Farming Today This Week: Animal welfare in farming
Can high standards of animal welfare and food production coexist? That's the question Charlotte Smith puts to Richard Findlay from the National Farmers' Union, David Main from the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, and Phil Brooke from Compassion in World Farming. Together they have a frank discussion of a wealth of welfare issues, such as tail-docking in pigs, the fate of male calves in the dairy industry, and the transportation of livestock both in the UK and abroad.
