Animal Welfare Advice

The HSA offers independent advice on animal welfare matters at markets, during transport and at slaughter. The HSA is an internationally recognised specialist charity and provides advice to industry, government bodies, international food business and academia, in addition to handling specific requests for advice from members of the general public.

If you require advice on a particular matter or would like to discuss something relevant to your facility, please contact the HSA office.

The HSA can also provide a welfare assessment service to slaughterhouses and livestock markets, either at the request of the slaughterhouse or market, or at the request of a retailer, along with the slaughterhouse or market’s agreement.  Assessments can be provided of some or all live animal areas of the processing plant or livestock market, along with suggestions for improvement where necessary.
