On Sep 12-14, 2014, the Workshop on Animal Environment and Welfare was held successfully in Haerbin at Qilu International Hotel. There were about 20 experts from USA, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands and China in attendance. It was hosted by the Northeast Agricultural University.

At the opening ceremony, Dr. Jun Bao , president of Northeast Agricultural University delivered the welcome speech on behalf of his university. Dr. Zuohua Liu, president of Chongqing Academy of Animal Sciences gave speech on behalf of the academy and the Center’s Secretary Department, extending his sincere appreciation and gratitude to the host, reviewing the significance of holding the international symposia since 2011, and pointing out the importance of collecting the project proposals/ideas among the board members which will further enhance the impact of the center.
After the opening ceremony, experts (including two special invited speakers – Dr. Heekwon Ahn of Chungnam National University, Korea and Dr. Hongmin Dong of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences) presented the advancements in the related research areas, including environmentally sound disposal of swine mortality, current situation of animal welfare in China, application of biofilters to reduce air (odor) emissions, air quality and ventilation control, Precision Livestock Farming (PLF), animal manure treatment, alternative animal housing types, et al. These presentations provided a nice review on the state-of-the-science, current progress and future directions in animal environment and welfare.
On the second day, Co-chair Hongwei Xin presided over the board meeting. President Liu introduced the plan to hold the 2015 International Symposium on Animal Environment and Welfare (ISAEW 2015), update and renewal of the IRCAEW website, and the potential project cooperation opportunities within the center. Next, the board members who had submitted brief research proposals each elaborated their ideas, and some exchanged their willingness to cooperate in the near future. Finally, the board approved Dr. Lingying Zhao, associate professor, of the Ohio State University to join the IRCAEW Board.
It’s the first time for the center to hold its workshop successfully outside Rongchang, Chongqing – the Center’s headquarter. It demonstrates that the center’s operation is evolving into it “routine”, and its global impact continues to grow.
