13th Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-being, Edinburgh (Scotland), 2021

How do Human-Animal interactions affect Farm Animal Well-being?

Interactions between animals and their human caretakers play a significant role in the overall welfare of both the livestock and their stewards. For people caring for cattle, it is important to understand how their everyday interactions can affect the health, welfare and performance of the animals.

In May 2021, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health will hold the 13th edition of its International Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-Being in Edinburgh, UK. Over the years, this Forum has become a recognised discussion platform which facilitates communication and transfer of knowledge between veterinarians and animal scientists from around the world. The diversity of backgrounds encourages a multidisciplinary exchange of ideas.
