0

Through the CALF online database, users can access this information and examine the strengths or weaknesses in current policies affecting farmed animals.

SALLY HO: CALF, which stands for the Coller Animal Law Forum, aims to be a digital interactive tool that analyses and centralises all the laws and policies in the world impacting farmed animals.
