Animal well-being innovators wanted

Bayer has launched a global Care4Cattle initiative towards recognising innovative thinking in advancing animal well-being, in partnership with the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO). 

“Why not an Australian farmer? In this time of great community concern about Animal welfare, it would great to highlight local success stories.

The Care4Cattle initiative offers livestock professionals the financial assistance to further advance dairy and beef cattle well-being on the farm. Submissions for the Care4Cattle grant are welcome from farmers and farm animal keepers, practicing veterinarians working closely with farmers to implement well-being advancements, as well as researchers and graduate students in veterinary medicine or animal science who engage with farmers in the research on cattle well-being. The projects need to demonstrate innovative, practice-oriented ways to improve cattle well-being on farm level. Submissions are accepted until 25 June.
