Animal health and welfare will continue to be a major focus for Pilgrim’s moving forward. To achieve our goal of a 90 percent or better for our production facilities and a 95 percent or better for our live production units on our Animal Health and Welfare Scorecard, we will have to continue to innovate, invest and focus on animal welfare in our facilities.
We will continue our engagement in precompetitive industry associations where we can participate in efforts to advance the health and well-being of the chickens under our care. Sharing best practices with and learning from our industry peers will drive improvements and increase opportunities for improved animal welfare performance. Finally, we will continue to conduct and engage in research to advance our animal husbandry and management techniques to improve the welfare of our chickens.
