Animal welfare impacts the global food supply. Defining animal welfare and stress/distress are a challenge and a topic for argument. Definitions of animal welfare range from how the animal feels to how it performs in a given environment. Europe and the United States have some animal welfare laws but the rest of the world has few laws. Animal welfare issues in major animal species and classes of animals are reviewed. Finally, animal welfare should be considered along with other issues related to sustainable systems.
