Accelerating Advances in Animal Welfare Grants

The Accelerating Advances in Animal Welfare initiative is a new program at the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) to support farm animal welfare research. Animal welfare research plays a critical role in the development and continuing improvement of sustainable livestock production, with potential to improve animal lives, food quality, farm-laborer work environments and the relationship between our society and the food we eat. Apply by August 2, 2017.

The Accelerating Advances in Animal Welfare program will bring together major stakeholders from the public and private sectors to affect positive changes in farm animal welfare by:

· Identifying High Impact Target Areas for Research

· Partnering to Fund Transformative Research Projects

· Publicizing Applied Outcomes

· Outreach and Education

OBJECTIVE

The objective of this program is to stimulate and support innovative research in farm-animal welfare. Research is critical to progress in this field, as changes to animal production practices may impact animal physiology, may require large-scale alterations in animal housing and may have environmental and economic impacts that extend beyond the farm or production facility. FFAR expects the Animal Welfare program to support cross-disciplinary research in animal genetics, behavior, husbandry, physiology, biotechnology, nutrition and other scientific areas.
