According to two Dutch studies, both animal welfare and
the environment profit from eco-friendly farming.
Housing animals biologically causes more natural behaviour, especially in
pigs and poultry, when compared to conventional methods. Biological poultry
farming is very different from conventional farming as the housing method
allows the chickens explore. In a more spacious environment, the animals are
less aggressive than their caged counterparts.
Coincidentally, figures were released in the Netherlands that in 2006 Dutch
consumers bought about 5% more biological meat in comparison to
Altogether, Dutch consumers paid €57.6 million for biologically
produced meat. About 20.5% (equalling to €11.8 million) of that was for pork,
18.6% (€10.7 million) for poultry.
