Broiler Stocking Density Research

We collaborated with Dr. Karen Schwean-Lardner and her team from the University of Saskatchewan to conduct a research trial evaluating the impacts of broiler stocking density on bird welfare, performance, environment and condemnations. We investigated outcomes including leg and foot pad health, bird production parameters, indicators of stress, and environmental measures such as air quality and bedding quality. We also evaluated the impacts of stocking density on bird behaviour by analyzing video recordings.
