Ohio State Students at International Production and Processing Expo

Feb. 22, 2015

The Animal Welfare Club and members of the Animal Welfare Judging team had the opportunity to attend the International Production and Processing Expo held in Atlanta, Ga., January 26 - 28, 2015.

Students on the team were able to see setups of enriched colony housing and aviary systems that comply with welfare standards for specific programs and states. In addition to exploring different facilities, the students also met with representatives from Egg Innovations and Vast Technologies to discuss specific hot topics in Poultry welfare. This trip was made possible by the generous funding of the Ohio Poultry Association.

The photos below were taken at the expo. Students attended the expo with Dr. Monique Pairis-Garcia.
