Commitment + Responsibility


At Bayer, we believe that taking care of the well-being of animals is the right thing to do and that it goes hand-in-hand with the health of animals.

Every day, we witness the remarkable commitment livestock professionals have in ensuring that their animals are healthy and well cared for. But we also see the challenges they face. This is why Bayer is committed to support them in their efforts to advance animal well-being.

We also believe that advancing the well-being of animals requires collaboration, commitment and support, as farming practices evolve to meet the demands of a changing world.

In collaboration with the World Farmers' Organisation we are looking for livestock professionals around the world who are innovating in cattle well-being and husbandry.

What is Care4Cattle? Care4Cattle

Care4Cattle is another meaningful example of Bayer’s strong commitment to advancing animal well-being around the world. It is a global grant that provides the tools and resources for innovators in cattle well-being and allows Bayer to offer direct and targeted support for farmers and veterinarians. With the Care4Cattle grant we want to help facilitate the initiation or continuation of innovative and practice-oriented ways to advance dairy and beef cattle well-being on the farm.

Total Care4Cattle funding: €30,000

Out of the received submissions a panel of independent animal well-being experts from academia and the public sector, as well as representatives of the World Farmers’ Organisation and Bayer will select the projects that will receive funding and the respective grant volume.

Who should apply?

We are looking for livestock professionals around the world who are passionate about advancing cattle well-being and have a concrete idea for new or better ways to further improve on-farm practices. Applications are welcomed from:

  • Farmers and farm animal keepers
  • Practising veterinarians working closely with farmers to implement well-being advancements
  • Graduate students and researchers in veterinary medicine, animal or agricultural science who engage with farmers in their research on cattle well-being

Because advancing well-being

benefits the animals and benefits the farm.

The submission phase for the Care4Cattle grant initiative has ended. The selection committee is currently reviewing the submissions received.

Care4Cattle grant recipients will be announced in September.

To those who sent in a submission, thank you for your participation!
