Animal Welfare Student Scholars’ Meeting 2018

Each year UFAW holds a meeting at which the students who were awarded a UFAW animal welfare student scholarship talk about their research. These meetings, are usually held in December and free to attend, are always enjoyable and offer the scholars the opportunity to meet one another and the UFAW staff and to gain valuable experience in presenting their work.

Topics of talks include:

  • Footpad dermatitis in broilers : Insights from infrared thermography?
  • Assessing chronic stress in dogs (Canis familiaris) in South Korea under differing husbandry conditions
  • Scared, depressed or just content? A pilot study on the welfare of captive Pallas’s cats
  • Warm versus cold. How to increase the piglets’ use of the creep area
  • Developing protocols for assessing the behavioural and welfare impacts of commercial dog breeding
  • Are “depression like” responses in mice really depression?
  • Chilled or bored? Inactivity in fattening cattle

  • Talks will last approximately 15 minutes. 10.30am – 4.00 pm.
