Costs and benefits of good animal welfare - for animals, farmers and societyAhmed, Haseeb; Alvåsen, Karin; Berg, Lotta; Emanuelson, Ulf; Hansson, Helena; Hultgren, Jan; Röcklinsberg, Helena
Society’s demand for good animal welfare has led to discussions about the costs of achieving and maintaining one. This is relevant to Swedish animalbased food production, because producers in Sweden in many respects have stricter requirements than farmers in other countries. They therefore face competition from imported foods produced under less strict animal welfare regulations. At the same time, good animal welfare can have a value in itself and can provide benefits for animals, farmers and society.
