Dutch Restrict Maximum Building Size for Poultry Houses
DUTCH RESTRICT MAXIMUM BUILDING SIZE FOR POULTRY HOUSES
November 29, 2011
Future livestock farm projects in the Netherlands will most probably have to be built within size limits, the Dutch government has announced.
In plans announced last week, Dutch agriculture deputy minister Henk
Bleker is working on legislation to limit the size of farms in specific
locations. These limits will depend on ethical reasons, reasons of public
health or social-economic effects.
