Seventh Annual Donkey Welfare Symposium

  • UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine 1 Shields Ave. Davis, CA 95616 USA (map)

Dear Donkey and Mule Enthusiast,

As an equine enthusiast you might be interested in the Donkey Welfare Symposium, which will be held at the UC Davis Conference Center and Animal Science Horse Barn Arena, September 13-15, 2019. Now in its seventh year, the Donkey Welfare Symposium brings veterinarians, donkey trainers, farriers, and scientists from all over the world to Davis for the purpose of improving the knowledge of donkey health and husbandry. We also discuss controversies, such as the wild donkeys on federal lands in the USA or the donkey skin trade in China. Everybody and their opinions are welcome. You will learn from the real expert’s lectures, and skilled farriers and trainers demonstrations. Then during the social activities (registration includes wine tasting and dinners Friday and Saturday night) you can meet the faculty, one on one. To look at the topics and schedule, and to register, go to and on Facebook.

So, I invite you to come to Davis in September, support donkey welfare, learn, and have a good time.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Eric Davis DVM and Amy McLean, PhD
