The Challenge of Improving Transport Animal Welfare in the World: Ways Forward

 
The 2003 TAWS workshop was held on Thursday, 24th April, 2003 at Silsoe Research Institute, Wrest Park, Silsoe. The workshop aimed to bring together a wide range of people concerned with working animals and their welfare. It provided a stimulating and conducive environment to exchange ideas and information, and propose new initiatives and actions in this important field.
