The fifth event in the EIT Food “Focus on Farmers” Virtual Farm Walk and Discussion Series will focus on animal health and welfare, and in particular the challenges posed by a changing world.
The two guest speakers for this session are both from Queen’s University Belfast. Prof. Eric Morgan will speak on the topic of parasite control in grazing livestock and the effect drug resistance and climate change will have in the coming years. Dr. Gareth Arnott in contrast will focus on the wider topic of animal welfare, its impact and how it interacts with the ‘One Health’ concept.
Our farmer ambassadors Sam Chesney and James Evans will also speak on the steps they are taking on farm to maintain animal health and welfare standards amidst changing policy and advice.
