The valuation of animal welfare in human society


Occasional Paper Department of Agricultural Economics and Management, University of Reading ( 3): 1-7
The valuation of animal welfare in human society
The value which people place on a commodity could be assessed in terms of money or of time, energy or social costs. Where the objective is to improve some aspect of animal welfare, amongst possible actions, people may pay more for a product, buy an alternative product, write letters to Members of Parliament, advertise their convictions in a public way, or adopt different dietary habits.
