AUSTRALIA - A lawyer hired by the federal government to examine Australia's animal welfare strategy says farmers are failing to make sound arguments in support of their practices.

Lawyer Geoff Bloom says animal industries around the world are preparing for tougher laws on welfare, cruelty, labelling and disclosure, reports ABC Rural.

He says that it is no longer good enough for farmers simply to attack animal rights groups who target how they treat animals.
