Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the factors affecting animal welfare such as housing, care and administration and some technical breeding applications in traditional sheep breeding enterprises in terms of animal welfare standards. After the generation of qualitative and quantitative variables an observation form was developed for the collection of data pertaining to the welfare standards of 100 sheep breeding enterprises in 19 villages of Şuhut, Emirdağ, Çay and Sultandağı towns of Afyonkarahisar province. Accordingly, it was determined that the average living area per sheep was 0.76 m2. The average temperature in the enterprises was detected as 21.06oC while the average moisture was calculated as 43.20%. Additionally, it was detected that the average birth rate per enterprise was 79.25%. Moreover, it was identified that no health control was conducted in 20% of the enterprises. It was also discovered that the average number of employees per enterprise was 4.57 person. In addition to this, it was determined that the employees of the enterprises had had no prior training on animal welfare

Abstract

Bu araştırmanın amacı, geleneksel yetiştiricilik yapılan koyunculuk işletmelerinde hayvan refahını etkileyen barındırma, bakım ve idare ile bazı pratik yetiştirme işlemlerinin refah standartları yönünden değerlendirilmesidir. Refah standartlarına ilişkin verilerin toplanması için nicel ve nitel değişkenlerden oluşan gözlem formu geliştirilmiş ve Afyonkarahisar iline bağlı Şuhut, Emirdağ, Çay ve Sultandağı ilçelerindeki 19 köyde faaliyet gösteren toplam 100 koyunculuk işletmesinde uygulama gerçekleştirilmiştir. Buna göre, koyun başına ortalama alan 0.76 m2 belirlenmiştir. İşletmelerdeki ortalama sıcaklık 21.06 oC ve ortalama nem %43.20 olarak tespit edilmiştir. Diğer taraftan, işletme başına ortalama doğum oranının %79.25 olduğu ve işletmelerin %20’sinde herhangi bir sağlık kontrolü yapılmadığı saptanmıştır. Ayrıca, ortalama çalışan sayısının işletme başına 4.57 kişi olduğu ve hayvan refahına ilişkin daha önce herhangi bir eğitim almadıkları belirlenmiştir
