Robin had a fascinating day at the Macdonal & Co Sheep Welfare and Husbandry Seminar — a big day of discussion about the future of on-farm animal welfare in Australia.

This great event featured talks from industry leaders on a range of welfare issues, with a particular focus on pain relief options during lamb marking. If you couldn’t make it along (or if you just want another to see them again!), we’ve got a couple of the talks from the seminar day for you:
