Animal welfare and health are important. Of course first of all for the animals themselves. But livestock farmers and fish farmers also want their animals to have a healthy and good life. And consumers too find it important that the meat, dairy and eggs they buy are produced by healthy animals that have or had a good life.
Livestock farming is undergoing major changes due to innovations and social developments. There is a transition to a more sustainable, circular agrofood system. Research from Wageningen Livestock Research contributes to that transition.
