The main source of information is the Welfare Quality┬« protocol for pigs, as most of its indicators have already been evaluated with respect to their validity, reliability and feasibility. However, several other schemes were also checked for relevant indicators.<\/p>

For each indicator, a factsheet<\/strong> is developed which describes the underlying welfare concern, the legal requirements, and a suggested inspection and scoring method.<\/p>
