Broiler welfare notices

Veterinary inspectors who observe issues with broiler welfare should report their findings

  • to the broiler breeder and
  • the Regional State Administrative Agency in whose jurisdiction the broilers are kept.

Broiler welfare notices can be submitted by email to the registry of the competent Regional State Administrative Agency. A link to the contact information of Regional State Administrative Agencies’ registries is provided at the bottom of this page.

We review the findings and decide whether or not broiler stocking density needs to be reduced on the farm in question. If necessary, we can also conduct an animal welfare inspection. 

Broiler stocking density affects the animals’ health and welfare. An assessment of broiler welfare must always take into account the flock mortality rate and foot health, which is checked in connection with meat inspections.
