This paper discusses the basics of different methods used to integrate welfare parameters, focussing on the issue of scientific objectivity. It starts off by addressing parameter selection, the assignment of parameter weightings or rankings and the qualifications necessary for ‘experts’ designing and applying the methodology.

Abstract

This paper discusses the basics of different methods used to integrate welfare parameters, focussing on the issue of scientific objectivity. It starts off by addressing parameter selection, the assignment of parameter weightings or rankings and the qualifications necessary for ‘experts’ designing and applying the methodology. Then five different approaches to integrating parameters are discussed. The paper does not state a preference for any method, but aims to encourage discussion on key elements involved with the on-farm assessment of welfare.
