PPILOW’s People: Emy Ridderbos!

This spring, Emy Ridderbos joined the UU team. She is an Applied Biology student at the HAS Green Academy. Her internship is established in collaboration with Herenboeren. In this on-farm study, Emy is comparing the behaviour of laying hen hybrids and dual-purpose hens in mobile houses, with the aim to design the most optimal conditions in these systems to prevent feather pecking and cannibalism, especially when the birds need to stay indoors to prevent the spread of Avian Influenza.
