The booklet, translated from the original Danish by Lindsay Whistance, as part of the OK-Net Ecofeed project, focuses on designing free-range areas for laying hens in order to:

  1. Increase the farmer's satisfaction in his/her work;
  2. Improve the welfare of laying hens;
  3. Promote a positive image of animal husbandry in organic farming and
  4. Meet societal expectations regarding organic farming.

The booklet includes different planting methods, instructions on designing pathways, on selecting plants, windbreaks, etc. It further describes how to improve the animals' use of free-range areas as well as promote biodiversity on the farm.
