The GroupHouseNet aim is to provide the European livestock industry with innovations in breeding and management for pigs and poultry that are needed for a successful transition to large group housing systems without necessitating painful tail docking and beak trimming.

Getting started: European collaboration to reduce 
Kick-off for the GroupHouseNet working groups!

We held the third Management Committee meeting of GroupHouseNet on November 10th followed by working group meetings on November 10th and 11th, 2016 in the wonderful city of Belgrade, at the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Belgrade. Representatives of 24 countries were present and contributed to discussions of management and implementation of the Action.  The focus of this meeting was to get the three GroupHouseNet working groups on the road, and we think we have succeeded in that mission.
