    Has anyone read any interesting articles written within the past year that depict any topic regarding the health and/or welfare of companion animals or livestock? I have to decide a topic today for an informal presentation in a month or two. I was hoping to speak on the topic of the recent Supreme Court Case concerning drug sniffing dogs, but my professor vetoed the idea because it would be a stretch to somehow connect that to animal health or welfare.

    Ideas? I have one in mind, but it's a scientific article and I think I'd rather speak on an article from the popular press if possible just because I would worry less about not being able to answer questions posed to me (i.e knowing the essence of the article, but not 100% of the science behind it and then getting posed a specific question that is above me).

    Articles? I looked in the 'news' section of the forum, but it's a pretty slow area and there aren't any new articles that fit the bill and interest me.

    I need to present it in 6-8 minutes, so nothing too broad to cover in that range, but large enough that I can talk about substance for the time needed.

    Thanks!

    For livestock if its just informative you can talk about cows and waterbeds. I've read some articles on that in the past.

    Can talk about the use of meds in livestock. Can hit on us sending horses to slaughter with wormer etc.

    The use of the word organic and free range when that may just mean moving a small chicken box around the yard no nicer than where they would be normally.

    Trap and release would be another one.

    Thanks guys! I tried to use the early spay/neuter one but it was already claimed by another student, so I decided to present on raw food diets in dogs instead. You helped me get on a good train of thought!
