Summary and Implications

Concern about the welfare of domesticated animals has increased dramatically in the United States and across many other industrialized countries. The issues involved are complex, and there is widespread disagreement both as to the extent of human responsibilities toward animals and how those responsibilities should be carried out. It is imperative that undergraduate students are aware through international educational endeavors to be able to tackle and work on these issues in their professional career. Therefore faculty in the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University has created a new AnS 496 course to be held in the summer titled; European Perspectives on Farm Animal Welfare in England and Scotland.
