Survey on relevance of indicators for the evaluation of sheep welfare
On behalf of ISAE member Giovanni Marcone, Estonian University of Life Sciences:
My topic is Animal welfare and Animal behaviour, and I am working with sheep. I am trying to develop a protocol to assess sheep welfare on farm. The protocol will be used in different sheep flocks in different conditions, different systems (meat and milk) and different countries. I started in Italy, but I will continue to work in Estonia and other countries. This project is international. I need people who are involved in animal welfare, behaviour, production, or ethology, farmers, consumers, or veterinarians, etc. to complete a fast survey (it takes maximum 10 min).
