Vereenvoudiging Welfare Quality® protocol voor varkens

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

The WQ animal based welfare measuring protocol for pigs is time consuming. This report shows that simplification for sows is hardly possible and for growing finishing pigs it can be simplified by reducing the sample size and potentially by using specific measures at the slaughter line instead of on farm measures.
