Before you get started

What is RSPCA Assured higher-welfare farming?

Higher-welfare farming includes a set of rules that make animals’ lives better, such as:

  • Pigs are not kept in cages, meaning sows (mother pigs) are free to live with their piglets and raise them naturally.
  • Chickens must have dust baths, raised perches and areas to feel safe when outdoors.
  • Cows must have environmental enrichment (like cow brushes, which they can use to groom and scratch themselves) and access to suitable pasture for as much of the year as possible.


Ideas for your thank you message


Draw a picture

Draw your favourite farm animal living a good life. They could be:

  • Drinking fresh water or eating healthy food.
  • Resting in a comfortable and safe space.
  • Being with their friends.
  • Having fun around the farm.
