Commercialization of small and large livestock farming and the rise in animal production is the topmost agenda of Nepal Government for self-sustaining in the sector. So the rise in the number of industries is obvious as there are numerous grants and subsidies by government agencies. Animal Welfare issues are very much neglected in this industry due to a lack of legal industry standards.
Sneha’s Care is working with the Ministry of Livestock and Agriculture to develop animal welfare standards in the livestock sector with its implementation on a multi-stakeholder partnership basis. This program also focuses on a farmed animal welfare certification system, which incorporates many aspects of good animal welfare practices.
