Can Farming Contribute to Research & Innovative Housing for Layers?

8 May 2015, at 12:00am

UK - That's the question being asked at an event on the evening of 18th May at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

Willy Derks from Rondeel Housing will be over from the Netherlands for the event, which may interest egg producers and those associated with the industry.

Mr Derks has developed a roundhouse for layers, which consists of night and day quarters.

It is a completely new concept in bird housing and looks to find the balance between public acceptance, the well-being of the farmer and the welfare of the birds.

The event takes place between 6-8pm

It is free to attend, but booking beforehand is essential on 07779 572598.
