Managing bird welfare – A practical guide by Aviagen

13 July 2018


The Aviagen® poster ‘Managing Flock Welfare’ highlights the key aspects of bird welfare which should be considered during daily flock management.

Not only is bird welfare an integral part of good management and stockmanship, it also plays a pivotal role in maximising bird performance.

An effective and holistic poultry welfare programme is multi-factorial and includes daily management practices (such as vaccination, weighing, bird observation and record keeping) as well as the provision of a correct house environment, nutrition, good biosecurity, equipment and its maintenance, and, importantly, staff training.

This downloadable poster provides insights into all these areas.
