FAWC advice on farmed fish welfare Farm Animal Welfare Committee opinions on the welfare of farmed fish and on the welfare of farmed fish at the time of . Around the world, animals used for meat, eggs and dairy often suffer on factory farms where they are treated as units of production rather than sentient creatures.. The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International present comprehensive reports on animal agribusiness and its toll on farm animal welfare, the environment and public health.
Cloning is an incredibly inefficient technology that results in a tremendous loss of animal life. From grossly oversized heads, twisted limbs, and bloated fetuses to malformed kidneys, immune system deficiencies, and respiratory distress, cloned animals and their surrogate mothers suffer from any of a variety of severe health problems, abnormalities, and deformities that are seen . She has written and presented widely on farm animal welfare, including the genetic engineering and cloning of animals, and has authored chapters for several books, the most recent being “The Future of Farming” published by Blackwells in She is currently co-editing a book on the adverse global impacts of high meat consumption.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) received in May , a request from the European Commission for an update on the state of play of the possible scientific developments on the issue of cloning of farmed animals for food production purposes. The present statement follows the EFSA statement and EFSA scientific opinion and is based on a review of .

In we produced a FAWC Report on the Implications of Cloning for the Welfare of Farmed Livestock (Farm Animal Welfare Council, a, Farm Animal Welfare Council, b), which considered the welfare implications of the techniques involved and the regulatory controls which might be necessary.
We considered both the ethical and welfare issues associated with cloning Cited by: In response, a year later, a high-level report on the Implications of Cloning for the Welfare of Farmed Livestock () made many recommendations.
The recommendations stated that, to protect animal welfare, only people who have the necessary skills in the complex techniques, surgeries and aftercare, should be allowed to clone animals.
The authors argue that animal welfare may be analysed in parallel to product quality, focussing on three major perspectives of sheep welfare: animal treatment. welfare of the animals. Farm animal cloning Cloning presents severe welfare challenges arising directly from its use and also through exacerbation of the problems caused by selective breeding.
Many species have been cloned since Dolly the sheep, the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell, was born in File Size: 1MB. productivity, improved animal health, or resistance to disease.
Animal cloning could also be used to repopulate endangered or extinct animals, or animals that are difficult to breed. DEFRA, Animal welfare: Government response to FAWC's report on the implications of cloning for the welfare of farmed livestock, 2File Size: KB.
Cattle passports do not contain information as to whether the animal is a clone or the descendant of a clone. This is because controls on cattle identification and traceability, which are defined at EU level, are designed to protect human and animal health.
Making improvements in farmed animal quality of life requires the integration of knowledge about animal welfare and knowledge of livestock production systems. Both are value-laden domains, and one role for philosophers has been to articulate and critique value commitments that are implicit within animal welfare science, on the one hand, and Cited by: 1.
Report highlights the danger of cloning to animal health as campaigners also warn it will reduce genetic diversity within herds. An increase in the cloning of farmed animals will lead to a rise in welfare problems and threatens the long-term health of livestock breeds as genetic diversity declines, say campaigners.

The disadvantage of cloning animals is that prolonged use of this technology would create a genetic bottleneck. With all animals have nearly the same, if not identical, genetic makeup, the species would be at an increased risk of extinction because of the risks of inbreeding. Here are additional advantages and disadvantages of cloning animals.
The Roslin Institute recommends strengthening the role of the Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) to consider the implications of genetics on livestock, irrespective of whether these were a consequence of conventional selection, marker assisted genetic modification, or cloning.

The cloning of farm animals raises a number of ethical issues some of which are based on animal welfare while others are grounded in more general philosophical and religious beliefs. The most prominent objections of the second type state that engaging in cloning is “unnatural” and/or amounts to “playing God” and, therefore, cloning is Cited by:.
Harrison’s book prompted the British government to commission the investigation, led by Professor Roger Brambell, into the welfare of intensively farmed animals.
Since that investigation, the idea of the Five Freedoms was posited by the UK’s Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) in Cited by: Fueled by strong student demand and a burgeoning industry, universities are increasing their offerings in animal by: 2.The report by the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production concluded that significant changes are needed in how farmed animals are raised in the U.S., 3 but cloning would move us in the opposite direction.
Cloning promotes the objectification and commodification of animals, treating these living sentient beings as mere machines for human .
