Chick Olsson, Co-Founder, Communication and Business Development Director of Medical Ethics talks passionately about farmers driving animal welfare at the Rural Press Club’s National Agriculture Day 0n 21 November 2018 (Tattersalls Club, Brisbane, Australia).
Jason Purcell of Consolidated Pastoral Company talks about how productivity and profit are directly linked to improving animal welfare, in that settled animals that are treated with respect and are happy and comfortable in their environment perform better. CPC use Medical Ethics’ Tri-Solfen® when performing branding, dehorning and castration, and their own research has shown that the calves recover quicker and are back on their feet straight away and reunited with their mothers meaning the calves are in less pain and less stressed.
Professor George Stilwell of Lisbon University talks about the effectiveness of Tri-Solfen® and in particular the advantages of pain relief for animals undergoing surgical procedures making the animals easier to manage.
Shonnay Smith, a horse stud farm owner in Queensland, Australia and her vet, Andrew Marland discuss the advantages of using the Medical Ethics Tri-Solfen® product for horses. In the example shown, a wounded horse not used to being handled is treated with Tri-Solfen® instead of the usual bandaging procedure with impressive results.
Guido Bianco, Chief Health Officer of the Citterio Salami Factory in Italy, talks about the company’s animal welfare standards and how they studied the results of the Medical Ethics’ product, Tri-Solfen®, in their pursuit of eliminating animal pain.
