EAAP has been delivering programs on animal science for over 70 years. After careful planning, we are this year going to provide some outstanding webinars by inviting top speakers who will introduce subjects related to animal science and livestock industry to scientists and technicians.
The Webinar series is planned to be organized monthly to inform, update, disseminate with high profile speakers the EAAP individual members. Apart from exceptions due to organizational issues, the EAAP Webinars will be held monthly, in the afternoon of the second Tuesday of the month.
The twelfth EAAP Webinar titled Shearing & animal welfare: demanded by consumers, but are we prepared? is organized in collaboration with the EAAP Animal Fibre Working Group. This EAAP working group of international experts work on key issues such as biology, genetic/ genomic, nutrition, fibre assessment technology, quality and physical properties of animal fibres and their processing products, animal husbandry, animal welfare and economic/societal impacts related to Animal fibre and animal tegument production. The aim of the group is to create a network of investigation and organize meetings to facilitate the interchange of information and progress on different themes related to biology and economy of Animal fibre science and animal tegument production, as well to encourage the dissemination of this knowledge.
The first presentation will be given by Christoph Winckler from “University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna” (Austria) on “Animal welfare in extensive production systems – the alpaca case”. Alonso Burgos from “IncaTops” (Peru) will then talk about “Alpaca shearing as a way to sustainability”. Finally, the last talk will be on “Assessing Animal Welfare risk in fibre-producing animals with the use of the 5 Domains model” by Marlene K. Kirchner from “Four Paws” (Austria).
By attending EAAP Webinars, you will be able to stay on top of the latest research and gain new inspiration. Connect and network through a range of interactive presentations, discussions and workshops. Get updates on the latest results and opinions about animal science and the livestock industry. You can use this program also to teach your students.
All registered participants will receive a Zoom link a few days before the webinar. We invite you to check the spam as well. If you need support with your registration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
