What is farm animal welfare

Animal welfare is the well-being of non-human animals.Animal welfare is how an animal adapts to its environment and meets its basic natural needs. It has been scientifically proven that the requirements of animal welfare are met if the animals are healthy, feel comfortable, well nourished, safe, can express their nature freely and are not threatened by pain, fear and stress. A high level of animal welfare requires more than disease immunisation and veterinary treatment, suitable housing, management, nutrition, humane treatment and humane slaughter. Animal welfare refers in particular to the survival of animals; the treatment of animals is described in other terms, such as animal care, husbandry and humane disposal. World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Terrestrial Animal Health Code 2011 translated as "animal welfare" in Japan.

In 1965, the British government, in response to social demands, appointed Professor Roger Brambell to conduct a study on the welfare of farm animals. As a result of the study, the Farm Animal Welfare Advisory Committee was established in 1967 (reorganised as the Farm Animal Welfare Committee in 1979). The committee proposed that animals should have the freedom to turn around, dry themselves, stand up, lie down and stretch their limbs, and later established the 'five freedoms' of animal welfare.

In today's internationally accepted parlance, animal welfare is generally understood to mean five freedoms.

1freedom from hunger and thirst, to ensure that animals are provided with the food and water they need to maintain good health and energy.

2 freedom to live in comfort, by providing suitable housing or habitat where animals can sleep and rest in comfort.

3 freedom from pain, injury and disease by ensuring that animals are free from additional pain, preventing disease and providing prompt treatment for sick animals.

4 freedom to live free from fear and sorrow and to ensure conditions and dispositions that prevent animals from being subjected to mental suffering.

5 the freedom to express their nature, to be provided with adequate space, appropriate facilities and to be with companions of their own kind.

Why focus on farm animal welfare? The way forward for us


On many farms and ranches, both good and bad, all farm animals are penned up like machines from feeding to production. Some people say that it's great for farm animals to have a stable home and plenty of food compared to wild animals. But is this really the case? Those animals in the wild live in freedom. Many farm animals, on the other hand, live their entire lives in a small cage, even in filthy conditions where they are left to die of disease. And they live their whole lives for humans.


It shouldn't be like that.

And that's why we chose to go into farm animal welfare.

All farm animals need to be treated with respect and must be treated with respect.


Until now, technology, technology has developed and we have built countless things that we could never have imagined before, electric lights, cars, planes, computers and so on. But there is one thing that we cannot directly create in any way, and that is life. How beautiful and brilliant life is. And how unique each life is. Even within the same species there are countless differences. How amazing.


And yet we imprison them for the sake of human needs, depriving them of their freedom and denying them even the last shred of dignity. This should not be the case. Farm animals are not machines.


We believe that one day most of us will free them, free the farm animals. But for the time being what we want most is to give farm animals the respect and dignity they deserve, to let them live with more dignity. That farm animals live in better conditions, have healthier food and water, are not abandoned but treated when they are sick, etc.


We want the world to be a better place, not only for us as humans but also for the other animals that live on the same planet as us.
