ADDRESSING CONSUMER CONCERNS: ANIMAL WELFARE AND THE SWINE INDUSTRY

Posted in: Pork Insight Articles, Welfare by PSCI on July 6, 2017


The scientific understanding and measurement of animal welfare is no longer limited to production parameters but also includes the physical, environmental, nutritional, behavioral and social needs of the animal or groups of animals under the care, supervision or influence of people. Addressing these needs should decrease stress (a good thing for animals) and improve performance (a good thing for producers.)

The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of some of the recent programs that have been developed in the United States to provide public assurance about animal welfare .
