Big Steps in the Right Direction...

England - Five Freedoms

The welfare of an animal includes its physical and mental state and we consider that good animal welfare implies both fitness and a sense of well-being. Any animal kept by man, must at least, be protected from unnecessary suffering. We believe that an animal's welfare, whether on farm, in transit, at market or at a place of slaughter should be considered in terms of 'five freedoms'. These freedoms define ideal states rather than standards for acceptable welfare. They form a logical and comprehensive framework for analysis of welfare within any system together with the steps and compromises necessary to safeguard and improve welfare within the proper constraints of an effective livestock industry. 

1.  Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour. 

2.  Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting  area.

3.  Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. 

4.  Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind. 

5.  Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
