Development of a training tool that can simulate how changes to the internal and external shed conditions can affect chicken welfare and performance, as well as environmental outcomes, will be very beneficial for industry as a training tool. This resource will bring together research results into one usable tool. This proposal will deliver under the current RD&E objective to ensure research adoption via extension and communication. This project will also provide recommendations on extension pathways to implement a shed management simulation training tool to all industry participants.

This proposal seeks to identify what tools are currently available that incorporate key internal and external environmental factors, how manipulation of these variables can affect internal conditions such as litter conditions, air quality and chicken welfare parameters, and if they may be suitable for, or adapted to Australian conditions.
