Many companies are now placing expectations on animal welfare for suppliers, adopting an approach of the:   “Five Freedoms of Cattle”.

Freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition-by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor.

Freedom from discomfort- by providing a suitable environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.

Freedom from pain, injury and disease- by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.

Freedom to express normal behavior- by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animals’ own kind.

Freedom from fear and distress- by ensuring conditions that avoid mental suffering.

Why would you raise cattle any other way?
