Previewing the Symposium of Beef Cattle Welfare Set for Later This Week at K-State


Amid consumers´ growing interest in how their food is produced, Kansas State University´s Beef Cattle Institute will host later this week the 2010 International Symposium on Beef Cattle Welfare May 19-21 on the K-State campus in Manhattan.


"Beef cattle well-being is the foundation to any beef cattle operation," said Dan Thomson, K-State associate professor and director of the Beef Cattle Institute. "Ranchers and farmers strive to provide the best care possible for their animals. Today, 97.4 percent of Americans eat meat. This symposium is an example of how the beef industry and its researchers continue to find new advances in animal well-being for the cattle they raise for beef."


Some of those speakers include Temple Grandin, a Colorado State University professor of animal science who has earned a reputation for not only designing livestock handling systems, but for her in- depth understanding of animal behavior. Joseph Stookey, an applied ethologist and sustainable beef systems research expert from the University of Saskatchewan; Mike Siemens, Leader - Animal Welfare and Husbandry for Cargill Animal Protein; Janice Swanson, director of animal welfare at Michigan State University; Glynn Tonsor, assistant professor of agricultural economics at Michigan State; Ron Gill, professor and extension livestock specialist for Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Tom Noffsinger a cattle handling expert and beef
cattle veterinarian; and others will speak.


We will be covering the Symposium later this week- and we offer a preview of this international event on today's Beef Buzz. Click here for more information about this Symposium.
