ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Animal Welfare Approved’s annual Good Husbandry Grants program has launched and is now accepting project proposals aimed at improving farm animal welfare. According to an Animal Welfare Approved press release, grants up to $5,000 are available to farmers already in the Animal Welfare Approved program and to farmers that have submitted an application. Grant applications must be submitted by Oct. 1.

The Good Husbandry Grants program is in its sixth year and has funded more than 100 projects in the United States and Canada to improve farm animal welfare. Past projects included mobile housing, breeding stock, and on-farm processing equipment. Slaughter plants working with or seeking to work with Approved Welfare Approved farmers are also eligible for funding. The program is ideal for established farmers interested in implementing new farming practices.

The 2013-14 funding priorities include welfare improvements in the slaughter process, improved genetics, increased outdoor access, and nonlethal predator control. A primary goal of the program is to facilitate the growth and success of high-welfare, pasture-based systems by providing nontraditional funding resources.

For more information on past winners and the application process, visit http://bit.ly/14JIVQF or contact Grants Coordinator Emily Lancaster at Emily@AnimalWelfareApproved.org or 202-618-4497.
