CAIRO BOOKS's Description
New legislation on animal welfare standards has created the need for welfare
programmes to be implemented on farms, during transportation, and in slaughter
plants. While there is a wealth of information on animal behaviour, ethics and
factors effecting welfare, there is little to guide veterinarians and managers
in evaluating animal welfare and improving it. This textbook aims to help those
working with animals to apply practical methods for improving welfare, bridging
the gap between scientific research and practical application. Drawing on the
editor's extensive experience in teaching and auditing, and contributions from
international experts, this book provides a guide to practical evaluation and
auditing of welfare problems, emphasizing the importance of measuring
conditions that compromise welfare.It will be an essential text for
veterinarians and veterinary students and welfare auditing or welfare officer
training, and broader animal welfare topics, helping students to apply their
knowledge in the field.
