What’s the relationship between animal welfare and caretakers? – Dr. Anna Johnson

Caretakers are the backbone of swine welfare. Because they interact with the animals throughout the whole day and make sure their needs are met, they are key to the well-being of the pigs. To emphasize and shed light on these matters, I talk to Dr. Anna Johnson, an esteemed expert in animal welfare. Dr. Johnson discusses the indispensable role of the caretaker in the swine industry, highlighting the significance of proper training and the value of technology, whose purpose is to assist rather than replace the caretaker in their daily tasks as well as promote welfare.

“The caretaker’s role is vital for swine welfare, regardless of the size and condition of the farm. Quality care is crucial, as pig well-being relies entirely on their dedication.” – Dr. Anna Johnson
