Dear Veetelers, 

Our last evening of animal welfare in slaughterhouses was a great success. After this evening, a lot of things happened. With the current restrictions, we are able to organize a physical activity again! This evening will be aimed towards antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem, and it is expected to be the number 1 cause of human death by 2050. Since animal production chains have to act responsibly, it is the reason that we want to organize an evening on this subject. It is a topic which is always up for a nice discussion, so we hope to see you here. 

Wednesday 2nd of December we will be able to physically host 3 great guest speakers: 

  • Joost van den Borne, Manager R&D MS Schippers & Associate professor HAS University of Applied Sciences. Mr. Van den Borne did his MSc Animal Sciences and his PhD at Wageningen University. In his career, he also worked as an assistant professor at Wageningen University and as senior Scientist at FrieslandCampina. In his current role, he will provide insights in hygiene and biosecurity aspects of this topic. 


  • Leo den Hartog, Director R&D and Quality affairs at Nutreco. In addition, he is a part- time professor in Animal Nutrition in Circular Economy at Wageningen University. Den Hartog’s extensive experience in animal production is reflected in over 450 scientific and applied articles and seven books as author or co-author. During our discussion evening he will elaborate on this topic from an animal nutrition perspective.  


  • Rinse Jan Boersma, Global Marketing Director Dairy Cattle at Bayer Animal Health. Within Mr. Boersma’s international career, he has held numerous positions within global animal health companies as a strategic marketeer. Rinse grew up with a dairy background and has pursued his interest in both his education and work. He received a master’s degree on Animal Nutrition from Wageningen University (NL). On our evening Rinse will elaborate on antibiotics from a veterinary perspective.
