4-H Animal Welfare Assessment: Does it Work?
Contained in this article are results of a pilot 4-H equine welfare assessment contest. The results were used to examine the success of the first equine welfare assessment contest for 4-H members. Knowledge of equine welfare concerns was assessed, along with opinions about those concerns. Enhancement of awareness of equine welfare issues occurred by the conclusion of the experience. Additional contests, incorporating multiple species, would be beneficial for 4-H youth.
