The Animal Health and Welfare Pathway supports improvements in farm animal health and welfare. The first step of the pathway is the Annual Health and Welfare Review. Starting this autumn, farmers who keep cattle, sheep and pigs can get funding to pay for a vet or vet-led team to visit their farm and carry out a yearly review. We’re now ready to put more of the pathway to the test and we need your help.
Paul is a senior user researcher working on the Digital, Data, and Technology Service team on Defra’s Animal Health and Welfare Pathway. Paul works alongside David, in recruiting volunteers to participate in the review to understand their insights and challenges while using the service.
