Speaker: Michael Rosmann

How behaviour affects farming and how farming affects human behaviour are becoming better understood. The behavioural health of agricultural producers is a significant factor in the success of agricultural operations; the behavioural well-being of employers and employees is recognized as important to good management practices. Similarly, the behavioural well-being of animals being raised to produce food or as food impacts their efficiency and likewise affects the people who care for them. This presentation reviews research and ethics advances in animal and human psychosocial factors that impact agriculture, new directions for exploration and offers a nod to plant behaviour.
