Public perceptions of farm animal welfare and their effects on livestock welfare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Concerns about livestock animal welfare are well documented worldwide. Public attitudes are often studied as indicators of risk for the marketing of livestock products, but are less often studies in relation to their association with community behaviours that are likely to impact on the livestock industries. This paper examines the relationships between public attitudes, meat consumption and the community behaviours that are likely to impact on the sustainability of the livestock industries.
