The issues in farm animal welfare continue to be hotly debated across the United States, and recently Ohio's farm animal production practices have come under scrutiny. On October 16, a symposium on animal welfare being held at The Ohio State University will offer perspectives that are grounded in science and education.

The "Ohio State Animal Welfare Symposium: Building Partnerships to Address Animal Welfare," will take place Friday, October 16 from 8 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, Columbus, Ohio.

The symposium is organized by Ohio State's College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Animal Sciences in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, which have recently partnered with the Animal Welfare Science Centre of Australia.

The purpose of the symposium is to celebrate the new partnership, while examining issues surrounding animal welfare in Ohio and across the country, highlighting current animal welfare research and encouraging balanced discussions. Continuing education credit is available.
