Animal welfare

Research to address the priority areas in animal welfare in livestock industries.

Our research includes:

  • Integrated animal welfare research across nutrition, disease and genetics
  • Stress management in animal handling, environment and transport
  • Objective measurement of livestock welfare
  • Continuous welfare improvement (pain management and mitigation)

Advancing the science of animal wellness

Professor Alan Tilbrook is the Director of the National Animal Welfare Biomarkers Consortium (NAWBC). The Consortium undertakes research to develop accurate scientific measurements of stress and wellbeing in production animals, to provide an objective basis for the assessment of animal welfare.

A recently launched University of Queensland initiative, The Animal Welfare Collaborative, brings together all interested Australians to work towards a shared goal—to make Australia a global leader in animal welfare.
