The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) is holding the sixth of its popular one-day conferences on Recent advances in animal welfare science

This year, the conference will take place in Newcastle at the Centre for Life on the 28th of June 2018 and features 15 presentations on subjects ranging from the factors driving repeated purchase and recommendation of brachycephalic dog breeds to the effects of weather and the environment on donkey, mule and horse welfare.  There will also be poster sessions featuring over 65 presentations.
