  1. BROILER PRODUCTION- A CASE STUDY Peter Sandøe University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Life Sciences

  2. PLAN • History – how broiler production came about • Development of meat production – role of broilers • The elements of broiler production • Effects on environment • Effects on animal welfare • Other issues • Conclusion – the dilemma of broiler production

  3. HISTORY – HOW BROILER PRODUCTION CAME ABOUT

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF MEAT PRODUCTION – ROLE OF BROILERS

  5. Per Capita Consumption of Meat in the USA (USDA)

  6. THE ELEMENTS OF BROILER PRODUCTION

  7. 556 g (463 %) 120 g (100 %)

  8. BACKGROUND

  9. EFFECTS ON ENVIRONMENT

  10. EFFECTS ON ANIMAL WELFARE

  11. Normal gait with no detectable abnormality Slightly uneven gait, difficult to define and identify defect Defect in gait without hindering movement or acceleration Gait defect affecting the ability to move, and accelerate Severe gait defect, moving only when encouraged Incapable of sustained walking

  12. PREVALENCE OF FOOT PAD DERMATITIS IN BROILERS, DK 2002-2005 • Up to 40 points ≈ up to 20% severe lesions • 41-80 points ≈ up to 40% severe lesions • 81-200 points ≈ up to100% severe lesions

  13. OTHER ISSUES

  14. Other issues • Public health • Foodborne diseases (Salmonella, Campylobactor ...) • Pandemies (Avian flu, ...) • Nature protection • ...

  15. CONCLUSION – THE DILEMMA OF BROILER PRODUCTION

  16. CONCLUSION – THE DILEMMA OF BROILER PRODUCTION • On the one hand broiler production • delivers nutritious and cheap food • with relatively small effects on the environment • On the other hand broiler production • has huge negative effects on animal welfare
