Description

Dr Chamberlain reintroduces the concepts of animal rights, ethics, image and welfare, as well as cultural, religious and traditional values, and highlights the need for genuine welfare issues to be the focus of future attention, rather than ethical and image issues. He highlights that arguments need to be based on science (if possible), and gives examples where public image and emotion is not consistent with evidence of improved welfare outcomes, when comparing the welfare outcomes of different animal production systems. Examples of global and Asian animal welfare issues are highlighted, and current activities are discussed, including bear bile collection, greyhound racing in Australia and dog transport and slaughter in Asia, imported Australian cattle slaughter in Asia, and the introduction of new veterinary legislation in Vietnam. Future focus is also discussed, including legislating against bear farming across Asia, addressing the welfare issues around dog caging, transport and slaughter, possibly through controlling the industry as a production animal industry, and addressing the abandonment of male diary calves in India. Our responsibility as animal scientists is discussed, with a focus on putting forward rational, science based dialogue to the debate, becoming involved in developing and implementing appropriate welfare standards, especially for production animals. Most importantly, Dr Chamberlain indicates that animal scientists have the responsibility of improving public awareness through training undergraduate animal science students, so they understand local and international production animal welfare issues, as well as their responsibilities to implement rational, science based and appropriate change, to develop sustainable animal production industries.
