• • • Animal welfare survey available until October 31
Alberta’s livestock sector has until October 31 to complete a survey as part of the Livestock Welfare Engagement Project being conducted by Alberta Farm Animal Care (AFAC) on behalf of the Alberta government.
The goal of the project, says AFAC in a recent press release, is a collaborative look at animal welfare in Alberta’s livestock industry, where AFAC will facilitate the collection of input from individuals and organizations across the sector.
“This is an excellent opportunity for the Alberta livestock industry’s voice to be heard on what we are doing well, where our weaknesses are, how we’re working together and where we are not,” says Melissa Moggy, AFAC Livestock Welfare Engagement Project Lead. “It’s a benchmarking project which is engaging Alberta’s livestock industry as a whole, everyone from a person who has one horse to a livestock commodity organization.”
