Abstract

The public opinion is skeptical with regard to modern intensive animal husbandry. Society asks much more for production systems with high standards in animal welfare with grazing, straw beds and outdoor climate housing. In this article the competitiveness of intensive animal husbandry versus higherstandards in animal welfare and the economic differences are analyzed. Theselected production systems are dairy, beef and pork. The results show tendencies for economic disadvantages for the extensive systems due to higher tabour costs, additional handling of straw and especially if performance declines for the production systems with higher animal standards. But there are low cost production systems under development. One example is outdoor climate housing for pork production which seems to be economically competitive. Research and development should support such advancements and the adoption of new reasonable production systems serving animal welfare.
