Ethics of livestock farming? : who cares?

Research output: Book/ReportInaugural speechPopular

Abstract

'Concerns about livestock farming mainly focus on animal welfare.
Societal groups address livestock farmers on their duty of care
because more and more animals are kept in increasingly intensive
systems. Most farmers, as caring farmers, are willing to take
various measures to improve the welfare of their animals.
However, not all solutions to animal welfare problems are seen
as a welfare improvement or give rise to other welfare concerns.
How will farmers be able to perform their duty of care?'
