Farm Animal Welfare Symposium Coming to Ohio State

Issues in farm animal welfare continue to be hotly debated across the United States, with many farm animal production practices under scrutiny. On October 16, a symposium on animal welfare at The Ohio State University will offer perspectives that are grounded in science and education.

The "Ohio State Animal Welfare Symposium: Building Partnerships to Address Animal Welfare," will take place Friday, Oct. 16 from 8 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, Columbus, Ohio.

The symposium is organized by Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Animal Sciences in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, which have recently partnered with the Animal Welfare Science Centre of Australia.

The purpose of the symposium is to celebrate the new partnership, while examining issues surrounding animal welfare in Ohio and across the country, highlighting current animal welfare research and encouraging balanced discussions. Continuing education credit is available. See a tentative agenda and registration information.
