WelFarmers project, included in the Horizon Europe Program, has officially started. Since 1st January 2024 and for three years, pig farmers, research centers and higher education institutions will be working togeth-er in the EU-funded project ‘WelFarmers’ where more than 50% of the pig production in Europe is repre-sented in the consortium formed by eight European countries.

WelFarmers has been created to work on the four very important pig welfare EU Thematic Groups:

  • Ban of cages- Loose housing of lactating sows.
  • Undocked tails- Production of pigs with non-docked tails.
  • Castration- Avoiding pain in castration.
  • Space/flooring- Space allowance and flooring for growers and finishers

Placing practitioners at the center of the R&I activities and with the clear objective to work “not only for practitioners but also with them” WelFarmers will accelerate implementation and increase acceptance of welfare solutions by identifying and sharing best practices to make it even more feasible to improve pig welfare on farms across Europe.

Funded by the European Union. Views and opinions expressed are however those those from the author(s) only and do not necessarily reflect those of the European Union. Neither the European union nor the granting authority can be held responsible for them.
