April Keeps CAST Busy

April 6, 2018

CAST invites you to a presentation on Scientific, Ethical, and Economic Aspects of Farm Animal Welfare, cohosted by the Animal Agriculture Alliance. Dr. Candace Croney--Director of Purdue University's Center for Animal Welfare Science and Professor of Animal Behavior and Well-being--will present highlights of the CAST Task Force Report on April 23 in Washington, D.C. The event is free and open to the public.

Farmers across the United States have been using the first week of April to celebrate and recognize the many accomplishments made possible by agronomic experts. These individuals serve a vital role in providing expertise and support for farmers as they strive for a successful growing season and plentiful harvest. During national #AgronomyWeek, CAST remembers the many contributions of Norman Borlaug, an American agronomist and central figure of the Green Revolution.

The rollout for the CAST Issue Paper Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Health Benefits and Dietary Recommendations will be on May 8 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The presentation will be live streamed through social media, and we plan to post the finished video on the website.
