By taking an entirely practical approach, this textbook helps those working with animals to apply methods for improving welfare and bridging the gap between scientific research and practical application. This book provides a guide to practical evaluation and auditing of welfare problems for farmed animals, emphasizing the importance of measuring conditions that compromise welfare, such as lameness or the use of electric goads. This second edition is fully updated with new literature, up-to-date coverage of pain management, and the addition of a new chapter on animal welfare in organic farming systems.

Review:

"The book is a very practical instruction of activity not only for those studying problems of practical application of animal welfare, but especially for those who are responsible for the preparation and instruction of future professional specialists in this field, to implement effective practical programs to improve animal welfare. We can only hope that this sucessful work gets to the hands of those in the field of today ´s multicultural world." (Antonín Holub)

"This is an excellent book on applied animal welfare. The book is a good value, and can be recommended for most animal and veterinary science libraries." (Neville G. Gregory)

"Drawing on the editor's extensive experience in teaching and auditing, as well as contributions from international experts, this book provides a guide to the practical evaluation and auditing of welfare problems, emphasizing the importance of measuring conditions that compromise welfare."

"Overall, this book provides a valuable, single first point of reference for those seeking to assess and ensure animal welfare in the own operations, or as a starting point in the development of a welfare assurance process. Tertiary educators will find that the text also serves as a valuable accompaniment to animal welfare courses for animal science and veterinary students studying production animals." (Andrew Fisher, University of Melbourne, Australia)
