Describes in detail the holistic approach to the consideration of the health and welfare of the farm animal in relation to the environment in which it is kept. The health and welfare of not only the individual animal but also the herd is discussed comprehensively, beginning with a definition of the terms employed. This is followed by a full analysis of the measurements and observations which can be used to determine the health and welfare status of animals. International and national legislation and private health schemes that are intended to control the spread and eradication of animal diseases are discussed. Included also is the use and form of legislation for the improvement of animal welfare. A description of the role that the animal welfare societies play is given and the effect of different nutritional and housing regimes on animal welfare is considered. The book ends with a look into the future and assesses the effects of new breeding techniques, genetic engineering and the increase of worldwide government involvement in animal production.
