The recent Swiss legislation has introduced a requirement that all livestock and pets must only be sold to trained persons. 1 highlights policy instruments that appear to have most promise in both improving the care of animals by education, appropriate training and incentives for keepers, and creating informed consumers who may seek to purchase high-welfare products. Some countries have sought to incorporate animal health and welfare into broader goals of improving food quality, food security and the meeting of environmental and climate change goals.

Y. ) Proceedings of the 1st European Symposium on Poultry Welfare. World's Poultry Science Association, Copenhagen, pp. 141-148. G. Pritchard ABSTRACT Whereas a wide range of policy instruments - legal, economic, education and publicity - are available to effect changes in production systems, legislation and market-led assurance schemes have been the main forces used to protect and enhance the welfare of farm animals. The Conventions of the Council of Europe (COE) and their Recommendations focused on the provisions of resources and duty of care to meet the needs of animals.

In contrast to these attitudes, only about four citizens in ten (38%) state that they prefer buying eggs from animal welfare friendly production systems such as free range or outdoor production systems. This could mean that another 20% of Europeans do not ask for free range or organic eggs but prefer that hens are kept in better indoor housing. Finally, the third group of about 42% do not care (9%) or do not see any problem in the actual housing conditions of laying hens. These results suggest that every housing system is suitable for some European consumers but it would be wrong to assume that the development in public attitudes would stop at the current level.
