On the second day, the general rules laid down by Directive 98/58/EC relating to the protection of farmed animals for the production of foodstuffs, wool, skin or fur, or for other farming purposes, will be presented with other specific requirements for particular categories of animals (laying hens, chickens kept for meat production, calves and pigs). The regulations on animal welfare during transport and slaughter will be subsequently explained. In addition, students will learn how effective the enforcement of the current legislation is, and future objectives and strategies for animal welfare in the EU. At the end of the day, animal welfare labeling schemes with the aim of raising animal welfare standards will be presented.
