Excellent meeting. The presence of different scientific communities (nutritionists, pathologists, animal production scientist, biochemists, etc.) was quite interesting and conducive to wide scope analyses.
please, have a look at Santosh Sahu's post. I think you may give some suggestion.

To this I would add that the number of young enthusiastic scientists was very impressive
It was great ! I enjoyed the scientific level, discussions around, fantastic dinner (beef was excellent) and Chris and Sheena hospitality. Very friendly DairyCare group of people. Why did not we take the "official photo" together ?
I wish the English natives understood that we are not natives, especially during discussions.
We slipped up on the photo Maciek, let's do it next time in Cordoba.
Excelent conference! Everything was very well organized, the timings were always accomplished, and the subjects were very interesting. DairyCare group was really friendly also, congrats to all of you!
Will follow up on contact made that can lead to collaboration (of mutual benefit, I hope). T
The success of the conference could be measured by the number of participants but what can not be measured is the effort of the organizers in taking care of each detail and the positive feelings of people being there. I'm happy that the ESR forum is now open!
The Copenhagen Conference was really great!
Now, we've done the warming-up and need to look forward to the next event. As a WG leader, I do need to start collecting YOUR suggestion. Please, GO to the WG forum.
Excellent meeting. Perfectly organized (Congratulation!). Great opportunity for discussion about the same topics with scientist various specializations. Excellent presentations of young researchers. Good company ready for sharing new knowledge and experiences. Very comfortable staying in all WG and in Denmark, as well.
This was my first experience of a conference in Europe. There were several great talks which I enjoyed listening. However, I was expecting a lot from this conference especially about the health of dairy animals. There were several good presentations and posters on welfare but I found the word 'health' missing from this conference. This could have been fulfilled by inviting speakers from this field. Canal cruise was a great social evening.
Santosh has a really good point. How can we address it? It would be good if we could do better than "absence of disease" when we try to define health! Let's have your comments in the WG Forum pages
Santosh, I agree with your point.
What did you expect? More modern 'diagnostic tools'? (New) approaches to follow the evolution of diseases? Tools to asses the recovery from diseases?
Why don't start a new topic in the WG Forum?
I think the meeting was excellently organized in a very nice environment and with many very infomative presentations. The venue was easily accessible which is a prerequisite to get good participation. I kindly ask the organizing committe to consider that aspect before settling for next meeting location.
Regarding content I think risk factors for animal welfare in terms of management and barn onment culd be more focused. From a company perspective this meeting was very rewarding from the sensor point of view. The animal care perspective was however not always that obvious maybe.
Just a comment on the welfare vs health aspect. For me disease is one main component included in the term welfare.
I agree that health is implicit in welfare but I like to consider them separately keeping in mind that also healthy, normaly producing and cycling animals can be in poor welfare conditions if kept in unpropriate conditions and experiecing distress/fear
Excellent meeting. I especially liked the open-minded and sharing atmosphere. It is when people really invite each other to cooperation and are willing to share data and help spreading new methods that we move science forward.
