Humane Slaughter Association to address animal welfare at slaughter

The Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) is holding a one-day seminar for the meat and livestock industry on Wednesday 9 October 2019 entitled Animal Welfare at Slaughter – Hot Topics 2019.

The seminar will address a range of current issues which have the potential to impact on animal welfare, including the implementation of CCTV, research into transferring LAPS technology into pigs, “demonstration of life” framework for halal certification and slaughter guidance for seasonal poultry producers.

The seminar is aimed at all those associated with animal welfare at slaughter, eg animal welfare officers, veterinary surgeons, meat inspectors, food business operators, slaughter personnel, lairage workers, enforcement officers and legislators.

Speakers from the legislature, industry, enforcement, research, certification and training bodies will inform the assembly of their experiences in the chosen areas. The presentations will be followed by a discussion, during which delegates will be encouraged to share their views on the topics presented, in addition to questioning the speakers.

The HSA Seminar will be held in the Donington Suite at the Jurys Inn, East Midlands Airport, Castle Donington DE74 2SH. The day will start at 09.00 for registration and refreshments and will end at 16.30. There will be an hour break for a hot lunch around 12.30. Registration costs £95 per delegate, including refreshments and lunch. Further information, including speakers and booking, can be found here.
