Description

POMURJE REGION, SLOVENIA – Members of the Macedonian delegation are shown free range farming production of broilers at a Slovenian agricultural cooperative. Preservation of the environment is one of the main principles in Slovenian poultry production. Slovenian poultry farmers are motivated to practice outdoor, environmentally sustainable breeding due to the five Eurocent per kg additional price gain compared to conventional poultry breeders.

The visit is part of a two-year project funded through FAO Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP/MCD/3605) aimed at making the Macedonian broiler subsector competitive, green and inclusive.
