Role of range use in infections with parasites in laying hens: In organic egg production a free-range area is provided for animal welfare. Both higher and lower worm burden (Ascaridia (Asc), Heterakis (Het) and Capillaria (Cap)) are reported for hens in free-range systems compared to other systems. Parasite infections can reduce health, welfare and productivity.
