Welfare Quality published their welfare assessment protocols for various species 8 years ago. Since then, protocols have been applied for the different species by researchers as well as the industry.
This workshop aims to critically discuss the Welfare Quality assessment protocols in terms of validity of measures and the integration into farm scores. Users and members of the Welfare Quality Network share experiences with respect to the different species protocols.
What’s good and what needs to be improved? To what extent have protocols been applied by the industry, and what’s their experience? What will be needed for implementation at a larger scale? These and other questions will be discussed in this workshop.
Workshop organisers: Björn Forkman, University of Copenhagen
