9/9/2020: Thoughts on Animal Welfare

Animal welfare is in the eye of the beholder. In other words, different stakeholders have different perspectives and definitions of animal welfare. In the United States, the consumer is the primary stakeholder driving the dynamics of change in how livestock and poultry are raised. This webinar will cover three topic areas around farm animal welfare. First, we will revisit the influential factors involved in the transformation of animal agriculture and animal welfare assurance. Next, we will cover the fundamentals of animal welfare science and the role of animal welfare science in animal welfare assessments and audits. We will finish up the webinar with a discussion on current regional, national, and international animal welfare assurance programs currently and how they may change in the future.
