We will look at the general legislation and management of health and welfare across the: ruminant and monogastric sectors, focussing on current methods of assessing and improving health and welfare in cattle, sheep, pig and poultry systems; as well as the economic implications of poor health and welfare. As you progress through the module you will be able to choose which of these sectors you will be assessed.
