What We Do
The Centre conducts research in three program areas:
1. Welfare methodology where we develop and validate methods to measure animal welfare.
2. Housing and husbandry effects on animal welfare.
3. Attitudinal effects:
a. The effects of the attitudes of stockpeople, animal handlers and animal owners on the welfare of their animals.
b. The effects of attitudes to animal welfare on consumer and community behaviour.
These programs support the fourth program area:
4. Tertiary, post-graduate and industry education and training.
Through these programs, the Centre aims to:
Undertake research to inform government and industry in the development of animal welfare policy
