RSPCA welfare standards

RSPCA welfare standards

1 of X pages

The RSPCA welfare standards are set by the RSPCA’s team of farm animal welfare experts and are based on leading scientific, veterinary and practical industry expertise.

The standards cover every aspect of the animals’ lives, including feed and water provision, the environment they live in, how they are managed, healthcare, transport and humane slaughter.

The RSPCA holds Standards Technical Advisory Group (STAG) meetings for each species once a year. If you have any feedback regarding standards, please email the RSPCA’s farm animals department.

Updates to our beef cattle and calves standards come into effect on 13 February 2010. These are now available for download.
