Event Description

 Register for the conference

Unite with agriculture and food industry leaders on October 5 and 6, 2011 to learn and share information on new initiatives and future challenges in farmed animal welfare.  This one and a half day conference is hosted by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC), the lead organization for collaborative animal care initiatives in Canada. 

The theme is Advancing Animal Care and Addressing Market Expectations. Speakers from across the food chain will outline the value of a disciplined plan and offer practical solutions for delivering on improved animal care.  Key topics include: the new Codes of Practice process, its progress and benefits; responding to consumer and market realities; and global advancements and roadblocks to real animal welfare improvements. The full agenda is below.

Here is what attendees at NFACC’s last conference had to say: “very objective and comprehensive”, “face to face contacts worth more than price of admission”, “excellent and well organized”, "next time introduce the concept of actually integrating these concepts into the value chain." The 2011 event incorporates and expands on this feedback.

The conference will be held in Ottawa at the Hilton Garden Inn, Airport. Conference location and accomodations.

The National Farm Animal Care Conference will provide you the opportunity to:

  • build relationships and share information with groups that have diverse interests in animal welfare
  • stay current of new initiatives and be prepared for future challenges
  • enhance awareness of the complexities in addressing animal welfare.
