HSA International Conference

Dr. Marta Comin will present the paper “Abattoir inspection as early warning system to improve pig welfare at farm level” selected for the event “HSA International Conference: Livestock Welfare during Transport, Marketing & Slaughter” in Edinburgh (UK) on 30 June and 1 July 2022.

This study highlights the importance of post-mortem evaluations of pig carcasses at the slaughterhouse to identify welfare problems at the breeding stage.

The use of a visual inspection protocol of externally and viscera lesions, attributable to the production phase, can be a feedback for the farmer to identify relevant problems on which to act to improve animal welfare.
