Around the world, over 100 billion animals are transported, marketed and slaughtered annually in order to provide food. Growing meat consumption and an increasingly globalised food supply chain add to the need to develop improvements in animal welfare during transport, marketing and slaughter. These challenges, combined with increased consumer concern, are stimulating new developments and the adoption of higher welfare standards in many parts of the world.
The HSA is holding a second International Symposium, in Zagreb, Croatia, to present and discuss recent scientific and technological advances in this field, and the application and uptake of advances around the world. The event will also be an opportunity to help identify future priorities and to provide a forum for sharing information and experiences.
The deadline for submission of abstracts for oral presentations has now passed, however, we will still consider abstracts from those interested in contributing to the symposium with a poster.
The Symposium will be held at the Hotel Dubrovnik, Zagreb. General information for those registered to attend the HSA International Symposium can be downloaded here: General Information
