Example guidelines for housing, handling, dosing and sampling in farm animals (a list produced by Dr. Penny Hawkins)

The participants at this meeting have produced a 12-page Consensus Statement, which summarises the common ground between all the stakeholder groups (regulators, academia, industry and animal welfare organisations). The document points out the strengths, challenges and opportunities for further implementation of the 3Rs within research involving agricultural animals. Norecopa will produce a list of specific tasks based upon this consensus statement.
