Improve Animal Welfare
Improving farm animal welfare through welfare assessment
We are working with farmers, vets and our inspectors to improve welfare through the use of outcome assessment.
To ensure we are delivering good farm animal welfare we need to be able to measure it. Working with the AssureWel partnership we have developed a widely recognised system of welfare outcome assessment for the major farm animal species. These measures allow us and our farmers to know what level of welfare is being achieved on-farm and provide a basis for any improvements.
