Animal Health and Welfare
IntroductionWelcome to week 2. The aim of this week is to learn about herd management, focusing on technological innovation, protection of animal welfare and environmental sustainability.Throughout the week you will gain an increased awareness about the production of food from animals that are reared inside farms, guaranteeing respect for the ethology, welfare and health of animals but also protection of the environment.Animal welfare is defined by the 5 freedoms:
- Freedom from hunger and thirst
- Freedom from discomfort
- Freedom from pain, injury or disease
- Freedom from fear and distress.
