This project is the final phase of a larger program that involved two other projects conducted sequentially since 1998. The first project aimed to develop draft documentation for a welfare audit for the chicken meat industry that covered the hatchery, broilers, breeder rearers and breeder layers. The second part of the project was to finalise the draft documentation, undertake an on-farm evaluation and prepare documentation for the pick-up, transport and processing sectors of the chicken meat industry. These projects were completed in February 2001. This final project was to attempt to implement the audit process within a number of companies in the industry.
