Alberta Farm Animal Care ( Afac ) Association, Calgary
AFAC's goal is to improve animal handling and promote responsible animal care. The partnership recognizes that animal welfare issues are a growing international concern and the public expect all animals to be humanely treated throughout their lifetime. (AFAC's goals and timeline).
AFAC is an association started in 1993 by the livestock producers of Alberta to:
promote responsible, humane animal care;
engage in discussion with the public;
monitor and participate in issues and legislation, and;
encourage animal care research.
We are the first livestock organization to form a working partnership with our provincial animal protection agency - the Alberta SPCA. Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) is also a partner of this new umbrella group called the Alberta Livestock Protection Network (ALPN).
The industry also recognizes the need to base change on valid livestock welfare research and data linking to economic returns. AFAC, Agriculture Canada and AF formed the Livestock Welfare Research Partnership to ensure effective technology transfer from research development to producers and the public.
Responsible animal care is necessary for the long term sustainability of Canada's livestock industry, both domestically and globally.
