The theme of the 3 rd NAHWOA Workshop was Human-animal relationship: stockmanship and housing in organic livestock systems . The stockperson s ability to understand livestock and to respond to the needs of the domesticated animals is probably the most important building block of animal health and welfare in any livestock production system. It is clear, from the papers presented in the Workshop, that great demands are put on the herdsperson's, shepherd's or flockmaster's ability to adopt new techniques and approaches to husbandry, when a livestock unit converts from intensive, conventional management to organic production system. The importance of stockmanship was notably emphasised also by all presentations discussing housing. These Proceedings include two reports of the discussions from the Workshop and a few papers presented on ongoing research among the NAHWOA partners. It is hoped that the publication of such papers will encourage and inspire research collaboration in the future. In these Proceedings, are also included abstracts from posters presented both in the ClermontFerrand Workshop and in the previous Workshop in Cordoba.
