The aim of this study is to present the technological viability of sliced-dedusted straw as one of the alternative types of bedding material in broiler chicken production process. Results are based on the results from national research project supported and financed by Slovenian Agency for Agricul-tural Markets. The input data and results are based on the real case studies (two farms) from Slovenia. One of the farms represents the extensive and second one represents the intensive production type. In the course of this paper authors explain technological benefits from using sliced-dedusted straw as the alternative bedding material compared to wood shavings. The novelty of the research is in creating the assessment protocol which includes the ethological animal standards. Results show significant priori-ties which are shown through the injury reduction on animals at the end of the feeding period.
