experience, this year's conference will be offered as a 100% virtual event. While it is hard to imagine not gathering in Syracuse this year, we feel this will provide the best experience while ensuring the safety for our attendees, our speakers, and our sponsors. 

We are excited to offer this event virtually on October 19 – 22 from 10:00AM – 2:00PM EDT daily via Zoom.  A robust agenda of industry leading research and information across the spectrum of animal nutrition will be presented by industry-leading academics and researchers.  Join nearly 500 nutrition consultants, feed manufacturers, sales professionals, and university professionals at this premier industry event!

Future Event Sponsorship opportunities are available for the 2022 conference and beyond.


Online registration is open!  The registration fee includes access to the live virtual event on day(s) selected, access to the conference app and electronic materials.  Sessions will be recorded and accessible to all registered attendees.
