Animal Welfare & Free Range Principles
Klein Karoo's ostriches are domesticated animals.
The ostrich industry expect their producers to adhere to farming principles to ensure the welfare of ostriches and to comply with Free Range standards. Below are the five freedoms required internationally to ensure animal welfare:
- Freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition.
- Freedom from discomfort.
- Freedom from pain, injury and disease.
- Freedom from fear and distress.
- Freedom to express normal behaviour.
