Samenvatting

Manual or visual observations still form the basis of a considerable part of the phenotypic records that are collected in broiler breeding programs, even though these observations can be time-consuming and subjective. In this project, we will investigate the implementation of technologies to automatically phenotype existing and novel traits in broilers, including activity, leg health and body weight. Through implementation of the recordings in breeding programs, this project can contribute to improved health and robustness of broilers.
