ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE DAY

In 2016 we ran our first animal welfare event, jointly hosted with University of Bristol – School of Veterinary Sciences. Held at their Langford Veterinary site, the day was dedicated to the sharing of methods, technology and programmes at the forefront of animal welfare in the food industry.

This annual event now sees experts from the University of Bristol and other credible speakers discussing a range of topical subjects. It offers a great opportunity to showcase a range of collaborative opportunities between industry and academia, with a cross-species agenda.

The event attracts a diverse attendance from the industry such as major retailer agricultural and technical teams, various Winterbotham Darby production partners, individuals from leading animal welfare charities and businesses.

The 2019 topic list (subject to changes) includes:

+ 3D technology used in farms to identify animal welfare issues
+ Farm animal welfare and the public: what do we know?
+ Animal feed – the future
+ Pigs in space: developments of high welfare farrowing systems
+ Halal slaughter
+ Labelling and customers
+ The cost to manage, enrich and improve environments for farm animals. A case study with laying hens
+ African swine fever – a threat but also an opportunity
+ Health status of farm animals using volatile organic compounds and fluid borne markers
+ Assessing pain in pigs, tail-docking and its impact
