Sažetak

Litter quality is one of the main factors affecting broiler welfare and productivity. Intense growth and development in broilers result in prolonged period of rest, which in combination with poor litter quality favours the occurence of footpad dermatitis, hock burns and breast blisters. Contact dermatitis negatively affects the broiler health and welfare, meat quality and safety, and production economics. The main causes of contact dermatitis are moisture and irritating chemical substances in the litter, along with a number of factors affecting its occurrence. Regarding the impact of litter depth on the occurence of contact dermatitis, previous studies have found different, even contradictory results, which require a further investigation. Additional emphasis needs to be placed on studies investigating the impact of litter depth on the broiler productivity and meat quality and safety.
