Keelbone damage lecture for poultry producers in Slovakia

On Tuesday, November 27th, annual seminar of the Union of the Slovak Poultry Producers took place at the foot of High Tatra mountains in the Grand Hotel Permon, Podbanské, Slovakia. Among other international and Slovak speakers, dr. Michael Toscano from the University of Bern, Switzerland, gave invited talk about “Keelbone damage in laying hens – consequences for welfare and economics”. With interpretation helped another COST action member, dr. Ľubor Koštál from the Centre of Biosciences, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovakia. The talk elicited discussion and we believe that it will also help to establish valuable contacts for future collaboration.
