Animal welfare science is the scientific study of the welfare of animals as pets, in zoos, laboratories, on farms and in the wild. Although animal welfare has been of great concern for many thousands of years in religion and culture, the investigation of animal welfare using rigorous scientific methods is a relatively recent development. The worlds first Professor of Animal Welfare Science, Donald Broom, was appointed by Cambridge University (UK) in 1986. Early legislation which formed the impetus for assessing animal welfare and the subsequent development of animal welfare science include the Ireland Parliament (Thomas Wentworth) An Act against Plowing by the Tayle, and pulling the Wooll off living Sheep, 1635, and the Massachusetts Colony (Nathaniel Ward) Off the Bruite Creatures Liberty 92 and 93 in the Massachusetts Body of Liberties of 1641. Richard Martins act, the Cruel Treatment of Cattle Act 1822 is often considered to be the precursor of modern relevant legislation. One of ...
Animal welfare and rights in India regards the treatment of and laws concerning non-human animals in India. It is distinct from animal conservation in India. India is home to several religious traditions advocating non-violence and compassion towards animals, and has passed a number of animal welfare reforms since 1960. India is also one of the worlds leading producers of animal products. Indias first national animal welfare law, the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, criminalizes cruelty to animals, though exceptions are made for the treatment of animals used for food and scientific experiments. The 1960 law also created the Animal Welfare Board of India to ensure the anti-cruelty provisions were enforced and promote the cause of animal welfare. Subsequent laws have placed regulations and restrictions on the use of draught animals, the use of performing animals, animal transport, animal slaughter, and animal experimentation. The Breeding of and Experiments on Animals (Control and ...
Introduction. The ethical analysis of our moral obligations to animals, as well as practical decisions regarding many issues in veterinary medicine, both presuppose some account of animal welfare - that is, of what makes an animals life go well or poorly. Therefore, it is essential that we think critically about the concept of animal welfare. This paper briefly explores some philosophical issues in the definition and assessment of animal welfare.. Two Different Senses of Animal Welfare. The first thing to clarify is the way in which Im using the term animal welfare. In both moral philosophy and ordinary language (as concerns humans), the term welfare is roughly synonymous with wellbeing. To say that an individual has a welfare is to say that her life can go better or worse from her perspective, and to talk about her welfare is to talk about her interests - what are the things that make her life go better or worse for her? How should we conceptualize her wellbeing in the abstract? ...
Information about animal welfare standards and initiatives from eight European countries was collected, grouped, and compared to EU welfare standards to detect those aspects beyond minimum welfare levels demanded by EU welfare legislation. Literature was reviewed to determine the scientific relevance of standards and initiatives, and those aspects going beyond minimum EU standards. Standards and initiatives were assessed to determine their strengths and weaknesses regarding animal welfare. Attitudes of stakeholders in the improvement of animal welfare were determined through a Policy Delphi exercise. Social perception of animal welfare, economic implications of upraising welfare levels, and differences between countries were considered. Literature review revealed that on-farm space allowance, climate control, and environmental enrichment are relevant for all animal categories. Experts assessment revealed that on-farm prevention of thermal stress, air quality, and races and passageways design were not

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published pioneering guidelines laying out, for the first time, a standardised methodology for the risk assessment of animal welfare. The methodology, which follows a step-by-step approach, is designed to be applicable to all animal species and all factors that affect animal welfare, including housing, transport, stunning and killing. The development of the guidelines supports EFSAs commitment to ensure that all its work on animal welfare is underpinned by a strong scientific approach.

In a country where animal welfare services are entirely dependent on public donations and good will, Cape Town is the first ever city in South Africa to provide grants to support dog and cat sterilisation.. Marking the 20th anniversary of World Spay Day, Mdzananda Animal Clinic - a project of IFAW - joined animal welfare groups across the city last week, Tuesday 25th February, in rolling out Cape Towns second dog and cat mass sterilisation project.. In the next six months a massive grant of R527 999 from the City Health Directorate will be used to, hopefully, sterilise 70 per cent of dogs and cats in Khayelitsha township on the Cape Flats.. Also on IFAW.org: CLAW South Africa find themselves refugees, for the moment. Mdzananda is based in Site B, Khayelitsha.

Progressive animal production methods must deliver high quality meat to the consumer, while at the same time promote the welfare of farmed animals. The literature on animal welfare has expanded immensely over recent years, but until now no book has related this area to that of meat science. This book aims to fill that gap. It provides a general review of current knowledge of the welfare of farmed animals, including fish, as this impacts upon meat quality. It represents a textbook for graduate level courses in animal welfare or meat science, but will also be of interest to a wide range of readers in animal, veterinary and food sciences, and in applied ethology.
Members: Dr. David Burrows, Dr. Shevaun Gallwey and Dr. Karthi Martelli. Meets on a project basis and may incorporate additional members on an ad hoc basis. Aims: To promote an understanding of animal welfare in the region and to provide advice to HKVA members, the public and the Government on any matter relating to animal welfare. As veterinary surgeons our primary responsibility is the welfare and care of animals across the species and it was thought to be important that the views of the profession as experts in this field should be expressed and that good animal welfare be promoted by the HKVA. This will be particularly important as the Government is currently undertaking a review of laws that will have a direct impact on animal welfare and the HKVA should be consulted on such matters.

The purpose of this review is to present the best available scientific knowledge on key animal welfare issues during swine transport, such as transport duration and distance, time off feed and water, rest intervals, environmental conditions, loading density, and transport of young animals, based on their impact on stress, injury, fatigue, dehydration, body temperature, mortality, and carcass and meat quality. The review was limited to this set of priority welfare issues which were identified by the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) Scientific Committee to help with the development of the livestock transportation Codes of Practice. This review focuses primarily on research related to the transport of market pigs (100-135 kg) which is a reflection of the current literature available on pig transportation. This information presented here can be used to support other animal welfare codes, guidelines, standards or legislations regulating the welfare of pigs during transport. Based on the available
Animal welfare is about quality of life. An animal feels most comfortable in an environment that allows it to express its natural behaviour and does not cause any chronic stress, pain or fear. Feed, care, housing and medical treatments all influence the welfare of agricultural animals. Animal welfare is judged using the five freedoms. An animal should be free: of hunger, thirst and inappropriate nutrition; of physical and physiological inconveniences; of pain, wounds and diseases; of fear and chronic stress; to express its natural (species-specific) behaviour. Wageningen UR is looking at ways to guarantee these freedoms in animal husbandry.
Humane endpoints are a core refinement concept in animal experimentation. This paper identifies an urgent requirement for individuals and institutions to refocus on humane endpoints as part of the transposition of Directive 2010/63/EU into the national laws of the Member States, and to go beyond their legal construction when setting new guidance or applying humane endpoints in practice. It will be argued that requirements for humane endpoints within the Directive appear not to promote recent advances in best practice, but seem reliant on a narrow and potentially outdated definition of the term. We describe progress that has been made in encouraging change in the construction and application of humane endpoints, and suggest that Directive 2010/63/EU does not sufficiently acknowledge the conceptual complexity of this refinement strategy. For example, a useful development representing recent consensual views of best practice has been proposed by an EU consortium (in 2012). A complex approach to ...
They found that practices in the area of outdoor access, stocking density and day-night rhythm were overall perceived to have a larger impact on perceptions of animal friendliness than other practices, such as transport duration or the type of breed used.. Individuals differed regarding the extent to which they believed the different farm management practices influenced the animal friendliness of the production system. Differences between individuals regarding their knowledge about and familiarity with livestock farming, degree of anthropomorphism, and their moral beliefs regarding animal welfare partly explained the relative importance individuals attached to farm management practices.. The findings highlight some interesting differences between expert (i.e. animal science-based) and consumer perceptions of animal welfare, remark de Jonge and van Trijp in their discussion. For example, the type of breed that is used is seen by animal scientists as one of the most important factors that ...

California processor Central Valley Meat Co. is the subject of a recent Internet animal cruelty video released by anti-meat organization, Compassion over Killing. The video captured instances of inhumane handling practices that are not condoned by the beef and cattle industry or the Canadian Cattlemens Association (CCA). The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) suspended operations at the company pending investigation of the animal welfare issues cited in the video. The plant reopened after federal officials approved corrective action plans to improve the treatment of animals. As a result of the video, major customers, including McDonalds Corp., cancelled or suspended contracts with the company. These types of undercover videos, typically taken by activists with an ordinary cellphone, draw attention to animal welfare issues. Their underlying motivation in exposing such acts is not to improve animal agriculture; but to end it by falsely portraying inhumane practices as the industry ...
Historically, animal welfare has been defined by the absence of negative states such as disease, hunger and thirst. However, a shift in animal welfare science has led to the understanding that good animal welfare cannot be achieved without the experience of positive states. Unequivocally, the housing environment has significant impacts on animal welfare. This review summarises how cage and cage-free housing systems impact some of the key welfare issues for layer hens: musculoskeletal health, disease, severe feather pecking, and behavioural expression. Welfare in cage-free systems is currently highly variable, and needs to be addressed by management practices, genetic selection, further research, and appropriate design and maintenance of the housing environment. Conventional cages lack adequate space for movement, and do not include features to allow behavioural expression. Hens therefore experience extreme behavioural restriction, musculoskeletal weakness and an inability to experience positive ...
To help veterinarians and the general public understand the complexity and passion behind animal welfare issues, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has launched its
CCTV is to become mandatory in all slaughterhouses in England under plans to safeguard animal welfare and reassure consumers. Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the proposals would cement the UKs position as a global leader on animal welfare by giving the Food Standards Agencys official veterinarians - those who monitor and enforce standards - unrestricted access to footage of all areas containing livestock.. Any breaches by a slaughterhouse can result in a welfare enforcement notice, the suspending or revoking of staff licences or referral for a criminal investigation.. The Government also said it would raise standards for farm animals and domestic pets by updating statutory animal welfare codes to reflect advancements in medicine, technology and the latest research and advice from vets. The first to be updated will cover chickens bred for meat, followed by laying hens, pigs, dogs, cats and horses over the next year.. Mr Gove said: We have some of the highest animal welfare standards ...
Reduction of animal suffering during in vivo experiments is usually ensured by continuously monitoring the health status using a score sheet and by applying humane endpoints. However, most studies do not evaluate the plausibility of score sheets and do not attempt to reduce the suffering of animals by determining earlier and, therefore, more humane endpoints. The present study uses data from BALB/cANCrl mice after bile duct ligation to retrospectively analyze which score sheet criteria are informative to determine humane endpoints. The performance of each single as well as com-binations of multiple animal welfare parameters was analyzed by a Cox proportional-hazards model followed by Harrells concordance index. The addition of behavioral parameters, such as burrowing activity, helped to define a more humane early endpoint for euthanizing these animals. Using this approach, we determined that a body weight loss of 10-20% combined with a reduction of burrowing activity by more than 79.4% was able ...
No person reporting an animal welfare concern in good-faith will be subject to retaliation according to the Animal Welfare Act and the University of Iowa Operations Manuals Anti-Retaliation Policy. The humane care and use of animals is of paramount importance to the University of Iowa. Individuals who have specific concerns about the treatment of animals, including animal husbandry concerns, should report their observations to the Chair or Director of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) for investigation.
III. WILDLIFE CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENTWildlife management may be thought a contradiction in terms. The logic of wild precludes managed. Wildlife lived for millions of years, unmanaged by humans. Part of what humans value in wildlife is animals that can look out for themselves. Wildlife that is managed is not wild; it is managed life. So there is logical difficulty in the idea. There is also ethical difficulty. Perhaps humans are not responsible for wildlife; wild lives are on their own. But then again, human activities affect wildlife quite adversely.

As public awareness of environmental issues and animal welfare has risen, catering to public concerns and views on these issues has become a potentially profitable strategy for marketing a number of product types, of which animal products such as dairy and meat are obvious examples. Our analysis suggests that specific marketing instruments are used to sell animal products by blurring the difference between the paradigms of animal welfare used by producers, and the paradigms of animal welfare as perceived by the (...) public. These instruments rely on ethical, political and sustainable consumption discourses in order to sell one image of animal welfare in intensive animal production while the actual production at the same time presupposes a quite different paradigm of animal welfare. Specifically, product advertising utilizes representations tied to concepts of naturalness in depictions of both animal lives and product processes as natural. Product marketing suggests a coherence between nature, ...
The key animal welfare issues in dairy production relate to bobby calves, cow-calf separation and painful procedures or conditions.. In order to produce milk, cows must give birth to a calf. Male calves are generally considered a low-value waste product by the industry and are usually slaughtered at five days of age. The RSPCA is concerned about the potential for poor treatment of these bobby calves on farm, during transport and at slaughter.. Calves are separated from their mothers within 24 hours of birth, mainly to reduce the risk of disease in the calf and to ensure the calf is fed adequate colostrum. Cow-calf separation is a practice which is stressful for both cow and calf.. In addition, the removal of horns from calves without pain relief or anaesthetic, lameness and mastitis in cows, and the live export of dairy cattle for breeding purposes, all pose animal welfare concerns.. For dairy cows to have a good life, they need to be healthy and well fed, be protected from weather extremes, ...

By Brad Heins, WCROC Dairy Scientist, Cassandra Stambuk, and Heather Huson. May 2020. Improvements in animal welfare are a priority for animal agriculture and can benefit both animals and producers. There is a growing concern for the well-being of animals in response to the demand of consumers for welfare-certified products. Lameness is a major animal welfare and economic issue for the dairy industry and is a challenge to overcome due to lameness being caused by many factors. Lameness challenges the sustainability of dairy production systems due to the pain and ensuing animal welfare issues, along with significant economic losses. Digital cushion thickness is a strong predictor of lameness and is associated with sole ulcers and white line disease. In a recently completed study, we collected lameness information and digital cushion thickness from seven commercial dairy farms (5 Holstein farms and 2 Jersey farms) and one bull facility (Holstein and Jersey) in New York, USA. The study included 698 ...

Inter-observer reliability was assessed using Fleisss kappa (κ), and the pair-wise agreement with an experienced, observer designated as the test standard observer (TSO) was examined using Cohens ...
Aggression in group-housed laboratory mice is a serious animal welfare concern. Further understanding of the causes of mouse aggression could have a significant impact on a large number of laboratory animals. The NC3Rs led a crowdsourcing project to collect data on the prevalence and potential triggers of aggression in laboratory mice. The crowdsourcing approach collected data from multiple institutions and is the first time such an approach has been applied to a laboratory animal welfare problem. Technicians observed group-housed, male mice during daily routine cage checks and recorded all incidents of aggression-related injuries. In total, 44 facilities participated in the study and data was collected by 143 animal technicians. A total of 788 incidents of aggression-related injuries were reported across a sample population of 137,580 mice. The mean facility-level prevalence of aggression-related incidents reported across facilities was equivalent to 15 in 1,000 mice. Key factors influencing the

In the past decade, philosopher Bernard Rollin points out, we have witnessed a major revolution in social concern with animal welfare and the moral status of animals. Adopting the stance of a moderate, Harold Guither attempts to provide an unbiased examination of the paths and goals of the members of the animal rights movement and of its detractors. Given the level of confusion, suspicion, misunderstanding, and mistrust between the two sides, Guither admits the difficulty in locating, much less staying in, the middle of the road. The philosophical conflict, however, is fairly clear: those who resist reform, fearing that radical change in the treatment of animals will infringe on their business and property rights, versus the new activists who espouse a different set of moral and ethical obligations toward animals. From his position as a moderate, Guither presents a brief history of animal protection and the emergence of animal rights, describes the scope of the movement, and identifies major players

WASHINGTON, Dec. 28, 2012--The U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is taking public comments on the Agencys intention to use the 2010 Guidelines for the Control of Tuberculosis in Elephants, issued by the United States Animal Health Association (USAHA), to assess whether or not USDA licensees are adhering to the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) regulations and providing their elephants with adequate veterinary care with respect to tuberculosis (TB), TB testing and elephant movement.. Ensuring that elephants covered under the Animal Welfare Act are receiving adequate veterinary care and protecting those individuals and members of the public who may come in contact with these animals is a top priority, said APHIS Acting Administrator Kevin Shea. APHIS has long used USAHA guidelines on TB testing and elephant movement and we are seeking comment on how best to incorporate the 2010 guidance into our enforcement.. TB is ...
A recent press release from The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) explains:. This program will save hundreds of thousands of lives-both dogs and humans, said Kate Atema, IFAW Director of Companion Animals Programs.. IFAW is supporting the initiative which is being led by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), working with the Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) and also using the expertise of IFAWs Bali-based team, Indonesian Animal Welfare (InAW). No longer will dogs be randomly killed following an outbreak of rabies, said Atema. This is a vital first step towards eliminating the disease from Bali by 2012. The government should be commended for embracing vaccination as a more effective and humane approach to controlling rabies.. In order to control rabies across the island, the vaccination program must roll out rapidly. The program aims to vaccinate at least 70% of the islands dogs within six months by simultaneously deploying up to 12 teams of 8 to 10 ...

The act of animal cruelty was caught on video and caused an uproar among animal welfare advocates. PAWS reiterated that animal cruelty and pet neglect are criminal offenses. Animal cruelty is a crime punishable by imprisonment and/or a fine of up to P100,000. The animal welfare group urged the public to intervene if they encounter animal cruelty or pet neglect to prevent from further endangering them.. If one encounters pet neglect, it recommended trying the friendly approach and educating the pet owner on responsible pet ownership. If nothing changes and the behavior continues, be prepared to present proof such as a series of photos or videos that consistently show a pattern of neglect, along with your detailed report.. These will be used with your witness affidavit when filing the case. This is the only time that PAWS or the authorities can confiscate the neglected pet, it said.. If one witnesses animal cruelty, such as dog katay (butcher) or selling and buying dogs for meat trade, or ...
Society for the Advancement of Animal Wellbeing - Pigs - Society for the Advancement of Animal Wellbeing is a organization that works for the promotion of animal rights and welfare worldwide. We believe animals should be respected and not exploited.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has set forth federal regulations governing the care and use of laboratory animals in biomedical research that are more extensive than those covering human subjects. The federal law called the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) sets high standards of care for lab animals with regard to their housing, feeding, cleanliness, ventilation and medical needs. It also requires the use of anesthesia or analgesic drugs for potentially painful procedures and during post-operative care. Most importantly, research institutions are required - by law - to establish an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to oversee all work with animals. The IACUCs require researchers to justify their need for animals; select the most appropriate species and use the fewest number of animals possible to answer a specific question. All IACUCs include at least one veterinarian and one community representative, unaffiliated with the institution. These committees have the authority to ...

Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day. Founded to offset centuries-old superstitions about black cats, this is an important holiday to highlight that its not just dogs that face discrimination based upon uncontrollable factors.. The responsible pet trade and our pet care allies at shelters know that breed-specific legislation is not scientifically based. Likewise, the high rate of abandoned or sheltered black cats is problematic for shelters and cats alike, putting resources towards pets that are just as lovable as any other.. PIJAC works closely with pet trade associations and like-minded organizations throughout the world to ensure positive outcomes for animal welfare issues, pet owner concerns, and the interests of pet professionals. It is the responsibility of the entire pet community to ensure the safety of companion animals in our country and find them a forever home.. Fighting against superstitious-based discrimination is an important step in that process. ...
|jats:p|Mastitis in dairy cows is a significant economic and animal welfare issue in the dairy industry. The bacterial pathogens responsible for infection of the mammary gland may be split into two main categories: major and minor pathogens. Infection with major pathogens generally results in clinical illness or strong inflammatory responses and reduced milk yields, whereas minor pathogen infection is usually subclinical. Previous investigations have considered the transmission of these pathogens independently. Experimental evidence has shown cross-protection between species of pathogens. In this study a mathematical model for the coupled transmission of major and minor pathogens along with their interaction via the host was developed in order to consider various methods for controlling the incidence of major pathogen infection. A stability analysis of the model equilibria provides explanations for observed phenomena and previous decoupled modelling results. This multispecies model structure has
The 24th Red Deer Swine Technology Workshop took place on October 23, 2019 at Westerner Park in Red Deer. More than 150 guests-primarily producers and their barn workers-attended eight presentations and networked with more than a dozen exhibitors.. Every year, Swine Tech includes premier speakers covering a wide variety of topics relevant to pork production, said Alistair Bratton of Olymel, who serves as Chair of the Swine Tech committee. Knowledge transfer is the goal, and by involving those on the front-line of production, we are able to connect the people who handle pigs with those who are heavily involved with research, specifically..

The rule is a victory for animal rights groups two days before President Barack Obama leaves office. The regulations will ensure that organically grown livestock have enough space to lie down, turn around, stand up and fully stretch their limbs. Poultry will have enough room to move freely and spread their wings. Beaks cant be removed and cattle tails cant be cut. Living conditions will have to include fresh air, proper ventilation and direct sunlight. ...
The science and technology program committees of the Pork Checkoff have finished the review of research proposals scheduled for the year 2006. On February 16-17, the Animal Welfare Committee, Swine Health Committee, Pork Safety Committee, and Environment Committee held meetings to discuss all proposals received from earlier calls for research proposals. The Animal Science Committee met at a later date. The Animal Welfare Committee put out a call for proposals with a deadline of December 14, 2005. Research priorities for the 2006 call were sow gestation housing, handling and transport, on-farm euthanasia, production practices, and farrowing systems. Thirteen proposals were received, of which four have been reviewed for funding.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Survey-based welfare indicators can fluctuate over time in ways which have little to do with macroeconomic changes in the economy. So basing policy decisions on short-term movements in such welfare indicators can be hazardous. There was a sharp increase in Indias poverty measures in the aftermath of the mid-1991 crisis and the ensuing stabilization program. However, only one-tenth of the increase in measured poverty is explicable in terms of the variables one would expect to transmit the shock to poor people. Poverty measures soon returned to their pre-reform levels, belying the notion of a structural break induced by reforms. Copyright 1997 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
Downloadable! The number of breeds of domesticated animals, especially livestock, have declined rapidly. The proximate causes and processes involved in loss of breeds are outlined. Also the path-dependent effect and Swansons dominance-effect are discussed in relation to lock-in of breed selection. While these effects help to explain genetic erosion, they need to be supplemented to provide further explanation of biodiversity loss. In the respect, it is shown that the extension of markets and economic globalisation have contributed significantly to the loss of breeds. In addition, the decoupling of animal husbandry from surrounding natural environmental conditions, particularly industrialised intensive animal husbandry, is further eroding the stock of genetic resources. Recent trends in animal husbandry raise serious sustainability issues, apart from animal welfare concerns.
The CCSPCA has a solid reputation for delivering progressive and innovative programs to rehabilitate and re-home stray and abused animals, which is a population of animals with a unique set of needs, says Hetti Brown, director of the Office of Animal Welfare.. The organization also prevents animal homelessness through pet owner counseling and the delivery of compassionate resources. This is the key to ensuring every healthy and treatable animal has a home in Delaware.. The Chester County SPCA is the only open admission shelter in Pennsylvania that does not euthanize healthy or treatable animals, according to Delaware Office of Animal Welfare.. Under the new agreement, stray animals will be housed in Delaware so owners have a chance to recover pets. Animals that are not recovered, or animals that are the victims of animal cruelty, will be placed into the rehabilitation or adoption programs at the Chester County SPCAs New Castle location, or transferred to a Delaware-based shelter or rescue ...
NEW YORK- A coalition of animal welfare, consumer safety, and worker rights organizations announced today that more than 82,000 concerned members of the public, workers and allies have raised their voices against faster slaughter lines in poultry plants.. The organizations are urging the United States Department of Agricultures (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to reject a recent proposal from the National Chicken Council (NCC) that would allow poultry processing facilities to have the unrestricted ability to run their line speeds faster than the current, already excessive, rate of 140-birds per minute. Submitted in September 2017, the NCCs proposal faced immediate backlash, prompting FSIS to open a public comment period from October 13 until December 13, 2017. This proposal, in addition to violating current federal law, would place worker safety, animal welfare and consumer safety in peril. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA), the Animal ...
Millions of animals are exported from the United States each year and shipped thousands of miles to countries such as Russia, Kazakhstan, and Turkey; in 2014 the US exported over 100 million birds, 100,000 cows, 13,000 pigs, and 82,000 sheep, pigs, and goats. While some animals are flown to their destination, many are subjected to ocean journeys that can last weeks. Long distance travel has significant health and welfare implications for animals-motion sickness, heat stress, inadequate ventilation, and loud noises make animals more susceptible to illness and disease.
EFSA has published a scientific opinion on the welfare of bovines during the slaughter process. The opinion proposes monitoring indicators to be used and sampling protocols to be put in place at slaughterhouses. This work has been carried out in the context of the new EU legislation on the protection of animals at the time of killing (Council Regulation EC No 1099/2009). According to this legislation, business operators must ensure that animals do not present any signs of consciousness after stunning and before death.
The World Congresses on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences are the longest running series of international scientific conferences dedicated to the replacement, reduction, and refinement (3Rs) of animal use in research and safety testing. Since 1993, these conferences have been held every 2-3 years, and have attracted a large international group of stakeholders and leading experts interested in scientific approaches to the development and use of methods that replace, reduce, and/or refine animal-based laboratory methods.. The 8th World Congress (WC8) will take place in historic Montreal from August 21-25, 2011, hosted by the Canadian Council on Animal Care. Participants can start planning their stay by visiting the General Information tab on the WC8 website.. Registration and abstract submission for the Congress is now open on the website..

Compassion for animals is one of the highest human virtues. It happens only through the dedication of individuals. Compassion and government are mutually exclusive concepts. The HSUS endorsement of Obama is but the tip of the iceberg. Consider that his primary political mentor, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, has been the major proponent of anti-dog-owner animal rights legislation in Congress. Durbin is the sponsor of the current PUPS legislation that would extend the heavy arm of federal bureaucracy into most kennels in America, and also was the author of the failed amendment to the Pet Animal Welfare Act that was attached to the 2008 Farm Bill. Obamas main allies in Congress read like a Whos Who of radical animal rights activism: defeated Sen. Rick Santorum (author of the failed PAWS legislation three years ago), Sen. Diane Feinstein, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Sen. Ted Kennedy and several others. Obamas running mate, Sen. Joe Biden,consistently gets 100% HSUS ratings. The Obama ticket is an ...
New research conducted by Dr. Richard Martin details new methods for studying a parasitic nematode that sickens millions worldwide, a development that could lead to improved therapies. Martin has developed a means of determining the function of individual genes in Brugia malayi, a parasitic nematode that threatens populations in tropical regions in Africa, South American and Asia. A new study on the development of an animal welfare curriculum in colleges and schools of veterinary medicine was co-authored by Dr. Suzanne Millman who writes, To ensure veterinarians are better prepared to provide leadership during public discussions, there is a need to include current and consistent information about factors that affect animals welfare and techniques for welfare assessment in the veterinary curriculum. ...

Canine aggression poses serious public health and animal welfare concerns. Most of what is understood about breed differences in aggression comes from reports based on bite statistics, behavior clinic caseloads, and experts opinions. Information on breed-specific aggressiveness derived from such sources may be misleading due to biases attributable to a disproportionate risk of injury associated with larger and/or more physically powerful breeds and the existence of breed stereotypes. The present study surveyed the owners of more than 30 breeds of dogs using the Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire (CBARQ), a validated and reliable instrument for assessing dogs typical and recent responses to a variety of common stimuli and situations. Two independent data samples (a random sample of breed club members and an online sample) yielded significant differences among breeds in aggression directed toward strangers, owners and dogs (Kruskal-Wallis tests, P | 0.0001). Eight breeds common to
The research group produces and disseminates new knowledge of the behavioural needs, stress biology and adaptability of domesticated animals in order to develop principles for arrangement of local environment and handling ensuring animal welfare, health and functionality when used for production, research and as hobby and therapy animals.
