Animal Health and Welfare Pathway Now Live


The Animal Health and Welfare Pathway (AHWP) is a new government plan introduced as part of the Sustainable Farming Initiative. DEFRA states the primary aim of the scheme is to 'improve animal health and welfare across our national herds and flocks' . One of the critical principles to achieving this is encouragement of vet involvement on farm. The first strand of the Pathway is specifically designed to do this through the Health and Welfare Review which is now open for registration.

Health and Welfare Review

The review takes approximately 2-3 hours and is funded by DEFRA. During this time you and your vet will go through biosecurity, medicine usage and health status on the farm in order to highlight areas that can be improved with the Pathway grant.

The main sections of the review include: 
• Biosecurity review and recommendations 
• Medications review and discussion of responsible use 
• Collection of benchmarking data 
• Discussion of welfare points such as lameness, mastitis and pneumonia 

Read the full newsletter using the link at the top of this blog which includes details on upcoming meeting too.
