The annual Purdue Agricultural Alumni Association Fish Fry and Ag Forecast, held Feb. 2 in Indianapolis, was an opportunity for alumni and those in agriculture to renew friendships and interact with experts on the issues of the day.
The topic of this year’s Ag Forecast panel discussion was animal well-being. Karen Plaut, the Purdue College of Agriculture associate dean and director of agricultural research, moderated the discussion and questions from the audience. Panelists were Candace Croney, associate professor of animal sciences; Nicole Olynk Widmar, assistant professor of agricultural economics; and Jeremy Marchant-Forde, research animal scientist in the Purdue-based Livestock Behavior Research Unit of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service.
About 1,500 people attended this year’s Fish Fry. Tom Campbell, managing editor for ConnectionsNOW, documented the day in photos. Use the link above to view the slideshow.
