Information about animal health, well-being & production for poultry-keepers to use to improve economic results & well-being of animals, as well as their own.
Proper management starts with recognising signals in practice.
For poultry-keepers, this means being alert when in the hen house, watching and listening to the animals, and paying attention to their behaviour as a group aswell as their individual behaviour. This usually provides much information about animals’ health, well-being and production for poultry-keepers to use for improving economic results and the well-being of the animals, as well as their own.
Poultry farming is currently investing in various new housing systems that require another type of management. The book Poultry Signals includes points of departure allowing for more animal-oriented procedures and is vital for poultry-keepers and anyone involved in poultry on a regular basis.
This book is a successful total concept for you to use in associate management.
Poultry Signals was written in collaboration with advisers, poultry veterinary surgeons, poultry researchers and of course poultry-keepers from practice. The authors are Monique Bestman (Louis Bolk Institute), Marko Ruis (ASG), Jos Heijmans (GD) and Koos van Middelkoop.
The initiative is supported by NOP (Dutch organisation of poultry-keepers) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature Management and Fisheries).
As a result of these close contacts, a reference book was created that optimally anticipates the specific requirements of poultry-keepers.
