Roz Dixon Memorial Scholarship

for Farm Animal Welfare Research

 

The scholarship will be provided for research that addresses issues in intensive farming that would have the potential to eliminate practices that impact on an animal’s ability to express natural behaviours such as:

·        nurturing their young,

·        interacting with their herd or flock,

·        freedom for movement and exercise,

·        minimizing stress in their environment and handling,

·        alternatives to surgical procedures.
