Following the Annual Conference, Solutions and Policy events, this online event live from our studio in Brussels will summarise and conclude all the ForumforAg activities during the month of March.

The EU Commission is currently consulting on the EU animal welfare legislation and has included amongst other elements the option to prohibit the culling of male chicks in egg production. Furthermore, Germany and France have adopted national legislation, which limits this practice.

This solutions workshop will focus on the ethics side of a potential EU ban on chick culling in egg production; while analysing the potential of the implementation of cost-free solutions for hatcheries, lowering the threshold for uptake of innovation in the chain
