Animal Welfare Science, Husbandry and Ethics charts the history of our understanding of farm animal welfare, throughout time—the human use of animals in different eras, and farming in different systems. The book examines the human/non-human animal relationship with a philosophical approach, examining the connections and disconnections between animals and people, and charts the beliefs and motives of different philosophers, theories, and movements in animal welfare. The book also looks at our current animal welfare systems, the pathway to how we got here, and future considerations for achieving a sustainable animal welfare model.

Intended for animal welfare students, teachers, researchers and academic libraries, this book introduces a complex subject requiring an understanding of the underlying factors and drivers of human behaviour and farming systems.
