3rd Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-being, Barcelona (Spain), 2010

3rd Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-being

Boehringer Ingelheim held its 3rd International Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-Being in the heart of historical Barcelona. Some 100 participants from 10 different countries and a variety of scientific disciplines attended the meeting, including welfare scientists, behaviourists, veterinarians and representatives from the livestock industry.
The forum’s practical approach and the speakers’ different fields of expertise allowed participants actively to engage on two of the driving forces behind welfare concerns: ethics and economics. The question-and-answer session offered a forum for interactive debate and revealed a potential gap between the opinions of some welfare experts and those of farmers.
