Causes of differences in energy consumption on farms with laying hens



Causes of differences in energy consumption on farms with laying hens



Publikatie Landbouw Economisch Instituut ( 3.156): 36pp.



Thirty farms with laying hens in the Netherlands were studied in order to obtain some understanding of energy consumption. It was important to take stock of energy consumption and possible management factors which could explain differences in consumption. Most of the farms used virtually only electricity. Average consumption on farms with battery housing was 1650 kw per hen place per annum, with a spread of 140 to 3280 kw per hen place per annum.
