Alberta Farm Animal Care (AFAC) has been asked to facilitate this is a new initiative, funded and requested by the Government of Alberta.
The Livestock Welfare Engagement Project is an initiative where Alberta Farm Animal Care is collaborating with Alberta’s livestock sector to evaluate our industry’s experiences, perceptions, and priorities related to animal welfare. A report of our findings will be shared with the provincial government to support a deeper understanding of livestock welfare opportunities, challenges, strengths, and weaknesses in the province. Your feedback to this survey is a vital part of building that report and will be followed by regional focus groups.
