Abstract

Investigation of the current situation in Dutch slaughterhouses was performed in two rounds of visits. Physiological measurements were also performed on individual birds under controlled conditions. During these measurements the efficacy of the various parameter settings on consciousness was analyzed using EEG/ECG to determine brain and heart activity. A similar series of physiological measurements were performed on broilers to determine the efficacy of alternative waveforms , an alternative location for electrode placement and an alternative method based on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
