Participants are needed for a study on producer perceptions of animal welfare.
The research project will examine the practices and perceptions of farm animal welfare among livestock producers, feedlot owners, and beef processors in both the beef and dairy industries of Alberta. It is being conducted in the context of the short-lived move by Earls Restaurants to only source beef from the U.S. Certified Humane program.
The research is being conducted by University of Alberta master’s student Emilie Bassi. She is seeking to conduct interviews (approximately one to two hours in length) with beef and dairy producers, feedlot owners, and beef processors.
If you are interested in participating, contact Bassi at [email protected] or 403-852-7801.
