ASSESSING PAIN IN FARM ANIMALS. PROCEEDINGS OF A WORKSHOP HELD IN ROSLIN (UK), OCTOBER 25-26, 1984.
The papers and accompanying synopses of discussion are the product of a workshop held on October 25th and 26th 1984 at the AFRC Poultry Research Centre, Roslin, Scotland as part of the continuing programme of meetings and research coordinated by the C.E.C. which forms part of a Programme on Farm Animal Welfare. The general aim of this workshop was to raise awareness of the subject and to encourage its adoption as a viable and attractive research field. Specific aims were: to discuss the potential use of a variety of methods of assessing pain in animals, to comment upon their application in farm animals, and to make recommendations for future research in this field. Participation in the workshop was restricted to representatives of the countries of the EEC. Short papers of six approaches to the assessment of pain were precirculated, briefly reviewed by their authors and discussed. The precirculated papers and a summary of the discussants' comments are included in the proceedings together with synopses of the discussions which followed.
