Research organisation Australian Pork Limited
Objective summary Deliverables of the project:
Establishment of a webbased forum which can be used to address specific issues.
Understanding of the stakeholders' views and background on targeted welfare topis.
Publication of peerreviewed scientific papers to disseminate the findings.
Once established, the forum will have the potential to expand to other animal industries or particular issues.
