COMMUNICATING WITH SOCIETY – THE SOCIAL DEBATE ABOUT LIVESTOCK FARMING (2 HOURS)

Learning outcome: Veterinarians communicate not only with farmers, but also with a public, that knows little about livestock husbandry, but at the same time has increasing expectations – especially with regard to animal welfare. On basis of the questionnaire the students worked with during the farm visit, the workshop will discuss: What expectations does the current society have towards livestock farming? Why is communication about agriculture so difficult? Further, this session will also discuss typical “faulty” arguments in the social debate about livestock farming and veterinary medicine.
