Ireland Launches Farmer and Animal Welfare Network

A new Farmer and Animal Welfare Network (FAWN) has been launched in Ireland. According to Ciara Feeney Reid, chairwoman of the Farm Animal Welfare Advisory Council, “the primary aim of FAWN is to help identify and address animal welfare issues and to prevent a deterioration in any difficult situation through collaboration and communication.” This new initiative is part of the commitment made in Ireland’s Animal Welfare Strategy 2021-2025.
