|Title:||Production Systems Related to Free Range Management of Laying Hens||Contributor(s):||Ruhnke, Isabelle (author)||Publication Date:||2016||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/21115||Abstract:||In Australia, free-range housing of laying hens enjoys a large variety of production systems. Hens may be housed on litter floors, slats, an aviary system, or a combination of the above. The outdoor environment may be managed using fixed ranges, rotational ranges, or portable sheds (Ruhnke et al., 2015). Each production system has different impacts on layer health, welfare, and performance. Matching the rearing with the housing system, modifications of the hen house, and environmental enrichment can significantly reduce the stress level of the individual hen (El-Lethey et al., 2000).||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||PIX/AMC 2016: Poultry Information Exchange (PIX) and Australasian Milling Conference (AMC), Gold Coast, Australia, 29th - 31st May, 2016||Conference Details:||PIX/AMC 2016: Poultry Information Exchange (PIX) and Australasian Milling Conference (AMC), Gold Coast, Australia, 29th - 31st May, 2016||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Poultry Information Exchange and Australasian Milling Conference, p. 1-2||Publisher:||PIX/AMC||Place of Publication:||Gold Coast, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070203 Animal Management||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830501 Eggs||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 10
