Abstract

The demand for turkey meat has risen considerably and continually during the past few years. From 1995 to 1996 alone per capita consumptionin Germany rose by 10%. At the same time home production dropped by more than 7% and imports of turkey meat increased by more than 15%. This shows that turkeys production has moved abroad and suggests that thefattening of turkeys in Germany has lost the battle in an internationally open market. The associated conditions (laws, regulations, licences, regional and local arbitrary decisions) are a major cause of this. In addition to this extreme demands are sometimes made by individual company groupings which, if realised, and particularly against the background of internationally interlinked markets, will lead to considerable competitive disadvantages and thus to further transfer of production abroad. From the point of view of animal welfare this transfer of turkey production abroad is against any improvement in conditions for these birds as turkeys are held under less restrictive conditions in other countries. The present paper develops a method of keeping turkeys that suits their species and this is presented against the background of European and German animal welfare objectives on the one hand and on the basis of scientifically ascertained knowledge and existing experience.
