Donkey Welfare Symposium

The 2016 Donkey Welfare Symposium is being held at Cornell university in Ithaca, NY this year.  I am planning on attending.  Who else is going?


  1. You'll be attending all the Vet talks, right? Although the lay person's talks look fun too!

    1. I'm going as long as they let me into the vet talks. The others are excellent, but mostly a repeat of last year's. It should be fun though. Do you want to join me? I'm sure we could find a bed for you.

  2. Glad you are going and we expect to to hear all the highlights! They moved it from UC Davis so it is good the information is expanding to a wider audience. I participated in the webinar the past two symposiums but it's not the same as seeing the demonstrations and the experts work with the donkeys. Have fun!

  3. OUTSTANDING! Full report expected :-)

  4. I'm with Mel- I ant to hear all about it.

  5. I'll be going. I'm in California (not too far from Davis) and I've been thrilled to attend them at UCD. Anyone can do the lectures in either the vet or owner tracks and it's generally easy to jump back and forth depending on least that's the way they've always done it at UCD. I'm thrilled they're moving it to Cornell this year. Hopefully it expands donkey knowledge and experience.
