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.
