On-farm animal welfare assessment

The aim of the research is to develop, on scientific basis, a monitoring system for assessing animal welfare at farm level that can be used as certification system, for comparing different husbandry systems or as advisory/management tool for the farmer. The welfare monitoring system will include structural and technical parameters and indicators that measure the actual welfare state of the animals in terms of their behaviour, health, performance and disease-resistance.
