New Research from UBC's Animal Welfare Program

Join Dr. Dan Weary and Dr. Nina Von Keyserlingk as they describe the results of recent UBC studies on important and emerging issues concerning the welfare of dairy cattle. Specifically, work on four main topics will be discussed: 1) Calf and Heifer Rearing; 2) Cow Health and Lameness; 3) Housing Facilities and Management; 4) Painful procedures. For each topic, examples will be shown to illustrate the research techniques used, a number of take-home messages will be available to be applied on farm, and plans will be described for new research on the questions that still remain. 

Presented by: Dr. Dan Weary and Dr. Nina Von Keyserlingk
