Livestock in the EU: DEVELOPMENTS ON ANIMAL WELFARE AND CONSEQUENCES OF THE BEATING CANCER PLAN ON THE SECTOR
The month of February 2021 has been marked by discussions on a French recovery plan for biosecurity and animal welfare, Ireland’s first animal welfare strategy and the proposal of a national animal welfare label in Italy.
At European level, the Beating Cancer Plan of the European Commission was published on February 3rd, 2021 – causing concerns in the meat sector in light of future regulations.
In the Animal Transport Committee (ANIT) meeting on February 25th, 2021, issues in the live animal transport sector were raised, as well as the failure of Member States to fully implement regulations on the transport of live animals.
