A comparative financial analysis of investment in broiler farming between evaporative cooling house system and open house system based on animal welfare: a case study of broiler farms in Lopburi Province



A comparative financial analysis of investment in broiler farming between evaporative cooling house system and open house system based on animal welfare: a case study of broiler farms in Lopburi Province



Proceedings of 43rd Kasetsart University Annual Conference, Thailand, 1-4 February, 2005 Subject: Agricultural Extension and Communication; Social Sciences; Economics; Business Administration; Humanities; Home Economics: 439-447



This study compares the financial investments in broiler farms with an evaporative cooling house system and those with an open house system, and evaluates poultry farming operations in terms of animal welfare. The study utilizes data for the year 2003 from 52 contract farms of a private company in Lopburi province, Thailand. Forty seven farms use the open house system, while the rest use the evaporative cooling house system.
