Poultry Farming

Fifty years ago, layer and broiler breeding in the Netherlands was spread over more than 10 000 small and medium-sized breeding farms, usually family owned. Nowadays this number has been drastically reduced and only a few hundred layer and broiler breeding companies are left (including ‘grand grandparents’ and ‘grandparents’). The poultry farming sector includes farms producing parents for broiler and layer strains, both as farms producing consumption eggs and poultry meat.
