Walmart has announced their commitment to working with supply chain partners to implement practices consistent with the “Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare”. Animal welfare is a hot topic of discussion across the livestock industries. Dr. Ron Gill has vast expertise and experience related to this issue. Join us Friday, June 5th, at 10 a.m. as we feature Dr. Gill on a nEXT Talk titled, Animal Welfare Standards. Dr. Gill will talk about why animal welfare topics are important and will discuss the role our agency can play in separating fact from fiction. He has written about the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare in the past and will explain why it’s important that we all have a clear understanding of the intent of the Five Freedoms.
