The European Union Has the Most Progressive Animal Welfare Laws in the World The EU has the most progressive animal welfare laws in the world.
Article 13 of the Treaty of Lisbon recognises animals as sentient beings and mandates that member states pay full regard to animal welfare when formulating and implementing policy. In the farmed animal context, the EU has prohibited veal crates and barren battery cages and limits the use of sow stalls. Furthermore, the EU has banned the testing of cosmetics and ingredients on animals. In the World Animal Protection (WAP) Animal Protection Index, EU nations score highly; with the UK and Austria scoring ‘A’ and Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden ‘B’ . EU animal health and welfare regulation is discussed further in McCulloch .

Halal meat consumers urged to consider animal welfare 8:54am Thursday 6th February 2014 in News The owners of one of the UK's first halal organic smallholdings are calling on British Muslims to become more aware about where their meat comes from. Willowbrook Farm in Hampton Gay, Oxfordshire, spans 45 acres (18 hectares) of land.
Everything produced, from the goose eggs to the grass-fed lamb, is organic. The Radwan family decided to set up the business in 2002 after becoming disillusioned with the lack of organic meat options available to Muslims. "We felt neither the welfare side of taking care of animals or the ritual side of mentioning God's name was observed very well in the modern food industry," said Lutfi, a former geography lecturer, who spent a year inspecting farms in Sudan. He had dreamt of rearing his own animals and crops, bringing together his religious values and love of nature. The UK halal meat market is estimated to be worth about £3bn.

The report is the first published under the European Union Balance of Competences Review, which is examining the impact that membership of the EU has on UK national interests.
It was developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and draws on evidence submitted by non-governmental organisations, businesses, MPs and other interested parties. Pointing out that the EU is the biggest market for UK agricultural exports, accounting for 69% of total export value, the report concluded that “the internal [EU] market produced real benefits for the UK”. However, it raised concerns over animal disease legislation, stating that civil society organisations had called for “increased flexibility in EU legislation” for the control of animal disease to allow individual member states to take national circumstances into account.
All respondents called for animal health, welfare and food law to be risk-based.

Many farmers maintain that market forces render veterinary care of individual sick sheep and cattle too expensive. Abstract: The Cattle Health and Welfare Group of Great Britain report (CHAWG; 2012) lists the most important cattle diseases and disorders but fails to fully acknowledge the importance of animal mental health and; in so doing; misses the opportunity to further promote animal welfare.
