Workshop on goat welfare assessment
How can we assess welfare of goats?
University of Milan, Italy
Great opportunity for vet and animal science students in Switzerland and Italy. Dr. Monica Battini and Katrina Rosenberger will hold a workshop at University of Milan in March to train students in the application of QBA to assess stress in goats. The aim is to validate parameters from qualitative assessment of stress with quantitative video data from standardized stress tests such as Open Field and Novel Object Tests.
With funding from UFAW, the organisers will also be able to reimburse successful participants after the workshop.
