Farm Visitation system – Euralia report

The UEVP is in favour of the promotion of good farming and rearing practices and thus the development of a farm visitation system by veterinarians in order to control animal health and welfare. Regular farm visits would indeed help implementing on farm bio security measures, through close cooperation between farmers and veterinarians, and therefore constitute a very efficient prevention tool.

The implementation of such a system would help reaching the objectives of animal health and welfare pursued by the New Animal Health Strategy, given the fact that such a system would deeply contribute to promote “the prevention of animal diseases better than cure”.
