Norwegian farming has some of the world’s healthiest animals. This is due to the strong focus on animal health over many years in Norway.
Both through breeding programmes and other research, as well as active participations and a desire amongst producers to improve.
The Pig Health Service, the Poultry Health service and the Sheep Health Service have as their main objectives to improve animal health. You can find more information about the services at www.animalia.no og www.fjorfe.org.
Also see the Federation of Norwegian Agricultural Co-operatives own website on animal welfare, www.dyrevelferd.info (in Norwegian), which contains much useful information about animal welfare.
