Animal welfare is an important issue in egg production, especially in times of avian influenza outbreaks. As cage alternative systems become more common, it is important to consider how these systems may affect the welfare of layers and how appropriate biosecurity measures can be implemented to prevent the spread of disease.
Alternative systems to cages, such as cage-free management and aviary systems, can provide more space and a more natural environment for layers. However, these systems can also present challenges in terms of biosecurity and disease management.
It is essential that egg producers implement adequate biosecurity measures to prevent the spread of diseases, such as avian influenza. This may include implementing vector control measures, such as waste disposal and regular cleaning and disinfection of production areas, as well as limiting contact with wild birds and other sources of disease.
In addition, it is important to pay attention to the welfare of layers in alternative systems to cages. This may include providing adequate space, eliminating painful practices such as beak trimming and ensuring adequate access to fresh feed and water.
Alternative systems to cages can also present challenges in terms of management and staff training. It is essential that workers are trained in proper bird handling and the implementation of biosecurity measures to prevent the spread of disease.
