Project Description

Being aware of the signals

Checking the breathing noises

Good animal care begins with attentive observation by the farmers.
Feed and water consumption, the distribution of the animals in the housing and the condition of the litter provide important indications of whether or not everything is ok.
A hygiene plan with rules for visitors, external vehicles and pest control, as well as hygiene sluices with a change of clothing and disinfection facilities are required under the regulations.

The “all in/all out” principle in chicken farming with care by people who have no contact with other animals kept for farming purposes is a much tried and tested method of epidemic prevention.

Cleaning the housing

After every single farming phase an empty phase of several days is necessary, during which the housings are mucked out, cleaned and disinfected. The cleanliness of the housing is checked by regular microbiological tests.
