The issues in farm animal welfare continue to be hotly debated across the United States, and recently Ohio's farm animal production practices have come under scrutiny. On October 16, a symposium on animal welfare being held at The Ohio State University will offer perspectives that are grounded in science and education.
Faculty, staff and students rode, raised money and volunteered with the inaugural 2009 Pelotonia bike tour. Pelotonia is an annual grass roots bike tour with the goal of raising money for innovative and life saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Riders could choose from one day routes of 25 miles, 50 miles or 100 miles; or the two-day trek of 180 miles.
Molly the Pony, one of the world's only prosthesis-wearing ponies, visited the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine August 6 from 4:00 to 8 p.m. Visitors had the chance to hear the presentation "It's All About Molly" at 5 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. in the Wexner Auditorium in the Veterinary Medicine Academic Building (VMAB) by Dr. Rustin Moore, Bud and Marilyn Jenne Professor and chair of the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences. Molly was on the lawn outside for visitors to meet her and her owner, Kaye Harris, before and after Dr. Moore's presentation.
