The Livestock Welfare Engagement Project survey is now available online. Facilitated by Alberta Farm Animal Care (AFAC) this collaborative project aims to support an accurate understanding of the animal welfare landscape in the province from the livestock industry's perspective.
“Livestock welfare is important to all industry stakeholders as well as the bodies that regulate the sector, and practices continue to change and evolve. This project will provide every stakeholder – from individual farmers and ranchers to producer association groups, veterinarians and all others – the opportunity to share their insight into what is happening in their sector today,” says Annemarie Pedersen, executive director of AFAC. “These diverse insights will be critical in creating a clear picture of the extensive work being done related to animal welfare in Alberta today, and in providing direction for the future.”
The Livestock Welfare Engagement Project survey is open to anyone in Alberta who is involved in animal agriculture. Survey participants who fall under more than one category are welcome to complete multiple surveys. Alberta Agriculture and Forestry requested and provided funding for the project. The survey closes October 31, 2018.Source : Alberta agriculture and forestry
