Inventariseren van mogelijke signaalindicatoren voor klimaat in leghenstallen

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

A literature study and a brainstorm session with experts has been carried out to find signalling indicators to check if the climate in poultry houses for laying hens is on a level that welfare of the animals is not harmed. With the available knowledge a draft protocol has been made. It is unclear if this protocol will be distinctive enough to be able to detect problems. Thresholds, like for instance the number of birds with abnormal behaviour, are not available. It therefore is recommended to test and further develop this protocol under commercial circumstances.
