What constitutes food animal well-being? Which practices benefit welfare, and which indicators are most suitable for gauging animal welfare on your farm? We’ll consider recommendations in the context of on-farm realities such as labor and cost, plus explore key consumer concerns and a few of the issues most frequently encountered by livestock producers when pursuing welfare certification. Learn to identify synergies among food animal welfare, health, and productivity for flexible, sustainable advancement of welfare in your organic management system.
