Development of the ‘animal welfare’ dimension within the Greenwell sustainability assessment model. 1.: Justification of the selection of indicators

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

The current report describes the development of the ‘animal welfare dimension’ (‘welfare assessment model’) within the overall Greenwell sustainability model. As we apply the framework of Welfare Quality®, in which animal health is considered one of the aspects of animal welfare, the model also includes health indicators. The model has been developed according to two steps: definition of long-lists of indicators for the broiler breeder, hatchery, broiler on-farm and broiler end-of-life stage, and the selection of key indicators from these long-lists, as well as whether these need to be measured real-time or can be estimated by a representative sample or literature value.
