Climate change Industrial Poultry


How do farmers respond to the poultry industry during climate change?


Dr. Oleksii Orlov, PhD in Agriculture



Many agro-industrialists have already experienced some negative changes in climatic conditions. In recent years, drought and elevated temperatures have been observed not only in the southern and eastern regions, where this is typical, but also in other, more northern regions, where the lack of moisture had not previously limited the profits of agricultural producers and farmers. This affects not only to the productivity and production volumes of the main grain and fodder crops and their high prices, but also the poultry industry as a whole. With climate change, the risks of doing agricultural business increase significantly. In such conditions, it is important to organize the conduct of the agricultural business and take measures to reduce possible risks.

One way to counter the effects of negative climate change on poultry farming is to understand how these changes will affect the industry and how to minimize these negative effects. In the photo - grazing organic egg chickens


Birds are especially vulnerable to climate change, because the normal life of birds can occur only in narrow temperature ranges. Agricultural holdings companies and poultry farmers should consider how to adapt the business to such climate changes now for reduce the subsequent negative impact to profits and for save money, reduce risks and worry about the future of the business.

Negative climate changes increase risks for agriculture, but at the same time, they lead to an increase in demand for food and meat products in particular, i.e., to obtain high profits for those poultry farmers who were able to adapt to such climate changes and build correctly of effective business.

There are both risks and additional opportunities ...


Eco-friendly poultry products and eggs are very popular in today's global market



  • Savings - energy costs for heating can be reduced, since warm winters reduce the need for energy for heating

  • Also during the warm in winter period, it becomes possible to keep some species of poultry outdoors all year round

  • Not in all regions drought is observed - in some areas more rain begins to occur, while the average annual temperatures increase, and this creates (especially in a temperate climate), better conditions for local production of soy and corn, i.e. crops that are demanding to heat

  • Local production of soy and corn, reduces the cost of feed logistics and reduce the number of "feed miles" and "food miles". “Food miles” is a term for the distance the food is transported — from the moment it is produced — until it reaches the consumer. The same for feed transporting - "feed miles"

  • Meat products can rise in price, poultry farming can become more profitable, and the yield of heat-loving soybeans (the most important and expensive component of animal feed) can increase - by 10-15% due to an increase in CO2 in the atmosphere

  • In the context of global climate change, one of the most important factors affecting the profitability of a business is genetics - farmers who use good genetics adapted to existing conditions for poultry production will receive more profit

  • In any case, farmers and agro-industrialists who take risks into account and plan their investments taking into account climate change and use professional consulting from Agricultural Consulting will have significant competitive advantages


Breeds of turkeys (and other farm birds), with good genetics, will always have advantages over ordinary breeds. They are less sick. They are better adapted to modern conditions of industrial production and feeding, have higher productivity. In conditions of climate change - good genetics is a great competitive advantage for any agricultural businessman and farmer



  • Maintaining productivity - climatic systems in poultry farms should maintain the necessary optimal seasonal temperature and reduce the risks of heat stress for poultry

  • Increased investment in ventilation systems and cooling

  • Investing in thermal insulation during the reconstruction of old farms or the creation of new (for example, thermal insulation of the roof using polyurethane foam or sandwich panels)

  • Decreased reproductive ability of birds

  • More dramatic incidents, such as hurricanes, tornadoes or heavy rains, hail, floods, droughts, can increase bird stress, can affect crops productivity, loss of poultry, and lead to direct material losses or reduced profitability

  • Increase in various expenses, including electricity costs for cooling poultry farms in the summer

  • It is possible to reduce the landing density at extreme temperatures, and this potentially increases costs

  • The need for active exhaust ventilation or cooling may become a necessary and essential condition for the transport of live poultry

  • Increased need for ventilation, in order to reduce humidity in poultry farms

  • Designing of new farms, farm territories and premises for poultry, construction and operation of all related infrastructure, taking into account extreme weather conditions, that is, in such a way as to cope with more intense weather events and increased rainfall

  • When planning a business, you should consider farm construction options that can reduce climate risks and with large investments in various adaptation systems to climate change and extreme conditions, for example, investments in drainage systems to reduce the impact of extreme floods and frequent rainfall on your business or provide for the rainwater harvesting

  • All of the above also applies to feed production - the entire feed supply system should be planned taking into account the changing climatic conditions, for example, provide for investments in innovations and drip irrigation, etc.


A modern poultry farm should be built with the expectation of a hot summer, and climate change towards warming, that is, with a fairly good level of thermal insulation. For this purpose, you can successfully use modern materials. Ventilation / cooling and fogging plants are also required. The use of biomass and other sources of green energy for energy purposes on the farm is also promising (several times more profitable than gas heating and heating using traditional energy sources)



Business adaptation:

  • Think about what you will do in case of a hurricane / very strong hail, rain or snow, or flood / extreme heat or drought / etc. - this will help to think over and foresee what can reduce the impact of such extreme conditions on your business. Imagine that an extreme situation occurred (power outage, tornado, hurricane, lack of communication, drought, snow drifts - and a combination of these factors, etc.), what you will do ... This will allow you to be prepared for such a situation. And it’s better to invite for this purpose an expert of Agricultural Consulting

  • Revise the design of new farms (or reconstruction), taking into account the possibility of constructing structures that will more effectively cope with new climatic changes and extreme weather conditions

  • Upgrade existing equipment or install new equipment to cope with new extreme climatic events

  • Use energy efficiency audits and renewable energy sources (such as solar or wind energy) on poultry farms

  • Consider using recycling boilers for biomass or anaerobic digestion of bird droppings or alternative uses of droppings

  • Have contingency funds and contingency insurance

  • Reduce climate risks through globalization of business


Many poultry species that require fresh water or grassland to grow successfully may be at risk by reducing the amount of fresh water available


Although many of the potential negative effects of climate change have not yet occurred, some of them may be more or less likely to occur in the short, medium or long term. Therefore, it is important to think ahead about the future, especially with regard to issues such as business planning, creating a new effective business and agribusiness in general ... Professional consulting from Agricultural Consulting will also help to be highly effective!
