Innovations in Animal Welfare
The first day of the international WAFL conference, 5th September, will be dedicated to innovations in animal welfare that can be applied on-farm, during transport and at the abattoir. The ideas can vary from fresh, innovative ideas to new housing concepts, new management innovations or intelligent monitoring devices that have been developed recently. All promising innovations will get a stand at the ‘Innovation Market’ at which posters or objects can be presented to the delegates. The best will be invited for a plenary ‘Pitch’ in the morning. We will let the audience discuss & decide which innovation takes animal welfare forward the most!
