Session Highlight: Science as a Tool to Address Animal Welfare

Animal welfare is a topic of critical interest throughout the food chain. In response to questions from curious consumers and pressure campaigns from activist groups, many restaurant, retail and foodservice brands are considering what role they play in the animal welfare dialog and adopting related policies for their supply chains. In a preconference webinar available only to registered Virtual Summit attendees, expert panelists will discuss ways that the animal agriculture industry can help food companies ensure the science of animal welfare isn't lost in navigating conversations where emotions play a larger and larger role.

Tim Kurt, PhD, scientific program director at the Foundation for Food and Agricultural Research, directs science and technology research programs with targeted outcomes that address cross-sector agricultural challenges. His portfolio includes the International Consortium for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Agriculture (ICASA), the Egg-Tech Prize for in ovo gender identification, the SMART Broiler initiative for automated poultry welfare monitoring technologies and the FFAR Veterinary Fellows.
Candace Croney, PhD, director of the Center for Animal Welfare Science at Purdue University, and professor of animal behavior and well-being in the departments of Comparative Pathobiology and Animal Sciences. She currently serves as scientific advisor on animal welfare to numerous groups, including Tyson Foods, fairlife, Bob Evans Farms, Kent Pet Group, and Wayne Farms.
Karen Christensen, PhD, senior director of animal welfare at Tyson Foods, leads a dedicated team who are passionate about welfare, and leads the research at the recently completed Tyson Center for Sustainable Welfare Research, a facility dedicated to broiler welfare.

Dr. Croney will also speak during the Virtual Summit itself, giving a keynote address titled "Can You Hear Me Now? How Agriculture Can Communicate on Animal Welfare." She will offer attendees insights into the latest developments in animal welfare and how to effectively engage in meaningful conversations with consumers and influencers.
