Sustainable chicken housing focus of new UC Davis study

Sustainable chicken housing focus of new UC Davis study

DAVIS - The University of California, Davis, and Michigan State University have received $6 million from the Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply to support research on the sustainability of laying hen housing in the United States.

The first study of its kind, the three-year "CSES Laying Hen Housing Research Project" will explore the interactions and tradeoffs among food safety, worker safety, environmental impact, hen health and welfare, and food affordability aspects of three different housing systems. Information generated by the research is expected to help egg purchasers and producers make objective, science-based decisions as the egg industry evolves in response to consumer needs and desires.

The goal of the Coalition for Sustainable Egg Supply is to evaluate the viability of various laying hen housing systems.

UC Davis to shut down Whole Earth Festival dance venue

UC Davis to shut down Whole Earth Festival dance venue

DAVIS - UC Davis officials announced Thursday they will shut down the Whole Earth Festival's DJ Stage beginning next year, in the wake of the campus police department's investigations of three violent crimes, including the reported rape of a 16-year-old girl, in and around the music venue last weekend.

"We are sending a message that people cannot come to our campus and behave this way," said Fred Wood, vice chancellor for Student Affairs. "It can't continue and it won't be tolerated. We need to create a safe environment for everyone at this university."

Whole Earth Festival is a student-run program that is held during Mother's Day weekend every year.
