Farm animal well-being Farm animal well-being

Because farm animal
well-being works.


Science shows that when farm animals are not just healthy, but also free of pain and discomfort, there are far-reaching positive consequences.

At Boehringer Ingelheim, we believe that vets play a key role in promoting better farming practices. Our aim is to build and share scientific knowledge around farm animal well-being, where effective pain management benefits livestock and rewards farmers, while satisfying the social demands for responsible farming.
