Summary

For farms with spare manure capacity and enough level areas for the stables, chicken fattening can be an interesting operation. The leaflet provides an overview of on-farm fattening of broiler chickens from the market situation, production and husbandry to feeding and business management. The publication also provides information on animal health and welfare, disease prevention and measures against predators. Although the leaflet is aimed at Swiss organic farmer and advisors it would be useful in other European countries, as well.

Das FiBL-Merkblatt gibt einen Überblick zur Pouletmast von der Marktsituation über Produktion und Haltung bis hin zur Fütterung und Betriebswirtschaft. Darüber hinaus informiert die Publikation über Krankheitsvorsorge und Massnahmen gegen Beutegreifer.
L'élevage de poulets peut être une branche de production intéressante à condition que les exigences concernant le bilan des engrais de ferme soient remplies et que suffisamment de terrains plats pour l'installation des poulaillers soient disponibles. L'élevage de poulets bio garantit non seulement une garde respectueuse des animaux, mais fournit également une viande dont la qualité est très appréciée des consommateurs.
