    Symposium review : Future of housing for dairy cattle
    Galama, P.J. ; Ouweltjes, W. ; Endres, M.I. ; Sprecher, J.R. ; Leso, L. ; Kuipers, A. ; Klopčič, M. - \ 2020

    dairy cattle - environment - housing - innovation - welfare

    The objective of this review was to describe recent changes and expected developments in housing systems for dairy cows. These new developments should create an appropriate production environment for modern high-producing dairy cows and stimulate dairy farming-related developments in management, agro-technology, and equipment. Increased labor efficiency has been an important driver of the change from tie-stall barns to cubicle barns (also known as freestall barns). In future housing systems, the natural behavior of cows, climate control, emissions of ammonia and greenhouse gases, reuse of waste, manure quality, the aesthetics of buildings in the landscape, and capital efficiency are becoming increasingly important elements. To address future requirements, new concepts beyond cubicle barns must be developed. Freewalk housing systems; that is, loose housing systems without cubicles, would meet some of these future demands. These systems operate with composting bedding material or artificial permeable floors as lying and walking areas. However, these barns are still in development. Combinations of cubicle and freewalk housing systems, together with other techniques being developed, might become a major future housing system. Other techniques and systems that are being explored according to sustainability criteria include the multi-climate shed, the CowToilet (Hanskamp AgroTech, Doetinchem, the Netherlands) to separate feces and urine, and multifunctional buildings. These buildings and techniques can be part of land-based or, less commonly, city-based farming systems, such as floating farms.

    Greenery in and around houses and apartments is good for the (living) environment in and around the buildings. It has a positive effect on the health and general well-being of residents and visitors. This document provides information on how homes and well-being can benefit from greenery, including references to scientific literature. It concludes with some tips on how to ensure the successful and beneficial inclusion of greenery.

    Nesting behaviour of broiler breeders

    broiler breeders - nesting behaviour - genetics - nest design - housing - climate
    Broilers have been selected for growth related characteristics, which are negatively correlated to reproductive traits. This genetic background creates challenges in broiler breeders, as the hens do not make optimal use of the nests provided. This project aims to investigate what factors determine nesting behaviour, i.e. where a broiler breeder hen prefers to lay her eggs. Factors such as genetic background, social interactions, physical characteristics of the nest and climate might interfere with the natural nesting behaviour of the hen. Also fundamental trade-offs between different motivations, such as hunger, comfort and safety, might influence nesting behaviour. Behaviour and use of space will be measured in experimental set-ups in order to gain insight in the importance of different system components. This knowledge will be used to optimise housing conditions and develop strategies that stimulate the hen to lay her egg in the nest. The performance of this improved system will be tested in field experiments to investigate the transferability of results from experimental to field conditions.

    Groen in en rondom woonhuizen en appartementen is goed voor het (leef)klimaat binnen en buiten de woning. Het heeft een positief effect op de gezondheid en het algehele welbevinden van bewoners en bezoekers en verhoogt de waarde van het vastgoed. Dit document biedt meer inzicht in de voordelen van groen in relatie tot wonen en welbevinden, inclusief verwijzingen naar de wetenschappelijke onderbouwing. Het document sluit af met tips die helpen om groen succesvol en volwaardig toe te passen

    Krakers wonen vaak op de meest fantastische plekken, zoals oude forten, monumentale panden, oude boerderijtjes, kloosters of treinloodsen. Het komt voor dat krakers zich vestigen in minder fantasievolle plekken als een "jaren '80 flat", maar er lijkt wel een voorkeur uit te gaan naar plekken met karakter. Hoe zit dat nou? Een visie op de kraker anno 2010, vlak voor een nieuw overheidsbeleid t.a.v. leegstand, waar een kraker geen woonrecht meer heeft.

    Op het ADM-terrein (Amsterdam) wonen ongeveer honderd mensen, al fluctureert dat aantal door de seizoenen heen van ongeveer tachtig tot circa hondervijftig. De mensen in de ADM zijn creatieve mensen, naar eigen zeggen 'mensen die iets willen en iets kunnen'. Zo hebben bewoners zelf gezorgd dat ze zijn aangesloten op riolering, water en elektriciteit. De golfresidentie (Dronten) bestaat uit vierhonderdvijftig woningen, onderverdeeld in driehonderdzestig vrijstaande villa's en vijf woontorens met negentig appartementen. Om de huizen op de residentie ligt een achttien holes golfbaan. Het totale terrein is 86 hectares groot waarvan zo'n 56 hectares als golfterrein is ingericht

    De Wetenschapswinkel van Wageningen Universiteit en Researchcentrum heeft voor Stichting CON (Stichting Coördinatie Wonen, Welzijn en Zorg Ouderen Noordwijk) uitgezocht op welke wijze zij welzijnsdiensten en producten kan inzetten, om de kans op ziekte en de behoefte aan zorg en ondersteuning bij ouderen te reduceren. Bovendien is onderzocht welke interventies mogelijk geschikt zijn voor de doelgroep. De hoofddoelstelling was het identificeren van specifieke speerpunten op het gebied van wonen, welzijn en zorg die nog beter aansluiten bij de behoeftes van ouderen in het algemeen, en bovendien mogelijk kostenbesparend zijn
