In order to maintain this standard, there are six ethical principles, namely, producing healthy food, protecting and promoting animal welfare, and protecting the natural environment, implementing measures to protect public safety, providing employees with a safe working environment, and supporting US pork production. Hope that producers will be able to use best practices for animal farming, which is a promise to the public as well.
  
 
Wang Lixian, Researcher of Institute of Animal Sciences of CAAS
 
      Wang Lixian makes a report on “Genetic Improvement and Animal Welfare”. He says that animal welfare development is urgent and significant in China. For animal welfare improvement, apart from environmental improvement, genetic improvement of welfare traits can also play an important role. In recent years, pig production has been greatly improved through genetic improvement, which has also brought some negative effects. Increased growth rates make pigs more aggressive; higher breeding rates lead to more fights and bullying. Genetic improvement in welfare-friendly traits is more fundamental, which doesn’t require huge structural or management changes. Pig welfare doesn’t contradict with production efficiency. With welfare improvement, the overall production efficiency can be improved as well.
