Abstract: There is pressure on the Australian broiler industry to reuse poultry litter for multiple batches of chickens. We investigated the effects of reused litter on bird performance, welfare, litter pH and moisture, and air ammonia concentrations on a commercial farm in Sydney. The litter inside six sheds was assigned to one of three treatments: 1) full cleanout followed by fresh pine shavings (CNT); 2) litter reuse following heaping and turning (HT); and 3) HT plus the addition of a commercial acidifying litter amendment (HT+A).
