Since July 2020, FECTU has been promoting a monthly webinar, covering different
topics focused on health and welfare of working animals, but also on different uses
in all kinds of activities. These webinars will continue in 2021 and are included in
the continuous training programme, as a way to share knowledge and bring
together professionals from different areas, having in common the passion for
animal traction and working animals.
As a result, FECTU has launched the new YouTube
channel, where all the webinars will be available. We hope you will enjoy the
content of this channel!
