Summary

Extended and short abstracts for the conference "Dioxin 2014": A feeding experiment was set up on an organic farm where four groups of layers were used with 37 hens in each.
Two groups of hens received a supplement of 15 g larvae per hen per day, while two control groups received
only compound feed. The duration of the feeding experiment was two month. Samples of fly larvae, poultry
manure, compost and compound feed as well as pooled egg samples from each group were analysed for levels of
dioxins and PCB
