The Five Freedoms
Ensure you observe The Five Freedoms, the basic ideals of welfare for farm animals:
Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
