dairy cow welfare strategy

The Dairy Cow Welfare Strategy developed by the NFU in conjunction with the dairy sector was launched in August 2010 with the support of the whole dairy supply chain, all of whom have committed to collaborate in delivering the agreed targets.

Since the launch in 2010, the Cattle Health and Welfare Group have taken the responsibility for the coordination and delivery of this strategy.  Part of this responsibility is the provision of an annual report that details the progress the sector has made against the targets.

This document is a summary of the progress made in the first year,  by the GB dairy sector in its quest for continually improving the welfare of the dairy cow.
