Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The concern for food animal well-being is one of several serious issues facing intensive animal agriculture. This paper focuses on ethical concepts relevant to the treatment of farm animals and discusses the reasons for social attractiveness of animal welfare philosophy. It defines animal quality of life to be a function of satisfaction of animal needs and proposes longevity studies to assess how efficiently these needs are being satisfied in various production systems.
