On May the 10th I had the pleasure of attending the Campbell Centre for the Study of Animal Welfare Research Symposium. One presentation in particular that caught my attention was the first presentation on robotic milking.
Initially, I thought the presentation would be about the detriments of mechanization to animal welfare, as this is usually the trend when we are talking about animal care. Especially in factory farming and so on, in which, when the human contact is limited it allows the propagation of cruelty and inhumane conditions.
