Commission convenes workshop for veterinary practitioners on animal welfare

The European Commission, in cooperation with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) are organising a workshop on "Improving animal welfare: a practical approach" ,which will take place in the Netherlands on 12-13 September 2013. This workshop will focus on animal welfare for cattle, pigs, wild animals and horses.

The workshops are aimed at veterinary practitioners and will include both theoretical and practical on-farm sessions to provide veterinarians a deeper understanding of animal welfare matters.

This programme was initiated in 2011. Since then five workshops were organised in Hungary, Spain, Latvia, Romania and Italy. Until now 700 veterinarians have been trained, from over 20 European countries.

Registration is free.
