A Public Survey on Handling Male Chicks in the Dutch Egg Sector
Gremmen, H.G.J. ; Bruijnis, M.R.N. ; Blok, V. ; Stassen, E.N. - \ 2018

animal ethics - animal welfare - chicks - laying hens - public opinion
In 2035 global egg demand will have risen 50% from 1985. Because we are not able to tell in the egg whether it will become a male or female chick, billons of one day-old male chicks will be killed. International research initiatives are underway in this area, and governments encourage the development of an alternative with the goal of eliminating the culling of day-old male chicks. The Netherlands holds an exceptional position in the European egg trade, but is also the only country in the European Union where the downside of the egg sector, the practice of killing day-old male chicks, is a recurrent subject of societal debate. ‘Preventing the killing of young animals’ and ‘in ovo sex determination’ are the two alternative approaches available to solve this problem. It is clear that both approaches solve the problem of killing day-old male chicks, either by keeping them alive or by preventing them from living, but they also raise a lot of new animal welfare-related dilemmas. A thorough analysis was undertaken of these dilemmas and the results are presented in this article. The analysis resulted in an ethical framework based on the two main approaches in bioethics: a consequentialist approach and a deontological approach. This ethical framework was used to develop an online survey administered to ascertain Dutch public opinion about these alternative approaches. The results show that neither alternative will be fully accepted, or accepted by more than half of Dutch society. However, the survey does provide an insight into the motives that are important for people’s choice: food safety and a good treatment of animals. Irrespective of the approach chosen, these values should be safeguarded and communicated clearly.

Is het koraal te redden? Kwetsbaar koraal
Meesters, Erik - \ 2017
animal welfare - wild animals - coral - animal health

Bijna dagelijks lezen we berichten over de achteruitgang van het koraal wereldwijd. Soms zijn het orkanen die schade aanrichten, maar meestal ligt de oorzaak bij de mens. Het koraal gaat achteruit door opwarming van het zeewater, vervuiling of visvangst. Gelukkig kan koraal ook herstellen, maar de vraag is hoe snel. Marien ecoloog Erik Meesters weet er alles van en is zondag te gast in Vroege Vogels.

Commissioned by AVINED and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, research is carried out to identify critical success factors for low antibiotic use in broilers. By analysis of sectoral databases, associations between farm and flock characteristics and antibiotics use are determined. With the results of an additional survey, differences in technical and social factors between structural low and high users of antibiotics are examined.

Sinds 2008 werken alle sectoren in Nederland aan het verlagen van hun uitstoot van fijnstof. In de veehouderij wordt gebruik gemaakt van speciale technieken zoals een strooiselschuif. Wageningen University & Research heeft deze technieken ontwikkeld.
Validation of Meyn Footpad Inspection System

The current report describes the results of a validation of the Meyn Footpad Inspection System, a video imaging system to score footpad lesions in broiler chickens at the slaughter plant. It was suggested that the system might assign a different score to footpad lesions compared to a trained manual scorer. Therefore, on the request of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Wageningen Livestock Research performed a limited validation of the system during two days at a commercial plant in The Netherlands. During the validation, the footpad lesion score was determined in a sample of each flock slaughtered on that particular day, manually by a trained observer as well as by the camera system, and the results were compared. This reports describes the results of this validation.

Vlees eten doe je niet meer zomaar. Vlees en alles daarom heen staat enorm in de schijnwerpers. Vanuit voedingsoogpunt blijft vlees zeer waardevol hoewel teveel consumptie van rood vlees de kans op darmkanker verhoogt. Vlees blijft echter ontzettend lekker maar productie en consumptie ervan is te ver doorgeslagen. Het moet anders en duurzamer. Een reis langs de vleeswereld.

De stalboekjes zijn oorspronkelijk gemaakt voor de biologische veehouderij (versies 2009 en 2011) in het kader van onderzoek voor Biokennis. Deze uitgave is in 2014 en 2015 aangevuld met nieuwe middelen en inzichten en aangepast voor toepassing in de gangbare pluimveehouderij. Dit betekent o.a. dat een hoofdstuk over vleeskuikens is toegevoegd en het leghennen stuk is uitgebreid. Het streven om het gebruik van antibiotica terug te dringen vraagt om een ander management. Goede voeding, huisvesting en hygiëne zijn hierbij belangrijk. In dit boekje worden aanwijzingen gegeven om met natuurlijke middelen de gezondheid van de dieren te bevorderen en zo ziektes te voorkomen. Tevens kunnen middelen worden ingezet om de ernst van de ziekte te reduceren. Doel is tevens om de dierenartsen te informeren over de mogelijkheden van natuurproducten en de wetenschappelijke onderbouwing hiervan inzichtelijk te maken.
Light during incubation and noise around hatching aect cognitive bias in laying hens

animal welfare - animal behaviour
Incubation and hatching conditions can inuence development of laying hens. In commercialconditions, chicks are incubated in the dark and hatch in a noisy environment. €is may a�ecttheir behavioural and cognitive development in a negative way and may have lasting e�ectson their assessment of ambiguous stimuli in a cognitive bias test. €e aim of this study was toinvestigate the e�ects of light during incubation and noise around hatching on cognitive biasin adult laying hens. To meet that aim, eggs were incubated and hatched according to fourdi�erent treatments in a 2×2 cross design: during the .rst 16 days of incubation, they wouldeither be incubated in the dark or in a 12L:12D light schedule. From 17 to 21 days of age, half ofthe eggs from each light treatment would either be incubated in a noisy environment (playbackcommercial incubator noise; 90 dB) or a quiet environment (60-70 dB). Birds were kept ingroups of maximum 10 birds in oor pens separated per treatment from 0 to 35 weeks of age(seven groups per treatment). At 35 weeks of age, 32 hens (eight per treatment) were trainedfor a cognitive bias test, where they had to learn that one side of the test arena was rewarded(mixed grains and mealworms) and the other side was not (smell of feed only). €e rewardedside was varied according to a balanced design. €e experimenter was blind to birds’ treatments.When a bird had learned the task, she was tested with ambiguous cues, where the feeder wouldbe placed in the centre (50%), nearer the unrewarded side (25%) or nearer the rewarded side(75%). €is was done by subjecting each hen to 12 trials, where two rewarded (R) trials andone unrewarded (U) trial (order RRU or RUR, balanced design) were followed by one of theambiguous trials. For all hens, the .rst ambiguous trial was the 50% trial, followed by the 25%trial and the 75% trial. Latency to approach the feeder was analysed using a mixed model withtreatment, trial order and type of cue as .xed factors (including all interactions) and pen nestedwithin treatment as random factor. Over all treatments, birds had a shorter latency to reach thefeeder with the rewarded cue compared to all other cues, and with the 50% and 75% comparedto the unrewarded and 25% cue as expected (F4,360=211.4; P<0.001). €ere was a signi.cantinteraction between treatment and type of cue (F12,360=2.11; P<0.05). Birds from the lightand noise treatment were slower than birds from the other groups in the ambiguous 50% trial(F1,360=3.49; P<0.05), which is interpreted as a more pessimistic response to the ambiguouscue. €e light treatment during incubation may have resulted in a faster embryo development.€is may in turn have resulted in chicks that were more sensitive to the noise treatment thatwas applied around hatching. In conclusion, incubation and hatching conditions in layinghens can a�ect cognitive bias in laying hens. Creating more quiet incubators and could havepositive e�ects on laying hen welfare.
