Animal Health and Welfare | Science Day | 9th Annual GASL MSP Meeting


TEST TEST
PLEASE STAND BY. PLEASE STAND BY.>>WELCOME BACK.
I KNOW SOME PEOPLE ARE STILL VISITING IN THE HALLWAY.
WHICH IS THE BEST PART. [NO AUDIO] WE ARE BEGIN THIS AFTERNOON
FIRST PLENARY SESSION. THAT IS ON TOPIC OF ANIMAL
HEALTH AND WELFARE. I INVITE MARGHERITA TO COME UP
AND BEGIN THE SESSION.>>GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE.
WELCOME BACK. I’M MARGHERITA GOMARASCA I’M THE
COORDINATOR OF THE INTERNATIONAL INTERNATIONAL. I WILL BE MODERATOR ON ANIMAL
HEALTH AND ANIMAL WELFARE. THE DEPARTMENT WILL BE ORGANIZE
ED AS THE PREVIOUS ONE.
WE’LL HAVE FIRST AN OVERVIEW OF THE TOPIC TAKEN FROM THE PAPER
THAT WAS PREPAREED IN ADVANCE. WE’LL HAVE A RESPONDENTS AND
OTHER PRESENTERS THAT WILL PROVIDE SOME EXPERIENCE OF
INNOVATION, ACTIONS. BEFORE THIS, LIKE TO INVITE THE
SPONSOR OF THIS SESSION. MR. LLOYD DAY.
WHO IS WORKING AT INTERIM INSTITUTE FOR CORPORATION AND
AGRICULTURE. WELCOME. // THANK YOU MARGHERITA.
GOOD AFTERNOON. IT’S A PLEASURE TO BE HERE AT
KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY FOR THE FIRST TIME AS A SON OF OF
TEACHER AND THE GRANDSON OF THE MAYOR OF FLORENCE, KANSAS, DOES
ANYONE KNOW WHERE FLORENCE, KANSAS IS?
THERE’S A COUPLE. IT’S ONLY ABOUT A FIVE HOUR AWAY
FROM HERE. IT’S A SMALL LITTLE TOWN THAT
USEED TO BE IN IN THE CENTER OF BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH, EAST
AND WEST. IT’S NICE TO BE BACK WHERE I
HAVE SOME ROOTS. IT’S NICE TO BE BACK WHAT THEY
CALL THE LITTLE APPLE. I’M SURPRISEED THEY HAVEN’T
HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THAT HERE TODAY.
MAYBE IT GETS CONFUSEED A LOT. MY UNCLE, WILLIAM DAY, WAS A
FOOTBALL PLAYER HERE AT KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY NOW HIS GRAND-
GRAND-NEPHEW IS AN EIGHTH GRADER IN CALIFORNIA WITH THE SAME NAME
NAME. TODAY I’M HERE TO REPRESENT THE
INTER AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR COOPERATION ON AGRICULTURE.
WE HAVE BEEN PARTNERS AND SPONSORS OF THE GLOBAL AGENDA
FOR SUSTAINABLE LIVESTOCK. ECA REPRESENTS THE 34 MINISTRY
IES OF DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE OF
THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE COVERING CANADA TO ARGENTINA AND 14
ISLANDS IN THE CREEKIAN — CARIBBEANS.
AGRICULTURE IS A VITAL IMPORTANCE IN THE AMERICAS. IN DAIRY, THE AMERICA PRODUCEED
22% OF GLOBAL PRODUCTION BUT ONLY 10% OF THAT IS IN LATIN AMERICA WE HAVE LOT OF RAM FOR
GROWTH IN THE PRODUCTION IN THIS SECTOR.
ESPECIALLY IN LATIN, AMERICA. WE NEED TO IMPROVE COMBAT
DISEASE AND IMPROVE ANIMAL HEALTH AND INTRODUCE NEW
INNOVATIONS FOR BOTH PRODUCTION AS WELL AS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE
ENVIRONMENT AND GREENHOUSE GAS REDUCTION.
IN ADDITION, IMPROVEING ANIMAL WELFARE WILL BE A NEW PRIORITY
FOR IICA. ON SEPTEMBER 29th OF THIS YEAR
YEAR, IICA, THE U.S. DAIRY EXPORT COUNCIL AND THE PAN
AMERICAN DAIRY FEDERATION, SIGN SIGNED A NEW PARTNERSHIP DESIGN
DESIGNED TO STRENGTHEN COLLABORATION BETWEEN THESE
ORGANIZATIONS AND THE IICA TO PROMOTE SCIENCE-BASEED POLICYIES
AND REGULATIONS AFFECTING TRADE, FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS.
ANIMAL WELFARE IS AN AREA WHERE I CAN I CAN CAN
— IICA CAN HELP BUILD CAPACITY TO SHARE BEST PRACTICES AND NEW
INNOVATIONS. AS A FORMER OFFICIAL WITHIN THE
USDA WHO BOUGHT MEAT AND DAIRY PRODUCTS FOR THE NATIONAL FOOD
LUNCH PROGRAM, ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE IS SOMETHING I TAKE VERY
SERIOUSLY. AT IICA, I HOPE TO WORK WITH ALL
YOU TO IMPROVE WELFARE ACROSS THE HEMISPHERE.
TREATING OUR ANIMALS PROPERLY ALSO CONTRIBUTES TO HELPING THE
ENVIRONMENT. WE’VE SEEN SOME EXAMPLES OF THIS
HERE TODAY WITH THE PRESENTATION BY EL HATICO IN COLOMBIA.
WE HEARD LOT OF STATISTICS HERE TODAY.
I WILL REPEAT ONE OF THEM AND I HOPE IT’S TRUE.
MORE THAN ONE BILLION PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD OWE THEIR
LIVELIHOODS TO ANIMAL AGRICULTURE.
THAT’S ABOUT ONE IN SEVEN PERSON PERSONS UPON PLANET EARTH.
THE NUTRITION FOR MEAT AND DAIRY CANNOT SUBSTITUTEED BY PLANT AND
PROTEIN SO EASILY. WE MUST PROMOTE A BALANCEED DIET
. WE’VE HEARD ABOUT BALANCE HERE
TODAY TOO. IT’S NOT JUST A BALANCEED DIET
BUT BALANCEED INFORMATION. I’VE SPENT LOT OF TIME THIS YEAR
WORKING WITH THE FOOD TRANSFORMATION SPACE IN A
VARIETY OF FORUM. FOOD TRANSFORMATION SEEMS TO BE
THE NEW MODA, THE NEW THEME OF
THE DAY. THESE EFFORTS ARE ALL WELL AND
GOOD BUT ONLY FARMERS, MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE AND FOOD COMPANY
COMPANIES SUCH AS CARGILL WHO PRESENTED HERE EARLIER, ARE PART
OF THE DISCUSSION. FARMERS NEED TO BE AT THE TABLE
FOR DISCUSSIONS. THE PRIVATE SECTOR NEEDS TO BE
AT THE TABLE TOO. FOR THE MOST PART, THEY ARE NOT.
THE DISCUSSIONS I HEARD THIS MORNING WERE NOT REFLECTED IN
THE FOOD TRANSFORMATION DISCUSSION THAT THE UNITED
NATIONS AND OTHER FOUR ARE HAVING.
THIS DISCUSSION GET OUTSIDE OF THIS AUDITORIUM. DAIRY CHECKUP IS HERE IN FULL
FORCE, MAYBE THE BEEF CHECK OFF TOO.
EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES KNOWS WHAT THEY DO.
THEY MAY NOT HAVE HEARD OF THE CHECKOFFS, EVERYONE SEEN MILK
AND MUSTACHE. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT BEEF, IT’S
WHAT’S FOR DINNER. THAT KIND OF MARKETING ABOUT
AGRICULTURE IS WHAT WE NEED THIS ORGANIZATION AND GROUP TO DO
OUTSIDE OF THIS ROOM. AGRICULTURE IS PART OF THE
SOLUTION NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM PROBLEMS TO THE ENVIRONMENT AS
OTHER INDUSTRYIES HAVE MARKETED. I LOOK FORWARD TO LISTENING TO
THIS AND OTHER DISCUSSIONS HERE AT GASL AND HAVING IICA WORK
WITH YOU TO BILL — BUILD LIVESTOCK
SOLUTIONS THROUGHOUT THE AMERICA AMERICA.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH. // THANK YOU LLOYD.
WITH THIS, WE CAN START OUR PANEL DISCUSSION.
FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME DR. ULF MAGNUSSON.
VETERINARY PROFESSOR. HE’S BEEN RESEARCH ON ANTI-
ANTI-MICROBIAL RESISTANCE IN ASIA AND AFRICA.
HE’S ALSO COORDINATEING THE GASL ACTION NETWORK PARTNERS.
HE IS ONE OF THE CO-AUTHORS OF THE BACKGROUND PAPER AND HE WILL
GIVE A GENERAL OVERVIEW. // THANK YOU THANK YOU VERY MUCH
FOR THE INTRODUCTION. GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE.
MOST OF THE SPEAKERS HERE HAVE INTRODUCEED THEMSELVES WITH
STRONG CONNECTIONS TO K-STATE. I HAVE NO CONNECTIONS.
HOWEVER, SOME OF MY RELATIVES LONGTIME RELATIVES ESCAPEED
SWEDEN IN THE 1860s WHEN THEY HAD THE TERRIBLE FAMINE IN
SWEDEN TO THIS PART OF THE WORLD WORLD.
FOR MANY YEARS, WHEN I WAS A KID KID, WE HOPEED FOR SOME DISTANT
RELATIVE WAITING FOR SOME HERITAGE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OR
SO. BUT THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN.
I THINK IT’S TOO LATE NOW. THEY BELIEVE ALSO ANOTHER THING
THAT POSSIBLELY JUSTIFY MY POSITION HERE, MY GRANDPARENTS
WERE FARMERS. I HOPE IT’S OKAY, EVEN THOUGH
I’M NOT CONNECTED TO K-STATE. THIS IS THE CHAIN THAT HAS
PRODUCEED THIS PAPER. IT’S MYSELF.
IT’S MICHAEL APLEY HERE FROM K-STATE.
HE’S OVER THERE. HE HAD FANTASTIC TRUCK BY THE
WAY. HE PICKED ME UP WITH A COWBOY
HAT AT THE AIRPORT YESTERDAY. AND SOPHIA BOQVIST ALSO
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR AT SMU. AND REBECCA DOYLE FROM
UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE IN AUSTRALIA.
I ALSO SHOULD MENTION THAT MYSELF I’M THE COORDINATOR FOR A
AMR NETWORK AT GASL AND RECK ABOUT COULD —
REBECCA IS COORDINATOR AT ANIMAL WELFARE NETWORK.
SHE WOULDN’T MAKE IT — COULDN’T MAKE IT
HERE. I WILL STICK TO THE TOPIC.
I WILL TALK ABOUT ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE.
HOWEVER, BEFORE DIGGING INTO THIS, I I WANT TO EXPLAIN, THERE
ARE CONNECTIONS THROUGH THE OTHER DIMENSIONS THAT WE ARE
DISCUSSING HERE TODAY. FAITH AND NUTRITION SCHOOL
CONTRIBUTE TO FOOD AND NUTRITION SECURITY.
AS WE HEARD THIS MORNING. ALSO, HEALTHY ANIMALS CREATES
MORE PRODUCTIVE LIVESTOCK AND INCREASES CONSUMER TRUST AND IT
SHOULD BE DONE WITH THE MICROBIAL SYSTEM.
THAT SUPPORTS ECONOMIC GROWTH DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF
ECONOMIC LEVEL YOU ARE IN. THEN FINALLY, HEALTHY ANIMALS
PRODUCE MORE MEAT, MILK AND EGG HER EMISSION AND NATURAL
RESOURCE. THAT RELATES TO WHAT WE ARE
GOING TO HEAR LATER ON IN THIS AFTERNOON.
NOW, I WILL SPEAK TO THE FIVE
PREDEFINEED AREAS THAT WE WERE ASKED TO WRITE ABOUT.
WE DID TRAY TO STICK TO THIS IN THE WRITING TEAM. FOODBORNE DISEASES AND ANTI-
ANTI-MICROBIAL DISEASES AND ANIMAL WELFARE.
THIS IS GENERAL KIND OF PERSPECTIVE ANIMAL AND WELFARE
PRACTICES MAYBE DUE TO RESOURCES OR LACK OF RESOURCES OR
COMPETENCYIES AMONG PRODUCERS AND
AUTHORITYIES LACK OF POLICY AND SO ON.
IT COULD BE COUNTRYIES OR CULTURAL ISSUE ISSUES WHETHER IT’S
PROFITABLE TO INVEST IN THIS ELEMENT.
I WILL WALK YOU THROUGH ALL THIS CHART AND TRY TO EXPLAIN WHAT
KIND OF ISSUES OR CHALLENGES WE HAVE IDENTIFYIED AND THEN ALSO
WHAT NEED TO BE DONE, WHAT WE HAVE IDENTIFYIED IN OUR TEAM.
THE IMPACT OF ANIMAL DISEASES. WE WERE DISCUSSING SS ASF
WHETHER IT’S AFRICAN SWINE FEVER.
FOR US IT’S AFRICAN SWINE FEVER. THIS DISEASE MIGHT HAVE A
DEVASTATEING IMPACT ON BOTH ECONOMIC RETURNS ON TRADE
REGULATION, RESTRICTIONS THAT ARE FOLLOWING IT.
THERE’S AN OUTBREAK AND ALSO IN LOW INCOME AREAS.
IT’S AN URBAN ISSUE OF FOOD SECURITY
AND ANIMAL WELFARE, ., ALSO
SUFFERING FROM THE ANIMALS. HOWEVER, THERE ARE ALSO LOT OF
ENDEMIC ANIMALS WITH THE DISEASE DISEASES.
I THINK WE TEND TO NEGLECT IMPORTANCE OF THESE ENDEMIC
DISEASES THAT ARE THE KIND OF BACKGROUND THING THAT IS GOING
ON ALL THE TIME.
ESPECIALLY WITH LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRYIES.
COMMON THEMES FOR INNOVATION THROUGHOUT THE DISEASE,
MANAGEMENT IMPROVEED, DIAGNOSTIC S
DIAGNOSTICS. IT’S ALSO IMPROVEED KNOWLEDGE OF
TRANSMISSION BY SECURITY. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT INNOVATIONS
WE SHOULD NOT ONLY THINK ABOUT NEW THINGS.
IT’S ALSO PRACTICES, IT’S ALSO STRATEGYIES.
I THINK THAT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT.
THEN YOU MOVE ON TO MORE THINGS THAT ARE GETTING LOT OF MEDIA
ATTENTION. THAT IS ZOONOSES AND PANDEMIC.
FLU IS ONE AND SARS WAS ANOTHER
ONE. THE IMPACT IS VERY SIMILAR TO
THIS ANIMAL DISEASES. THIS IS FROM AVIAN FLU IN 2008. THERE ARE SEVERAL ENDEMIC CREATE
CREATING PROBLEMS FOR THE PUBLIC HEALTH FOR INSTANCE. HERE, WE CLAIM THAT DIFFERENT
INNOVATIONS ARE NEEDED FOR DIFFERENT LIVESTOCK SYSTEMS.
FOR EXAMPLE, HOW TO BUY SECURITY
HEALTH RISKS. I WANT TO STRESS THIS NOT ONLY
ABOUT TO TECHNICAL INNOVATION IT’S ALSO ABOUT GOVERNANCE AND
IN THIS ASPECT, IT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE THIS OFTEN USEED WORD,
ONE HEALTH. FOODBORNE DISEASES.
I DON’T KNOW YOU’RE AWARE THE BURDEN OF FOODBORNE DISEASES FOR
HUMANS IS ABOUT THE SAME AS THIS MAJOR COMMUNICABLE DISEASES.
THE MOST IMPORTANT OF THIS FOODBORNE DISEASES ARE FROM
ANIMAL-SOURCEED FOOD AND CHILDREN
AT LOW INCOME COUNTRYIES ARE HIGH
RISK. IT’S A MAJOR PROBLEM.
RECENT ONE ELEMENT HERE THAT WE HAVE TO
CONSIDER IS THAT THERE’S ONGOING SHIFT IN CLASSIC AND LINEAR FARM
TO FORK FOOD CHAIN TO MORE COMPLEX FOOD WEBS.
THAT MAKES THE CONTAINMENT OF THIS MORE COMPLEX. USEING BIG DATA AND INFORMATION
APPROACHES. YOU CAN FIND THINGS ON THE
INTERNET. THOSE OF YOU WHO WORK WITH LARGE
INFECTIOUS DISEASES, YOU CAN SEE CERTAIN SEARCH WORDS REALIZE
INCREASEING YOU CAN CONCLUDE SOMETHING IS GOING ON HERE.
ALSO FOOD. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE MULTI
MULTINATIONAL FOOD SYSTEM. THESE ARE AREAS THAT ARE IN
WHERE INNOVATIONS ARE NEEDED. THEN COMES TO ANTI-MICROBIAL
SYSTEM. IT WOULD BE CERTAIN SECTIONS
FROM ACTION NETWORK HERE AT 5:00 P.M. TODAY. IT’S CURRENTLY THE GREATEST
GREATER ADVANCES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE IN HUMAN HEALTH AND WELL
BEING AS WELL AS ANIMAL HEALTH WELFARE AND PRODUCTION.
THERE ARE LARGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STATE STATES ABILITY FOR
LIVESTOCK AS WELL AS REGULATORY MEANS IN PUBLIC HEALTH AND
AWARENESS. MEDICAL USE AFFECTED DISEASE —
OTHERWISE, THIS WILL NOT WORK. SOME ARE IN MANAGEMENT RELATE
AND OTHERS ARE CAPITAL. IT’S ABOUT CAPITAL INVESTMENT.
ANIMAL WELFARE, FINALLY, ANIMAL WELFARE IS AN UMBRELLA THAT
CONSIDER THE HEALTH AND NUTRITION AND BEHAVIOR NEEDSES
OF ANIMALS AND HOW THEY ARE MANAGEED.
THIS IS THE GENERAL DEFINITION OF AN ANIMAL WELFARE.
IT’S BECOMEING INCREASEING CONCERN
CONCERNS TO COMMUNITIES WHICH IS INFLUENCEING CONSUMER BEHAVIOR,
GOVERNMENT PROCESSES AND EXPECTATIONS. NOW I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT
IS NEEDED. ONE SHOULD HAVE AN INTEGRATEED
VIEW ON ANIMAL WELFARE I THINK. THERE ARE TERRIBLE HISTORYIES OF
THE SWINE FEVER OUTBREAK IN IN THE
NETHERLANDS WHERE LOT OF FARMERS COMMITTED SUICIDE, LEFT BUSINESS
AND COMMITTED SUICIDE AFTERWARDS BECAUSE
AFTERWARDS. HERE IS I WILL GO QUICK, IT’S
ABOUT THE YELLOW BOXES THAT I HAVE SHOWN YOU.
I WANT TO COME TO THE VERY END. THAT IS THE ROLE OF TRADE.
THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS FOR THIS CONFERENCE.
WHEN IT COMES TO THIS SUPER CONTAGIOUS ANIMAL DISEASES, WE
HAVE THE OIE SYSTEM IN PLACE. I THINK INDEED, THIS IS A TRADE
ISSUE AND YOU ALL KNOW ABOUT THIS.
LITTLE BIT SIMILAR TO VETERINARY WORK.
IT’S EQUALLY IMPORTANT, THERE ARE PRIVATE SECTORS STANDARDS
THAT IS CONTROLLING THE TREND OF ANIMALS RELATEING TO THAT.
THE SECOND BECOMES MORE COMPLEX .
INCREASEING THE AMR THREAT MAY PUSH REGULATORS TO DEMAND THAT
ANIMAL SOURCE FOOD SHOULD COME FROM LIVESTOCK RAISEED WITH LOW
USE OF ANTIBIOTICS. THAT IS A POSSIBILITY WITH BRAND
BRANDING, PUTTING ANOTHER TAG ON THE BEEF.
ANIMAL WELFARE IN THE SAME WAY, IT COULD POTENTIALLY BE AN
ELEMENT THAT INFLUENCE THE TRADE
OF ANIMAL-SOURCEED FOODS.
I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE ATTENTION.
LIVESTOCK SPECIES TOTALLY INCLUDEED BY THE WORLD INCLUDE
ING DEAR FRIENDS AT FAO, IT’S THE
REINDEER, IT’S THE INCOME FOR QUITE A FEW PEOPLE IN NORTH AND
SCANDINAVIA AND RUSSIA. THEY ARE THOSE THAT ARE
SUFFERING THE MOST FROM THE CLIMATE CHANGE.
THANK YOU. // THANK YOU FOR THAT.
NOW OUR SEC SPEAKER IS DR. DON HOENIG.
HE HAS BEEN SERVEING MANY YEARS AS STATE PUBLIC HEALTH IN MAINE.
SINCE 2014, HE HAS BEEN THE SENIOR VETERINARY ADVISOR FOR
THE AMERICAN HUMANE. DR. THOUGH ANYTHING WILL PROVIDE — DR. HOENIG WILL
PROVIDE HIS PERSPECTIVE. PLEASE WELCOME. // GOOD AFTERNOON, THANK YOU FOR
INVITEING ME TO THE GROUP. I COME FROM MAINE AND NEW
ENGLAND. WHERE I’M SURE OUR FOOTBALL TEAM
ISN’T VERY POPULAR IN THIS REGION NOW.
WE DID HAVE A GOOD WIN AGAINST STEELERS LAST NIGHT.
I WILL SAY THAT. I AM PUT IN POSITION OF 10
MINUTES RESPONDING TO A REALLY WELL-WRITTEN PAPER.
I WILL TRAY TO DO THAT. HOW DO I ADVANCE THE SLIDE?
DO I JUST HIT ENTER? I’M FROM AMERICA HUMANE.
WE’RE THE FIRST NATIONAL ANIMAL WELFARE ORGANIZATION.
ROOTS GOING BACK TO THE 1870s WHEN AMERICA HUMANE WAS
INTERPRET INSTRUMENTAL GETTING THE
LIVESTOCK PASSED. WE HELP BRING HORSES BACK FROM
WORLD WAR I. THAT RESULTED IN THE RED STAR
RESCUE PROGRAM. WE HAVE THE HOLLYWOOD PROGRAM,
IF YOU SIT AROUND UNTIL END OF A MOVIE, YOU’LL SEE THE DISCLAIMER
SAYING, NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THIS MOVIE.
THAT’S AMERICA HUMANE. OUR RESCUE TEAM HAS DEPLOYED IN
PEARL HARBOR, 9/11 FOR THE CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES AND
HURRICANES HARVEY, IRMA, MARIA, FLORENCE AND MICHAEL AND MOST
RECENTLY, TWO WEEKS AGO, FOR DORIAN.
WE HAVE A BROAD REACH.
OUR FARM ANIMAL WELFARE PROGRAM IS AT LARGEST AND OLDEST PROGRAM
IN THE UNITED STATES WITH AROUND A BILLION ANIMALS.
BEFORE I RESPOND, I WILL INVOKE ONE OF MY FAVORITE PHILOSOPHERS
WHO IS THE DUDE FROM THE BIG LA LAB
LABOWSKSKI, IT’S A GREAT MOVIE. HE SAID, IT’S POLITICALLED
SITUATION, LOT OF INS AND OUT OF LOT OF
OUTS, A LOT OF THINGS TO KEEP STRAIGHT IN MY HEAD, LOT OF WHAT
HAVE YOUS. I’M ALWAYS REMINDED OF THIS
QUOTE WHENEVER WE TALK ABOUT REALLY COMPLEX TOPICS LIKE WHAT
WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT TODAY. WHAT I THOUGHT I DO IN THE CASE
OF PAPER WAS KIND OF RESPOND TO SOME SPECIFIC AREAS THAT HAVE
SOME RELEVANCE TO MY EXPERIENCE BUT TO ALSO TO ANIMAL WELFARE
AND TO SCIENCE. FIRST ONE IS A QUOTE FROM THE
ARTICLE THAT SAYS IN SEVERAL COUNTRYIES REGULATIONS ABOUT THE
THESE ASPECTS WERE NOT IN PLACE WERE NOT RESOURCES TO ENFORCE
THEM. THAT RINGS TRUE TO ME.
IN THE EXAMPLE OF A DISEASE LIKE LIKE
BRUSO LOSIS.
THERE’S STILL A RESERVOIR OF IN THE GREATER YELLOWSTONE AREA AND
IT SPILLS OVER OCCASIONALLY. IT’S PRETTY MUCH GONE.
I WAS INVOLVEED IN THE LAST AREA THAT HAD BRUSOLOSIS.
THAT WAS THE LOST HERD IN NEW ENGLAND THAT HAD BRUSOLOSIS.
WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET A GOOD HANDLE ON THAT.
IN LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRY COUNTRIES FUNDING IS PROBLEMATIC
FOR DISEASES LIKE THAT. THAT CONTINUE TO BE ENDEMIC.
ANTI-MICROBIAL RESISTANCE, TALK ABOUT A COMPLEX TOPIC,
MONITORING PROGRAMS FOR ANTIBIOTIC RESIDUE, REQUIRE
MONEY, REGULATORY AUTHORITY AND COMMITMENT.
WHICH TO SYMPTOM SENT WE HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY.
WE PRETTY MUCH MONITOR EVERY TANK OR LOADED MILK FOR
ANTIBIOTICS NOW. THAT’S BEEN GOING ON FOR 25
YEARS. WE ARE ABLE TO DO SOME OF THOSE
THINGS IN THIS COUNTRY BUT THAT’S BECAUSE WE HAVE THE
COMMITMENT AND RESOURCES. THE SCOPE FOR ANIMAL WELFARE
INNOVATIONS TO ENHANCE THE SUSTAINABILITY IS HUGE.
TALK ABOUT AN UNDERSTATEMENT. ANIMAL HEALTH AND WELFARE GO
BEHIND IN HAND. WELFARE CAN RESULT IN FOODBORNE
DISEASE AND IMPROVEED WELFARE WILL IMPROVE PRODUCTIVEITY AND
FOOD SAFETY, MITIGATE THE RIGHT OF HUMAN HEALTH AND LEADS IN
ECONOMIC BENEFITS. BUT THE SCOPE IS HUGE.
AS WAS MENTIONED BY THE PREVIOUS SPEAKER, THE OIE CODES WHICH
THEY HAVE FOR WELFARE, ARE CERTAINLY A START.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY CODES IN PLACE FOR BROILER CHICKENS,
DAIRY, BEEF AND SWINE I BELIEVE AND THE LAYER CODES ARE UNDER
COMPONENT PERIOD. BUT ESSENTIAL IS A, CONTINUES TO
BE A WIDE GAP BETWEEN REGULATION AND IMPLEMENTATION IMPLEMENT
ATION. YOU CAN WRITE ALL THE LAWS YOU
WANT. I WAS A STATE VETERINARIAN FOR
MAINE. THEY REALIZED QUICKLY, YOU CAN
WRITE A REGULATION, WE CAN GO THROUGH THE HOOPS, BUT IMPLEMENT
IMPLEMENTATION IS A CHALLENGE. WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES?
ORGANIZEED FOR DISEASES, ORGANIZE
ORGANIZED DISPOSAL. IT’S NOT SUITED FOR ALL,
ESPECIALLY PROBLEMATIC FOR SOME OF THE LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME
COUNTRYIES. DUE TO COSTS, FEASIBILITY AND
COMPLIANCE. HUMAN HEALTH DOES AND SHOULD
TAKE PRECEDENCE IN LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRYIES.
HEALTHCARE, CLEAN WATER, SECURITY, GOVERNANCE, THEY’RE
ALL CONTROL OF DISEASES. I TOOK THIS PICTURE IN GHANA TWO
YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS THERE OVER ON OIE DEVELOPMENT MISSION.
THE HOTEL WE WERE STAYING AT WAS ON A BEAUTIFUL BEACH ON THE
SOUTH ATLANTIC. THERE WERE VILLAGES RIGHT NEXT
TO THE HOTEL THAT HAD MINIMAL OR NO SANITATION.
THERE WAS RAW SEWAGE GOING INTO THE OCEAN AND IT DIDN’T MAKE ME
WANT TO GO SWIMMING THERE. I REALIZED FOR PEOPLE LIVING
THERE, THAT IS A HUGE ISSUE THAT WATER ISSUES RESULTS IN PUBLIC
HEALTH ISSUES, DISEASES WHICH JUST ARE ENORMOUS, ENORMOUS
CHALLENGES. ZOONOSES AND PANDEMIC.
I WAS OVER IN ENGLAND IN MARCH MARCH 2002 WHEN THAT OUTBREAK,
FOOT AND OUTMOUTH BREAK JUST GOTTEN STARTED.
I SPENT A MONTH THERE. IT WAS THE WORSE MONTH OF MY
CAREER. IT WAS ALSO THE BEST MONTH OF MY
CAREER, BECAUSE IT CAUSEED ME TO COME BACK HERE AND START TO GET
INVOLVEED IN TAKING ACTION ON HOW
WE WOULD DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. I KILLED LOT OF ANIMALS OVER
THERE THAT I WOULD NOT DO NOW. WE HAVE COMMITTED TO VACCINATION
PROGRAM IN IN COUNTRY. WE HAVE DEVOTEED MONEY TO IT.
WE’RE FINALLY GOING TO PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS IN OUR
COUNTRY WITH RESPECT TO FOOT AND MOUTH VACCINATION.
FORGET ABOUT AFRICAN BORN FEVER, THAT’S GOING TO BE MORE OF A NIGHTMARE THAN FOOT AND MOUTH
DISEASE. LOT MORE ANIMAL WILL DIE OF THE
DISEASE THAN FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE.
MOST OF THE ANIMALS IN 2001 AND U.K. WERE KILLED BECAUSE OF THE
ANIMAL WELFARE REASONS. THEY COULDN’T BE MOVEED.
SO THEY HAD TO BE EUTHANIZE THE. THAT WAS TRAGIC.
MY EXPERIENCE REALLY CONTRIBUTE ED
SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE DIRECTION OF MY CAREER AFTER THAT.
SCIENCE, SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE.
DOES ANYBODY REMEMBER THAT SONG FROM THE ’80s?
PRETTY GOOD VIDEO TOO. YOU CAN LOOK IT UP ON YOUTUBE.
ENSUREING THIS KNOWLEDGE IS GROUNDED IN SCIENCE IS IMPORTANT
SO THAT SHAREED KNOWLEDGE MAKES GENUINE DIFFERENCES TO ANIMAL
WELFARE. WELL CONDUCTED, PIER REVIEWED
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH IS SORELY LACKING IN THE LIVESTOCK AND
POULTRY WELFARE REL REALM. IT IS LACKING.
THERE’S A GREAT NEED FOR ALL YOUR STUDENTS OUT THERE IN THE
AUDIENCE IF THERE ARE ANY, THERE’S A HUGE NEED FOR WELFARE
RESEARCH TO BE CONDUCTED FOR US TO DEVELOP RATIONAL ROLES AND
PRACTICES. LOOKING FORWARD, WILL INNOVATION
BE MARKET DRIVEN OR WILL REGULATION BE?
THE JURY IS STILL OUT. RECENT EXPERIENCE IN THE U.S.
POINTS TO MARKET DRIVEN. I’LL FINISH BY ASKING YOU TO
CONSIDER THE CHICKEN. NOT THE LOBSTER BUT THE CHICKEN.
INTERSTATE TRANSPORTATION OF CHICKEN NOT REALLY COVERED BY
FEDERAL LAW. E28 HOUR LAW COVERS LIVESTOCK.
CHICKENS ARE NOT COVERED IN THE HUMANE METHODS OF SLAUGHTER ACT.
THEY ARE COVERED KIND OF. BUT NOT IN THE ACT ITSELF.
IS THAT A FAILURE OF REGULATION OR JUST NOT A PRIORITY?
IN THIS COUNTRY, A COUNTRY WHICH IS CONSIDERED TO BE FAIRLY FAR
LONG IN DEVELOPMENT, ARE CHICKEN CHICKENS CONSIDERED TO BE
SANCTIONED BY MANY PEOPLE. I POSE THAT AS A QUESTION.
WE CURRENTLY REALLY DON’T COVER THEM IN SOME AREAS OF REGULATION
IN THIS COUNTRY. PARTICULARLY FEDERAL REGULATIONS
REGULATIONS. I MADE THE TEN MINUTES RIGHT?
THAT’S IT. I DIDN’T PUT MY CONTACT
INFORMATION THIS THERE IF YOU WANT TO E-MAIL ME. THANK YOU. // THANKS A LOT DON.
OUR NEXT SPEAKER WILL BE DR. JIM MULHERN.
HE’S THE HEAD OF THE NATIONAL NARC MILK PRODUCERS IN THE U.S.
NATIONAL MILK PRODUCERS FEDERATION WORKS WITH THE U.S.
WHITE HOUSE AND THE FEDERAL AGENCY ON DIFFERENT ISSUES
IMPACTING THE DAIRY COMMUNITY. HE’LL PRESENT TO US . // THANK YOU MARGHERITA.
GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYBODY. I LECHE LEARNED ONE THING HERE.
THEY RUN A REALLY TIGHT SHIP. I GOT 10 MINUTES TO DO MY
PRESENTATION. I WILL NOT WASTE ANY TIME.
THE STAFF PUT TOGETHER AN EXTENSIVE ONE.
I WILL RACE THROUGH IT QUICKLY AND I WILL TRY NOT TO TALK TOO
FAST. I WANT TO COVER MUCH OF THE
CONTENT HERE ON THIS PROGRAM. MARGHERITA MENTIONED, PART I
WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS THE FARM FARMERS ASSUREING RESPONSIBLE
MANAGEMENT. ACRONYM FARM PROGRAM.
HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE IN THE U.S. DAIRY INDUSTRY TO ADDRESS A
WIDE RANGE OF SUSTAINABILITY ISSUES FOR OUR INDUSTRY.
THERE’SIT’S EVOLVE THE OVERTIME. ONE OF THE CORNERSTONES IT WILL
CONTINUE TO EVOLVE. IT IS A PROGRAM THAT WILL GROW
WITH THE INDUSTRY AND GROW WITH THE CHALLENGES BOTH MARKETPLACE
AND GROW WITH THE SCIENCE AND ADVANCES FOR OUR INDUSTRY.
BRIEFLY, THE HISTORY OF THIS PROGRAM STARTED FRANKLY MANY
YEARS AGO. FOR OUR INDUSTRY, WHICH IS BASE
THE UPON GOOD ANIMAL HUSBANDRY PRACTICE.
NO PRODUCTION IN THE U.S. CONTINUES TO GROW WITH ADOPTIVE
SCIENCE, DOING BETTER AND BETTER JOB MANAGEING THE HERDS.
IN THE COURSE OF MY CAREER, I’VE BEEN WORKING IN DAIRY SINCE THE
EARLY ’80s, MILK PRODUCTION IN THE U.S. PER COW HAS MORE THAN
DOUBLEED. THAT TAKES GOOD SCIENCE TO MAKE
THAT HAPPEN. THE PRACTICES THAT AMERICAN
DAIRY FARMS TO ACHIEVE THAT KIND OF INCREASE FROM PRODUCTIVEITY,
ARE BASEED UPON HIGH-QUALITY CARE
OF ANIMALS, QUALITY FEEDING BUT WE KNEW THAT MORE NEEDS TO BE
DONE. AS WE SAW IN OUR INDUSTRY EARLY
YEARS OF THIS CENTURY, PRESSURES IN THE MARKETPLACE, THE
PROVIDENCE OF THEIR FOOD AND PRACTICES ON THE FARM WHERE THAT
MILK IS COMEING FROM, MILK AND MEAT, WE KNEW WE HAD ISSUES THAT
NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED. WE ALSO KNEW WE HAD A GOOD STORY
TO TELL. THROUGH THAT COMBINATION OF
FACTORS IN THE PERIOD BETWEEN 2005 AND 2009, WE PUT TOGETHER
THIS PROGRAM OF FARMERS RESPONSIBLE MANAGEMENT, DESIGNED
TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF ANIMAL CARE HERE IN THE U.S.
S IT MOST OF THE MILK SUPPLY IN THE
U.S. MARKETED THROUGH DAIRY COOPERATIVES.
THAT’S MY MEMBERSHIP ALONG WITH THE CHECKOFF PROGRAM WHICH WHAT
LLOYD DAY MENTIONED. WHICH IS THE FUNDS COLLECTED TO
SMALL DAIRY FARMERS IN THE U.S. TOGETHER, WE PUT TOGETHER THIS
PROGRAM NONFARM EVALUATION PROGRAM THROUGH THE INNOVATION
CENTER WHICH CAME ALONG AFTER WE DEVELOPED THESE PROGRAM,
INNOVATION CENTER, U.S. DAIRY REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE DAIRY
VALUE CHANGE. FROM FARM TO PROCESSING AND EVEN
CONNECTS THROUGH THAT GROUP, WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO ASSURE THAT
WE’RE ADDRESSING THE NEEDS AND CONCERNS OF THE WHOLE SUPPLY
CHAIN THROUGH THIS PROGRAM. IAS I SAID, WE START THIS
PROGRAM IN 2009 WHEN THE LIGHTS CAME UP.
WE’VE BEEN ENGAGEED MORE MANY YEARS.
DRUG RESIDUE ARE EXTENSIVE. THEY’VE BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS.
THAT GOES BACK TO THE LATE ’80s ’80s EARLY ’90s TO ADDRESS
THOSE ISSUES. IT’S BUILT OVERTIME.
AS THE FARM PROGRAM HAS ADDRESS ADDRESSED THE EXISTENCE IN THE
MARKETPLACE IT’S GROWN BEYOND THE ISSUE OF ANIMAL CARE.
I WILL TALK LITTLE BIT ABOUT COUPLE OF THOSE ISSUES, THOSE
ACTIVITYIES BUT I WILL FOCUS ON ANIMAL CARE IN MY PRESENTATION
HERE TODAY. THIS GRAPHIC SHOWS YOU WHAT ARE
NOW THE FOUR SILOS AS WE CALL THEM, OF THE FARM PROGRAM.
BASES OF ANIMAL CARE. WE HAVE EXTENSIVE PROGRAM,
EXTENSIVE IN ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AND WORKFORCE
DEVELOPMENT. IN TERMS OF GOVERNANCE, IT IS
INDUSTRY AND PRODUCER-BASEED. ALONG THAT BOTTOM THERE, YOU SEE
WE HAVE A FARMER ADVISORY COUNCIL THAT PROVIDES FEEDBACK
TO US ON THIS PROGRAM BUT PART OF THE FOCUS HAS BEEN TO GET
ROBUST ENGAGEMENT ACROSS THE ENTIRE VALUE CHAIN.
THE BLUE BOX IS HERE ARE THE ADVISORY GROUPS THAT WE HAVE TO
GATHER INPUT INTO THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING STANDARDS AND
PROTOCOLS FOR THIS PROGRAM FOR THE INDUSTRY.
EACH OF THOSE AREAS, THERE ARE FOUR SILOS, THESE THREE LINES
HERE CAPTURE THEM. WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT HERE,
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP HERE AND ANTIBIOTIC STEWARDSHIP.
WE HAVE TECHNICAL EXPERTISE FROM VETERINARIANS, ANIMAL HEALTH
PART OF THIS PROGRAM TO PUT TOGETHER FEEDBACK FOR US THAT
GOES THROUGH THE GOVERNANCE YOU SEE ACROSS THE TOP AND
ULTIMATELY OUR BOARD OF
DIRECTORS. I TALKED ABOUT THE FOUR SILOS.
I WILL FOCUS ON ANIMAL CARE WHICH IS THE BEDROCK BASE OF OUR
PROGRAM. FRANKLY AT THE THE HEART OF ANY
ANIMAL WELFARE EVALUATION PROGRAM IT’S AN AUDIT OF
PRACTICES ON THE FARM. GOAL HAS TO BE CONTINUOUS
IMPROVEMENT. THAT IS THE FOCUS OF THIS
PROGRAM TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE, TO RAISE THAT BAR OVERTIME FOR
INDUSTRY. WE HELP INSTILL THIS FARM
EVALUATION PROCESS. EACH FARM IN THIS PROGRAM GOES
THROUGH THE CYCLE THAT I WILL TALK ABOUT.
THESE EVALUATIONS ARE A SNAPSHOT IN TIME.
WE TRYIED TO HAVE BEST PRACTICE AND INSTILL THOSE.
WE USE THE EVALUATION PROCESS TO HELP US MEASURE THAT.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT YOU CAN’T GUARANTEE THAT ALL OF
THOSE PRACTICES ARE BEING CONDUCTED DAY IN AND DAY OUT.
HERE IS THE KEY PROGRAM COMPONENTS.
THREE OF THEM — THE INDUSTRY BEST PRACTICES HERE ON THE LEFT,
ANIMAL CARE, MILK, DRUG RESIDUE, PREVENTION PROGRAM, EXTENSIVE
CATALOG OF INFORMATION, PROVIDE ED
TO PRODUCERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND REALLY FORMS THE BASIS OF
THROUGH THESE REFERENCE MANUELS, CATALOG OF BEST PRACTICES WE
HOPE TO INSTILL AND SEE ON DAIRY DAIRIES ACROSS THE U.S.
IN THE MIDDLE, THIS AREA IS THE EXTENSIVE EVALUATION PROCESS
THAT WE GO THROUGH. ON FARM PROCESS, PREINTERVIEW
WITH THE FARM, TELLING THEM THE KINDS OF ISSUES THAT WE ARE
GOING TO BE ADDRESSING, THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECTED
AND THEN WE GO THROUGH ON THAT FARM MAKING ANIMAL OBSERVATIONS
AGAINST SET OF CRITERIA THAT IS USEED ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND
ACROSS THE INDUSTRY AND THEN WE HAVE THE REVIEW WITH THE
PRODUCER OF THE INTERVIEW AND ANY FOLLOW-UP ACTION THAT NEED
TO BE CONDUCTED AS PART OF THAT PROCESS.
IN TERMS OF THE PROGRAM, BY THE NUMBERS, HERE’S WHAT IT LOOKS
LIKE. WE HAVE BY 130 PARTICIPATEING
DAIRY COOPERATIVE AND PROCESSORS PROCESSORS, THAT’S MOST OF THE
MAJOR DAIRY COOPERATIVES IN THE U.S. THAT ARE PART OF OF THIS
PROGRAM, COVERING 98% OF THE U.S. MILK SUPPLY.
IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS, THAT NUMBER, 98%, HAS GROWN FROM I
THINK 40% GOING BACK TO 2014- 2014-2015, WE BUILT THIS PROGRAM
OF THE ENTIRE U.S. MILK SUPPLY IS NOW ENROLLED IN THE FARM
PROGRAM. WE’VE CONDUCTED 60,000 SECOND
PARTY EVALUATIONS ON FARMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
THESE ARE EVALUATIONS THAT ARE DONE ON A THREE-YEAR CYCLE WHICH
I’LL SHOW. THAT HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED BY OVER
450 TRAINED EVALUATORS. WE’RE CONSTANTLY TRAINING
EVALUATORS THROUGH THE SAME PROTESTANTLY TO
PROTESTANT PROTOCOLS AND STANDARDS ON FARMS
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. I MENTIONED BASIS OF THE PROGRAM
PROGRAM. WE ARE NOW APPROACHING JANUARY
OF NEXT YEAR, WE’LL BE ENTERING FARM PROGRAM VERSION 4.0.
THE FOURTH ITERATION OF THIS PROGRAM.
WE STARTED BACK IN 2009, THE PROGRAM AND THE FIRST VERSION
WAS VOLUNTARY. FARMS DID NOT HAVE TO BE PART OF
THIS. WE INTRODUCE THE THE CONCEPT AND
THEN WE HAD OUR COOPERATIVES AND PROCESSES OF ENGAGEING PROGRAM
IN VERSION TWO IN 2013, IT BECAME
MANDATORY MANDATORY.
IF YOU’RE ENROLLED IN THE FARM PROGRAM, YOU HAD TO SUBMIT ALL
YOUR FARMS TO EVALUATIONS TO THIS PROGRAM.
MADE IT MANDATORY AT THAT POINT AND WE DEVELOPED VOLUNTARY
ACTION PLANS TO FOLLOW-UP. AGAIN, WE’RE TRYING TO BUILD
THIS AS WE GO. WE ADDED A FEW OTHER FEATURES
THAT HAVE REALLY ADDED TEETH AND STRENGTH UP TO THE PROGRAM. IF YOU’RE NOT DOING THEM RIGHT,
YOU CAN BE SUBJECT TO SUSPENSION FROM THE PROGRAM WHICH JEOPARDY
JEOPARDIZES YOUR ABILITY TO MARKET MILK IN THE U.S. IF YOU
DON’T ADDRESS THOSE. NICE THING IS, WE’RE SEEING THIS
BY RAISEING THE BAR, PRODUCERS ARE RESPONDING AND WE ARE
ADDRESSING THESE ISSUES ON THE FARM AND IN THE CONSUMER
MARKETPLACE. IN TERMS OF THE ACCOUNTABILITY
STANDARDS THAT I MENTIONED, SUCCESS STORY VERSION 3.0 IS
TREMENDOUS. WE NOW HAVE NEARLY 80% OF DAIRY
FARMS IN THE U.S. THAT HAVE A VALID DCPR.
THAT INCREASEED QUITE A BIT. THE AREAS WE FOUND, THERE WASN’T
DCPR, ARE THOSE AREA WHERE IS YOU GOT SMALL FARMS THAT ARE
DISTANT, THEY ARE SPREAD OUT. DON HOENIG, THE FORMER
VETERINARY OF MAINE, KNOW THE ISSUE IN MAINE.
THERE WASN’T ENOUGH LARGE ANIMAL ANIMALS AND THEY TO TRAVEL TO
GET TO FARMS. FOR THE MOST PART THAT’S BEEN
ADDRESSED. WE HAVE 90% OF HERDS THAT HAVE
CONDUCTED ANNUAL EMPLOYEE TRAINING.
VERY CRITICAL FOCUS OF THIS PROGRAM AND YOU SEE THE OTHER
NUMBERS. WE’RE VERY PLEASEED WITH THE
PROGRESS WE’VE MADE AND WHERE THERE ARE SHORTCOMINGS, WE’VE
ESTABLISHED METRICS — BENCHMARK AND THEN FOLLOW-UP EVALUATIONS
SO THE FARMS THAT AREN’T MEETING THOSE HAVE COME AROUND AND THEY
ARE ADDRESSING THOSE ISSUES. I’M NOT GOING TO GO INTO DETAIL
IN SOME OF THE CHANGES IN 4.0
COMING UP. THIS SLIDE SHOWS IT.
THESE AREAS HERE ARE ONES THAT ARE NOT MANDATORY CORRECTIVE
ACTION PLAN. IF YOU’RE NOT DOING THESE, IF
YOU DON’T HAVE WRITTEN PLANS ON YOUR OPERATION, IT WILL BE AN M
CAP, MANDATORY CORRECTIVE ACTION ACTION, YOU’LL HAVE A LIMITED
TIME FRAME TO ADDRESS THOSE AND WE’LL COME BACK AND DO AN
EVALUATION. WE’RE SEE RAISEING THE BAR,
INDUSTRY HAS RESPONDED AND IT WORKED VERY WELL TO ADDRESS
THESE ISSUES. FINALLY LET ME NOTE ON THIS
PROGRAM, IT IS IMPORTANT AS A PREVIOUS SPEAKERS HAVE MENTIONED
MENTIONED, FROM THE STANDPOINT OF NOT ONLY ARE DOMESTIC MARKET
BUT INTERNATIONALLY. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE
SUSTAINABILITY TO DEMONSTRATE TO OUR CONSUMERS IN THE U.S. THAT
WE’RE MEETING THOSE. VERY PLEASEED FARM PROGRAM IS
THE FIRST ANIMAL CARE PROGRAM IN THE
WORLD TO BE ISO CERTIFIED. OTHERS IN THAT PIPELINE.
THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO THE SUCCESS WE’VE HAD IN THAT
COUNTRY IN ADDRESSING THESE ISSUES, RIGOROUS PROGRAM AND
RAISEING THE BAR AIR MEETING THE CONCERNS THAT WE SAW AMONG OUR
CUSTOMERS AND CONSUMERS. I HOPE I GOT IT IN TIME MAGAZINE
MAGAZINE. I’LL BE HAPPY TO RESPOND TO ANY
QUESTIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU JIM.
I WANT TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT YOU’RE VERY WELCOME TO SHARE
YOUR QUESTIONS UPLOAD THROUGH
THE APP AND THE PAPER. OUR NEXT SPEAKER WILL BE DR.
DR. ARMANDO HOET. HE’S HE’S MANAGEING SEVERAL
RESEARCH FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRY COUNTRIES. DR. HOET, HE WILL SHARE HIS
EXPERIENCE IN CANADIAN AND LATIN AMERICA IN APPLYING IDEAS FOR
MONITORING AMR IN THE FOOD CHAIN CHAIN. // GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYBODY.
I HAVE MY STOPWATCH HERE JUST IN CASE I NEED TO KEEP THE TIME
UNDER CONTROL. FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE
ORGANIZERS, PROVIDING THE PRESENTATION TO ALLOW ME TO BE
HERE TO SHARE FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN
FAO FOR THE SPONSORS THAT ALLOW ALLOWED ME TO BE HERE.
GOING BACK TO THE POINT, THERE’S A BALANCE OF ANTI-MICROBIAL
SYSTEMS, FOOD SUPPLY AND FOOD SAFETY, FOOD SECURITY.
IT’S SOMETHING THAT IS QUITE IMPORTANT. ANTI-MICROBIAL TO THE FOOD
SUPPLY ARE THE MAIN ISSUES. ONE OF THE FIRST QUESTIONS THAT
WE NORMALLY GET IN THE COUNTRY IS WHERE TO START.
LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRYIES . I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU CUSTOM
EXPERIENCE EXPERIENCES HOW WE DEAL WITH
PROGRAMS OVERTIME. BEST EXAMPLE IS EXPERIENCE WE
HAVE THE COUNTRYIES IN THE CARIBBEAN S. THIS PROGRAM STARTED WITH TWO
WEEK LONG TRAINING PROGRAM. WE BROUGHT THEM TO GET TRAINING
FROM THE BIOLOGY TO THE SCIENCE PROGRAMS.
THAT’S .
WHAT THE INNOVATION PART OF THIS TYPE OF TRAINING.
INNOVATION FOR US THAT SECOND WEEK OF THE PROGRAM, IT WAS
DEDICATEED TO HELP THIS ORGANIZATIONS TO DEVELOP
STANDARDS. WE WENT THROUGH ALL THESE
CURRENT COUNTRYIES THAT HAVE PRIMARY PRODUCTION S. TRYING UNDERSTAND THE CAPACITY
AND MUTATIONS. WE DECIDEED WITH THESE OFFICIALS
, THE STANDARD OPERATION PROCEDURE
PROCEDURES THAT WILL BE PROVIDE PROVIDING ACROSS THE CARIBBEAN.
WE SUCCESSFULLY TRAINED FROM OFFICERS AND TO INSPECTORS AND
THESE ARE OPERATIONS WHERE DESIGNED BY THEM.
WE USE TECHNOLOGY . WE ARE LIKE THE MOST OPERATIONS
HOW YOU COLLECT SAMPLES. AND AT THE SAME TIME, WOULD BE
ABLE TO GENERATE BASELINE DATA. THE COUNTRYIES NOW HAVE THEIR
OWN DATA AS WELL AS DATA TO
RECOGNIZE PARTICULAR STRENGTHS TO MOVE THROUGH THE SUPPLY CHAIN
FROM THE FARM TO THE TABLE. BRING IT TO THE NEXT QUESTION.
WHEN YOU HAVE TARGETS, THE INDUSTRY SUPPORT HOW YOU GO TO
THE NEXT LEVEL. HOW YOU BILL THE NATIONAL
ASSISTANCE. HOW MANY FAMILIAR WITH THE
GUIDELINES? 11 SEE HANDS?
ONLY — LET ME SEE HANDS HANDS?
WE HAVE A GROUP OF PROFESSORS FROM THE NATIONAL LEVEL.
THIS IS A COOKING BOOK TO HAVE ALL THE ELEMENTS NEED TO CREATE
NATIONAL PROGRAMS AND THE FOOD SUPPLY FROM FARM TO TABLE.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? HOW MANY OF HAVE USEED A COOKING
BOOK BEFORE? MOST OF YOU RIGHT? NORMALLY THESE ARE THE
EXPECTATIONS. THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS IN THE END.
THE REASON FOR THAT, EVEN THOUGH ALL THE ELEMENTS ARE THERE,
ASSUME THERE’S BECOME KNOWLEDGE AND SOME BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE.
WHERE THE INNOVATION AND REASON WE’RE HERE.
INNOVATION WE WENT AHEAD AND WE CREATEED A SYSTEM.
THIS IS A WORKSHOP THAT WE DO WITH THE INTERAMERICAN
CORPORATION OF PUERTO RICO. WE GO TO THE COUNTRY AT LEAST
TWO AND A HALF DAYS AND WE MET IN THAT GROUP, CLOSEED DOORS,
LIKE A RETREAT FROM DECISION MAKERS, FOOD SAFETY, PRODUCERS
PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS TO ASK THEM DO THOSE TWO AND A HALF DAY
DAYS TO MAKE DECISIONS. WE START WITH STEP ONE.
DECIDE WHAT WILL BE THE COMMODITYIES IN THE GROUP
THEY’LL BE COMMON MONITORING FOR THE
ANTI- ANTI-MICROBIAL SYSTEM. WE CREATEED THIS PROGRAM.
FOR THOSE WHO WORK INTERNATIONAL WITH PEOPLE, YOU RECOGNIZE THOSE
GUYS WORE MULTIPLE HATS. IN THIS PARTICULAR COUNTRY OF
BELIZE, THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF THE MONITORING PROGRAM, THE
NATIONAL PROGRAM SHE’S IN CHARGE OF THE SAFETY LAB, HE HAS THREE
OR FOUR MORE OTHER COMMITTEES TO DEAL.
YOU THINK THIS PERSON WILL BE ABLE TO WRITE A NATIONAL PLAN?
IMPOSSIBLE. HOW SUCCESSFUL IS THE TOOL?
WE HAVE USEED THE TOOL ALREADY IN
TEN DIFFERENT COUNTRYIES ACROSS LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN.
WE HAVE COUNTRYIES LIKE CHILE, THEY HAVE SOME ELEMENTS IT’S A
MATTER MATTER OF HELPING WITH
ASSISTANCE AND SEE WHERE THE GAP GAPS ARE.
OR COUNTRYIES TO HAVE NO INTEREST INTEREST. THIS NATIONAL PROGRAMS ARE BASE
ED ON WHAT THE GUIDELINES INDICATE
ED INDICATED.
IT’S ONE OF THE BIG CONCERN FOR US.
OTHER THING WE LOCATE, COUNTRY IES
THAT PRODUCE BALANCE START TO GET DATA AND START TO SEE SOME
BALANCE IN THE FOOD SUPPLY. PARTICULARLY QUESTIONS WE GET
FROM THE INDUSTRY AND PRODUCERS AND GARM WHAT DO WE DO NOW. THIS IS METHODOLOGY WE ARE TEST
TESTING AND AGRICULTURE.
WE ARE PUTTING THIS TOGETHER TO LAUNCH IT IN OCTOBER.
WHAT IS THIS? BASICALLY THIS IS VERY
SOPHISTICATEED SPOT. WE HIGH LEVEL PROFESSIONALS FROM
THE RETAIL, FARMERS AND COMMODITY ASSOCIATIONS TO BRING
THEM TOGETHER, TO SOCIALIZE WHAT WE FOUND. MOST IMPORTANT PART IS TRYING TO
FIND SOLUTIONS THAT ARE UNIQUE TO THAT COUNTRY AND THEN ASK
THEM TO PRIORITIZE TO SEE WHAT IS DAY FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS.
THESE ARE THE LAST POINT. I WAS MENTIONING HERE, HOW YOU
BRING ALL THAT TOGETHER. THESE ARE PROGRAMS PUTTING
TOGETHER THAT ALLOW THE COUNTRY TO HAVE EVALUATION AND HOW THEY
PUT ALL THESE COMPONENTS MICROBIAL, EVIDENCE PRACTICE AND
SEE WHERE THEY ARE. PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT WORK TRYING
TO HELP COUNTRYIES, IT WAS IN A DIRECTION FOR US TO MOVE FORWARD
ALL THE TIME. HOPEFULLY, THE LITTLE BIT OF 30
SECONDS. GIVE PRETTY BIG OVERVIEW HOW WE
TRYING TO DO THIS AT THE MA MACRO
LEVEL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. // OUR LAST SPEAKER FOR THIS
SESSION WOULD BE DR. MARTIN BARASA.
HE HAS 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN DEVELOPMENT AID.
HE HAS BEEN WORKING IN SOUTH SUDAN.
HAS HE IS REGIONAL HEAD PROGRAM. // THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
IT IS MY PLEASURE TO SPEAK TO YOU LADIES AND GENTLEMEN ON THE
ADDITIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON THE ISSUES OF ANIMAL HEALTH AND THE
WELFARE. I DO KNOW THAT WE ARE IN THE
TAIL END WHAT I DO. I HOPE I DO HAVE — AS WE GO
THROUGH THIS. I COME HEAR FROM PERSPECTIVE
PRACTITIONERS TO INTRODUCE NEARLY 20 YEARS OF MY LIFE
IMPLEMENTING PROGRAMS THAT FOCUS MAINLY ON ANIMAL HEALTH AND
THEREFORE, MY TALK AND DISCUSSIONS WILL NOT BE MODERNS
ON THE SCIENTIFIC OUTPUT THAT YOU HAD THIS MORNING BUT MORE
EXPERIENCE. IN THIS BACKGROUND, I HAD DIRECT
CONTACTS WITH LAST PRODUCERS FOR CONCERNS AND NEEDS AND CONTACT
WITH THE POLICY MAKE ERS. I WENT– WE HAD A MEMBER OF THE
GLOBAL NETWORK ABOUT — OUR VISION IS
DRIVEN BY HEALTHY PEOPLE, HEALTHY PLANET.
ISSUE HERE IS HEALTHY ANIMAL IS CONDITION FOR ACHIEVEING GOOD
HUMAN HEALTH AND SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOOD STRATEGYIES FOOD AND
NUTRITION SECURITY AND WELL BEING OF OUR POPULATION.
YOUR MISSION FOCUSES ONLY REDUCTION OF POVERTY AND
CONTRIBUTION TO FOOD AND NUTRITION SECURITY AND IMPROVE
LIVELIHOOD BY SUPPORTING FARMS AND LIVESTOCK.
VSF INTERNATIONAL IS A MEMBER .
WE HAVE 25 STRATEGYIES. IDENTIFYIED EIGHT KEY
INTERVENTIONS. ONE KEY IS IMPROVEED ANIMAL
HEALTH, WELFARE AND PRODUCTIVEITY
PRODUCTIVITY. I’M SPEAKING ABOUT THIS TODAY
AND VSF GERMANY. WE OPERATE IN SIX COUNTRYIES IN
AFRICA, MAINLY IMPLEMENTING ASSISTANCE AND DEVELOPMENT IN
PROGRAMS FUNDED BY A VARIETY OF DONORS.
IT’S ANIMAL HEALTH ABILITY. ELEMENTS OF BENEFIT AND PRIDE
WITH HELP OF ANIMALS. SUPPORT SERVICE AND
INFRASTRUCTURE AND HYGIENE AND FOOD SECURITY. THERE ARE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS A
ARISE IN AFRICA WHERE SAFE FOOD IS A PROBLEM. WE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH GOVERNANCE
GOVERNANCE. FOR EXAMPLE IN THE WORK THAT WE
DO, TO PROVIDE BASIC SKILLS TO PROVIDEERS OF ANIMAL HEALTH.
IT’S A KEY ACTION. AS I MENTIONED, THE WORK OF THE
VSF FOCUSES ON — I NEED TO
MENTION WHEN WE DISCUSS ANIMAL WELFARE IS NOT JUST LIMITED TO
THE FOOD ELEMENTS. WE ARE PLAYING A HUGE ROLE IN
ADDRESSING THE WELFARE CONCERNS OF STRAY DOG, OFFICIALLY IN
AFRICAN COUNTRYIES AND CITYIES IN
URBAN AREAS. WELFARE I WILL SEE NUMBER OF THINGS THAT
ILLUSTRATE JUST WHAT WE DO . WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT ADVANCES
HAVE BEEN MADE THAT DRIVEN BY THE TECHNOLOGY.
MY QUESTION IS, IS AFRICA BEING LEFT BEHIND?
IN THE AFRICAN CONTEXT WITH REGARD TO ANIMAL HEALTH, FOR
MANY COUNTRYIES — IF YOU THOSE COUNTRY
COUNTRIES HAVE TRYIED GOOD EFFORTS TO IMPROVE THIS TO DE
DEPLOY AND APPLY IMPLEMENTS APPLICATIONS. IN TERMS OF WELFARE, THE
QUESTION IS, MANY PEOPLE WHO — IN THE LONG-TERM, MANY PEOPLE
WILL DROP FROM THEIR DIET, AND BECOME VEGETARIANS, AN INCREASE
IN PRODUCTION OR CONSUMPTION OF ANIMAL PRODUCE.
WITH PRODUCTION OF ANIMALS THE MARKET IS VERY IMPORTANT AND WE
EXPECTED INCOMES AND NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS. I LIKE TO CONCLUDE BY SAYING —
OFFICIAL PARTNER IN ROLLING OUT WONDERFUL AND EXCELLENT PRODUCTS
THAT WE HAVE BEEN FORMED AND AVAILABLE TO TRANSFORM THEM INTO
PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. // THANK YOU MARTIN.
THANKS TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL PRESENTERS. UNFORTUNATELY, WE DON’T HAVE SO
MUCH TIME FOR QUESTIONS. FIRST, FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVES,
WHAT ACTIONS NEEDS TO BE IMPLEMENT
IMPLEMENTED FOR ANIMAL WELFARE TO RESPOND TO THE INCREASEING
DEMAND? I DON’T KNOW WHO WANTS TO START. // ONE CONCEPTUAL THING THAT WE
HAVE TO INTEGRATE IN OUR BRAINS, ANIMAL WELFARE, ANIMAL HEALTH,
PRODUCTIVEITY AND PROFITABILITY GOES VERY HAND IN HAND.
IT’S NOT A CONFLICT. IT GOES HAND IN HAND.
I THINK THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN HERE BY SEVERAL PRESENTERS.
// I WOULD JUST ADD. I AGREE WITH THAT.
THAT’S BEEN OUR EXPERIENCE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES THAT THE
ANIMAL HUSBANDRY IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR INDUSTRY AND
BY HIGH ANIMAL QUALITY CARE, COST COME DOWN, IT REALLY HAS
BEEN WHAT HAS HELPED US SALE OUR ANIMAL CARE PROGRAM, BETTER JOB
YOU DO ADOPTING BEST KNOWNS AND PRACTICES ON YOUR FARM, INCREASE
INCREASES PRODUCTIVEITIES, MINIMIZES PROBLEMS AND ISSUES
AND IMPROVES OPERATION. // I WOULD AGREE WITH BOTH THOSE
THOSE. DESPITE THE FACT THAT WE SEE SO
MUCH OPPOSITION TO WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER TO BE GOOD SCIENCE, FOR
EXAMPLE IN THE CASE OF VACCINATIONS.
WE HAD A BIG FIGHT THIS WINTER IN MY STATE OVER REMOVEING
RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION FOR VACCINATEING PEOPLE FOR MEASLES.
WE GOT TO THE POINT IN THIS COUNTRY WHERE WE DIDN’T HAVE A
MEASLES. NOW WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF CASES.
THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THROUGH — I DON’T KNOW WHERE
THEY GET THEIR KNOWLEDGE, MOSTLY THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA.
THEY DON’T BELIEVE THE SCIENCE. I THINK THOSE OF US INVOLVEED IN
SCIENCE CAN’T GIVE UP HOPE. WE HAVE TO ENGAGE THE
POLICYMAKERS. WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO BEAT THE
DRUM THAT NO, YOU HAVE TO — THE SCIENCE IS GOOD.
ON SOME OF THESE THINGS. WE KNOW THE SCIENCE ON
VACCINATIONS, THEY WORK. LET’S KEEP THE FAITH.
THAT’S AWL I WOULD SAY. DON’T LOSE HOPE. // ONE IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT
BOTHERS ME AND LISTENING TO VERY GOOD PRESENTATION IS HOW WE
PACKAGE IN A VERY SIMPLE WAY THE MESSAGES, SCIENTIFIC OUTPUTS
THAT ARE PRESENTED HERE FOR COMMUNICATION WITH OUR PRODUCERS
PRODUCERS. I THINK THAT ONE THING WE HAVE
TO ACHIEVE BALANCE AND UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE ISSUES
OF ANIMAL HEALTH AND ANIMAL WELFARE.
WE HAVE A PACKAGE OF COMMUNICATION DESIGNED TO TARGET
OUR PRODUCERS AS WELL AS PACKAGE
OF INFORMATION WHERE IT’S EASY
TO CONSUME AND OPERATIONAL. // THANK YOU.
MAJORITY OF QUESTIONS WERE ABOUT ANIMAL WELFARE.
I THINK HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED. I WANT TO MOVE TO QUESTIONS.
I WAS A BIT SURPRISEED ONE MENTIONED BRIEFLY IN THE
PRESENTATION IN THE PAPER. I THINK IT’S VERY INTERESTING
APPROACH TO REACH LONG-TERM EFFECTS AND MINIMIZE ANIMALS AND
PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT. MAYBE I WANTED TO ASK YOU IF YOU
CAN MAKE SOME REFLECTIONS AROUND THIS, NOT.
ONLY THINKING ABOUT ONE HEALTH AS RESEARCH AND ACADEMIA
PARTNERSHIP, BUT REALLY FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF IMPLEMENTING
LIKE THE PARTNERSHIP THAT COULD BE —
[INDISCERNIBLE] // USEING ONE HEALTH WORDING.
IT TOOK OFF SOME YEARS AGO. IT IS NOT ABOUT TALKS HEALTH BUT
ELECTION. NOW IT’S THE REVERSE.
WE WILL CONSIDER TO PUT IN THE WORDING ONLY HEALTH.
MENTALLY OF COURSE, WE ARE THERE THERE.
MAYBE IT’S POLITICALLY POLITICAL LY STUPID
NOT TO USE IT .
// WITHOUT ONE HEALTH MENTALITY, IT WOULD FAIL.
THAT’S WHEN YOU DO THESE PROGRAM PROGRAMS.
YOU HAVE THE PEOPLE FOR MENTAL HEALTH, YOU HAVE TO HAVE PEOPLE
FROM MENTAL SAFETY AND THEY WILL DECIDE THE MORE RECENTLY, WE ARE
BRINGING PEOPLE FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL SIDE.
SOMETIMES HAVING A CHALLENGE TO CONVINCE PEOPLE ON ENVIRONMENTAL
HEALTH FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRY IES
BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT ENVIRONMENT DON’T PLAY A ROLE IN
THAT. IN THEIR MIND IT’S HOSPITAL OR
FARMS THE PROBLEM THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO.
WHEN WE CONNECT THE DOTS, THE BACKDOOR, HOSPITAL, THEY HAVE
EQUALIZE AND WATER AND LIVESTOCK
FARMS THAT HOW THAT — HOW WE CAN — // FOR ME THE ONE HEALTH COMES
DOWN TO VERY LOCAL LEVEL. WHEN WE HAD A TRIPLE ENCEPHALITIS OUTBREAK WE HAD 17
DIE IN A MONTH. IT WAS IN A COMMUNITY IN CENTRAL
MAINE WHERE THERE WAS A NEWLY ARRIVEED AMISH COMMUNITY AND
COUPLE OF HORSEERS WERE OWNED BY THE AMISH PEOPLE.
WE GOT TOGETHER WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, PRACTICE
ING VETERINARIANS, THE DEPARTMENT OF
AGRICULTURE AND WE SAT DOWN WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO INVOLVEED IN
THAT IN THE MILK ROOM. WE CONDUCTED A PUBLIC MEETING.
NOT A PUBLIC MEETING BUT A MEET MEETING TO TALK ABOUT HOW TO
PREVENT THIS NOT ONLY IN THEIR HORSES BUT IN THEIR KIDS.
TRIPLE E KEEPS RAISEING ITS UGLY HEAD.
THERE HAVE BEEN SEVEN PEOPLE IN MASSACHUSETTS AFFECTED WITH THAT
THIS YEAR. ONE HEALTH IS GETTING TO KNOW
COUNTERPART IT IS YOU’RE IN GOVERNMENT AND IF YOU’RE NOT IN
ENTERPRISE, GETTING TO KNOW YOUR COUNTERPARTS ON THE OTHER SIDE
AND SITTING DOWN WITH THEM AND PROBLEM SOLVE SOME OF THE THINGS
ALSO ENGAGEING WITH THE FARMERS WHO ARE GREATLY AFFECTED BY SOME
OF THESE DISEASES. // THANK YOU.
MAYBE YOU CAN UPDATE, JUST LAST SENTENCE OF CONCLUSION OR ONE
LAST REMARK. // I THINK AGAIN, THIS GOES HAND
IN HAND. I THINK THAT IS CRITICAL.
SOMETIMES, WHEN I SPEAK KUWAIT A QUITE A
LOT WHEN I SPEAK ABOUT ANTI- ANTI-MICROBIAL, PEOPLE SAY IT
DOESN’T PAY OFF. I WOULD SAY THAT PROFITABILITY,
IT’S A VERY DYNAMIC THING. IT DEPENDS ON THE POLICY
ENVIRONMENT. IT DEPENDS ON TARIFFS AND TRADE
AGREEMENTS. IT DEPENDS ON CONSUMER PRESSURE.
THAT IS A VERY DYNAMIC THING THAT PROFITABILITY.
IT’S NOT A FIX NUMBER IN DOLLARS DOLLARS.
// I’M BEEN INVOLVEED WITH AMERICAN HUMANE FOR 5.5 YEARS
NOW. THE BREADTH OF OUR ORGANIZATION
IS ENORMOUS. I’M SITTING IN FOR MY CEO WHO
CAN’T BE HERE BECAUSE SHE’S INVOLVEED IN RECOGNITION OF RE
RETIREING MILITARY DOGS TODAY IN D.C. AND TOMORROW.
MY INVOLVEMENT WITH THE FARM PROGRAM HAS EXPOSEED ME TO ABOUT
25 SCIENCE ADVISORS THAT CAUSE
ME TO LOOK AT WELFARE DIFFERENT DIFFERENTLY.
ONE OF THE CONCEPTS TALKED ABOUT LAST YEAR WAS THIS CONCEPT
PROVIDEING A GOOD DAY FOR THE ANIMALS THAT
ANIMALS THAT WE’RE RAISEING. IDEA, WE’RE PROVIDEING THEM A
GOOD DAY BECAUSE AT THE END OF THEIR LIVE, WE’RE GOING TO
SACRIFICE THEM. WE’RE GOING TO KILL THEM AND EAT
THEM. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO THINK
ABOUT THAT ALL THE TIME AND IMPORTANT FOR US TO IMPART THAT
TO THE PEOPLE, THE FARMERS THAT WE WORK WITH.
TRY TO GET THEM TO LOOK AT IT THAT WAY TOO.
EVERYTHING THAT WE DO IS ALL ABOUT — I HEARD THIS PERSON SAY
THIS. I DON’T KNOW WHO IT WAS, IT SAID
IT’S HAPPY DAY. ESSENTIALLY THAT’S WHAT IT IS.
PROVIDE A GOOD LIFE. // MY CLOSEING COMMENTS WILL BE
OUR 10-YEAR 10-YEAR EXPERIENCE IN THE
FARM PROGRAM, INTRODUCEING ANIMAL
CARE TIEING THAT TO GOOD ANIMAL HUSBANDRY WHICH IS THE
FOUNDATION OF OUR INDUSTRY TO CONSUMER AND CUSTOMER REQUESTS
WAS A COMPLETE LINKAGE. THERE’S NOT A CONFLICT BETWEEN
THE TWO. WHAT OUR EXPERIENCES SHOWING US
FOR PRODUCER PERSPECTIVE IS, THE MORE WE CAN GET PRODUCERS TO
EMBRACE CHANGE, TO THE QUESTION YOU RAISEED, RESISTANCE TO
CHANGE IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES
WE HAVE IN ANY ENDEAVOR. ENGAGE IN CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
IMPROVEMENTS WITH THE UNDERSTAND UNDERSTANDING THAT THOSE
INVESTMENTS PAY OFF IN TERMS OF PRODUCTIVEITY, THAT THE FUTURE
BELONGS TO THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO EMBRACE CHANGE AND CONTINUOUS
CONTINUOUSLY CONTINUOUS CONTINUOUSLY TO IMPROVE THE
OPERATIONS. // FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, ANIMAL
WELFARE, ANIMAL HEALTH, HUMAN HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
GO TOGETHER. RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE LOT OF
INFORMATION SOMETIMES TO COMBAT THOSE NEGATIVE CAMPAIGNS ABOUT
FOOD PRODUCTION WE EAT. WE NEED TO PRODUCE.
WE NEED TO PRODUCE THE DATA THAT THE CONSUMER REALLY WANTS TO
KNOW WHAT THEY ARE CONSUMEING. HAPPY FOR US WE HAVE ALL THE
TOOLS THAT ALLOW US TO ACCOMPLISH THAT IN EFFICIENT WAY
WAY. // ON THE ISSUE OF ANIMAL HEALTH
HEALTH, ONE CAN BE REDUCEED. WE ARE ADDRESS ONE PROBLEM TO
CREATE THE OTHER. WE ARE NOT GOING TO ELIMINATE
THAT. THEREFORE WE MUST USE ANTIBIOTIC
ANTIBIOTICS TO REDUCE ANIMAL DISEASES.
WE ARE CREATEING THE PROBLEM OF ANTI-MICROBIAL RESISTANCE. IN TERMS OF WELFARE, I THINK THE
BIGGEST PROBLEM HERE IS LOT OF WELFARE CONCERNS IS BECAUSE MICROBIAL. WE NEED TO INVEST IN
COMMUNICATION. // THANK YOU EVERYONE.
BIG APPLAUSE TO OUR PANELISTS. JUST BEFORE THE BREAK, I WAS
ASKED TO GIVE YOU AN ANNOUNCEMENT.
COORDINATOR OF THE NETWORK, ARE NOW MEETING AT 2:00 P.M.
