Animal welfare was top of mind at Animal Production 2016 Conference in Adelaide earlier this month, with more than 350 scientists, researchers, students, consultants and producers from across Australia and the world attending the three-day event.
Jointly run by the Australian Society of Animal Production (ASAP) and the New Zealand Society of Animal Production (NZSAP), presenters discussed the most up-to-date research and animal health outcomes from across the globe, with keynote speakers including animal behavioural expert Temple Grandin, United States.
