Farm animal welfare: the benefits

An example of good animal welfare practices at an indoor pig farm in the UK.

Humane farms are better for animals, people and the environment:

  • Raising animals humanely often leads to less feed, fuel and water use by farmers as they move away from intensive farming practices that not only harms animals, causes pollution
  • Humane farms can create jobs, boost profits and keep local food supplies healthy
  • By farming crops and livestock, humane farms can reduce environmental damage – recycling nutrients and improving the soil
  • Greenhouse gas emissions are often reduced when animals are healthy and have good welfare.
