The concept of animal welfare goes back a long way. It first appeared towards 1830 in the writings of Louis Furcy Grognier, a professor at the Lyon veterinary school. On his walks in the surrounding mountains, the animal-care specialist observed the new practices being put in place by farmers, forcing their multipurpose cows to become dairy cows. After sinking back into obscurity, animal welfare returned to the stage in the 1960s when industrial meat production methods were on the increase.
