We were delighted to have had this collection of work edited by Emerita Professor Sandra Edwards, Newcastle University, UK who is widely regarded as one of the world's leading experts on pig welfare.
Since the book's publication, Professor Edwards has continued to explore how science can be modelled to improve pig welfare at all stages of production:
“The interactions between health and welfare are hugely important. If pigs have an underlying health issue such as stomach ulcers, for example, resulting pains can influence aggression. Knowing this means that we can change the nutrition or other factors to help solve it."
Most recently, Professor Edwards was interviewed by Pig World in which she discussed how the research included in her latest edited collection can be utilised to interpret and measure the emotions and behaviour of pigs to meet current welfare protocols, as well as improve overall animal welfare.
