Vets have a key part to play in bringing about a food farming revolution that could end the suffering of billions of factory farm animals globally. Compassion In World Farming (CIWF) chief executive Philip Lymbery wants to see a “systemic change“ in the way farm animals are kept and believes the veterinary community has a vital role to play in setting society “on a new course“ in the way it deals with them.
This would see animals moved away from factory farm settings to those that enhance welfare, wellness and afford them opportunity to express natural behaviour.
