Episode 84 – Animal welfare… on the dairy farm

As consumers, we hope that the animals that provide our meat, milk, eggs, etc. are well cared-for and are kept in good welfare conditions. But what does this really mean in practice? This is the first of a pair of episodes that explore different aspects of farm animal welfare. In this episode, Naturally Speaking’s Eleanor Duncan and Taya Forde speak with Dr Nicola Gladden of the School of Veterinary Medicine about her research into the benefits of administering pain relief to cows and calves around birthing.
