Organic and low-input outdoor farming solutions to improve welfare of poultry and pigs
Consumers are moving away from industrialised bulk production towards high quality organic or low-input outdoor farming, which uses management practices and alternative remedies to manage the health of their animals. Organic pig and poultry production is expanding globally to meet this demand. The EU-funded PPILOW project will co-construct solutions to improve the welfare of poultry and pigs reared in organic and low-input outdoor farming systems. It will involve all actors of the production chain – from farmers to consumers and scientists to policymakers. The project will design assessment tools, innovative breeding and rearing strategies, and techniques for improving the welfare of animals. To ensure rapid uptake, the project plans to disseminate activities through trainings, videos and field partners.
