It was not really only for welfare, it was also for a market regulation. Was promoted mainly by market motivation, but then we discussed some elements of animal protection at the time. The reason for a producing directive in animal welfare is bases in science, really that demonstrated that was necessary to take out of a particular farming situation, that were not really compatible with the animal welfare and physiology. Every single piece of legislation have a real welfare motivation for ex. Introduce maximum times for the transporting.
