Bas Rodenburg: “Best practice hens” project in Europe

This note introduces you to the interview with Dr. Bas Rodenburg, professor of animal welfare at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

The interviews were developed by Ad Bal, the editor of aviNews International, who has more than 20 years of experience as an editor in de poultry sector.

Dr. Rodenburg is the coordinator of the project called “Best Practice Hens,” which is a European initiative. He explained that one of the reasons for creating this project is the increase of cage-free hens and the variations in the production systems among countries regarding the percentage of farms that are changing to cage-free.
