1. Identifying the main turkey welfare challenges under Norwegian production conditions based on a) investigations of prevalence and risk factors associated with welfare relevant slaughterhouse data and welfare issues as assessed by the “transect walk” method, b) the associations between on-farm measures and slaughterhouse data, and c) evaluation of the feasibility and potential for improvement of recordings post mortem as a basis for the novel AWP for turkeys.
2. Identifying “best practice management factors” based on focus group discussions and interviews with farmers with above-average production results.
3. Disseminating results through relevant channels, e.g. the project group currently developing the AWP for turkeys, producers, scientific community, authorities and the common public.
