Farm animal welfare

1 of X pages

Our vision is for all farm animals to have a good life and be treated with compassion and respect.

In this section, we explain some of the welfare issues facing farm animals and show how animals reared on the RSPCA Assured scheme have better lives.

RSPCA welfare standards

The farms, hauliers and abattoirs approved by RSPCA Assured have been assessed to the RSPCA’s farm animal welfare standards.

The RSPCA welfare standards cover beef cattle, chickens reared for meat, dairy cows, egg laying hens, pigs, sheep, salmon and trout, turkeys and veal calves.
