Grants for Advancing Swine Well-Being

1

min

Every day, we witness the remarkable commitment swine professionals have in ensuring that their animals are healthy and well cared for. But we also see the challenges they face. This is why we are committed to support their efforts to advance swine well-being.

We believe that taking care of the well-being of animals is the right thing to do and that it goes hand-in-hand with the health of animals. We also believe that advancing the well-being of animals requires collaboration, commitment and support, as farming practices evolve to meet the demands of a changing world.

In collaboration with the Farm Animal Welfare Education Centre (FAWEC) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), the Korean Association of Swine Veterinarians (KASV) and the Brazilian Association of Swine Veterinary Specialists (ABRAVES), we are looking to support three swine professionals across the world who are innovating in pig well-being and husbandry.
