Hot topics in the Animal Sciences – Launch of the South Australian AAAS branch

A new society, the Australian Association of Animal Sciences (AAAS), has been launched in South Australia this week and The President of the South Australian branch, Emeritus Professor of Animal and Veterinary Sciences Dr Phil Hynd, announced “this exciting new development will become the pre-eminent national forum for those involved with animals, as specialists in animal production, nutrition, behaviour, genetics, conservation, research, welfare and management”.

“For the first time we will have a forum which will allow all those involved with animals in Australia to share their passion for, and knowledge across all animal species from wildlife, production animals and companion animals.

To celebrate the launch of the society in South Australia, a lunchtime Webinar series entitled “Hot Topics in the Animal Sciences” will be run by the SA Branch from Monday 14th September to Friday the 18th September from 12 noon to 12.40pm each day.

Everyone involved in animal science and management, from industry professionals, students, and researchers, is invited to participate in this exciting series which will feature key speakers on the latest hot topics in animal sciences including “Covid-Sniffing Dogs”, “Virtual Fencing for sheep and cattle”, “Alternatives to traditional shearing of sheep”, “Alternatives to antibiotics in pig production”, and “Recent Developments in Disease Management in Aquaculture”.

The Friday session will include past graduates of the Animal Sciences sharing their stories and experiences in their careers as wildlife carers, dog trainers, cattle managers, pig industry leaders and research scientists.  This will be a key feature of the new society, linking past graduates, industry leaders, current students and other professional stakeholders in a national and international network of animal scientists, and exposing them to the leading edge developments taking place globally in animal science and management.
