Summary

Different types of silages can be fed to broilers several times per day. Silage contributes nutrients to the diet and occupies the broilers improving welfare and reducing the risk of feather pecking.
The roughage/silage is fed several times daily with a mechanical suspension system (robot) on a veranda just outside the broiler house. This stimulates the broilers to leave the house to eat the silage and to increase the use of the outdoor area.
Using a mechanical system to allocate silage makes it possible to feed several times a day and supply the broilers with material with a rough structure, which is considered to have positive effect on development of the intestinal system and intestinal health.
Target groups are organic farmers and advisors.

Summary translation

Forskellige typer ensilage kan fodres til slagtekyllinger flere gange om dagen, bidrage med næringsstoffer og som beskæftigelsesmateriale, der aktiverer slagtekyllingerne, hvilket reducerer risikoen for fjerpilning og forbedrer velfærden.
Grovfoder / ensilage tildeles flere gange dagligt med mekaniske hængebanesystemer (robot) på en veranda lige uden for slagtekyllingens hus. Dette stimulerer slagtekyllingerne til at forlade huset for at spise ensilage og øge brugen af udendørsarealet, der ligger i forlængelse af verandaen.
Ved hjælp af et mekanisk system til tildeling af ensilage er det muligt at fodre flere gange dagligt, hvilket forsyner slagtekyllingerne med en grov struktur, hvilket anses for at have en positiv effekt på udviklingen af tarmsystemet og påvirke tarmsundheden positivt.
Målgrupper er økologiske landmænd og konsulenter.
