Title in English: Farm based breeding of dual purpose poultry: Experiences from a biodynamic poultry farm in The Netherlands

Abstract / summary in English:

Since 2009 a small scale breeding and selection project started on a biodynamic farm in The Netherlands. The overall goal is to breed stronger hens that do well under organic conditions and show lower rates of mortality and at the same time have roosters that can be reared for meat production. In this paper results concerning egg and meat production are given, as well as thoughts about economic aspects.
