Title in English: From science to eduction for safeguarding poultry welfare
Abstract / summary in English:
A large variation exists in technical and welfare results among poultry farms. This indicates that on many farms there is a need for improvement in skills and knowledge related to husbandry and management. In recent decades a lot of knowledge based on scientific research has become available. However, much of this knowledge doet not reach farmers or stockpeople. The 'translation' from scientific results to the daily farm practice, including the dissemination methods therefore need special attention.
Keywords in English: poultry welfare, education, training, stockpeople
