Not so many years ago it was customary for poultry farmers in Western Australia to clean out the droppings from their poultry sheds at daily or weekly intervals. Now, however, the majority of commercial poultry farmers clean out their sheds once yearly. This tremendous saving in labour has been achieved through the introduction of the deep litter system which entails no sacrifices of hygiene or comfort and which actually contributes to a general overall improvement in management.
