Expert Vivi Aarestrup Moustsen looks back to the recent International Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE). Sometimes, it is important to look beyond the outcome of certain animal welfare research, she says.
I admire science and scientists – and we need science to develop the pig industry. So I spent a week in July in Edinburgh at the 50thInternational Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE). There were many interesting talks and posters where results of the latest science within animal ethology and welfare were presented.
As I see it, pig farmers and their staff, scientists, society, consumers, politicians, and NGOs – all agree that pig welfare is important.
