Animal Welfare

Animal Welfare

We strongly encourage farms to treat their sheep humanely and we suggest the use of the “5 Freedoms” as an animal welfare best practice. The 5 Freedoms are a set of globally recognized standards used in animal welfare.

  1. Freedom from hunger and thirst
  2. Freedom from discomfort
  3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease
  4. Freedom to express normal behavior
  5. Freedom from fear and distress
