Improving animal welfare in a Sardinian farm
A livestock farmer received training and undertook a consultation to find out how to improve animal welfare on his farm.
The region of Sardinia has a good track record of high quality cattle breeding and production. In this specific case, the beneficiary farm breeds cattle in stables, predominantly for meat production. In response to consumer concerns about animal welfare and also due to potential for generating added value, the farmer participated in a number of training courses and received specialised advice on how to improve the living conditions for his livestock.
Improving living conditions for livestock created better quality meat which was then sold at the local market.
