Poulpharm has extensive experience in poultry diagnostic and in performing animal infection studies. Although Poulpharm has an animal welfare policy when conducting studies, parameters for animal welfare related to physical health and affective state are not included in animal studies. Because of the intensification of poultry meat production globally, the importance of animal welfare is increasing. Including animal welfare parameters in animal studies at Poulpharm would give an important added value to the studies performed.
In this project Poulpharm in collaboration with Ghent University aims on the one hand to develop sensitive analytical methods and continuous scoring systems to measure conventional non-sensor-based welfare indicators in broiler chickens under various experimental conditions, and on the other hand to explore more automated sensor-based monitoring protocols for evaluating poultry behavior and welfare under experimental and field conditions.
