Aviagen broiler handbook revisions
Aviagen has released revised broiler nutrition specifications in their Broiler Handbooks for the Arbor Acres, Indian River and Ross brands, as it continually strives to provide global practical management advice for broiler farmers.The number of live weight target categories for the nutrient recommendations has been increased to better reflect the range of product mix occurring in the global marketplace. There are 5 weight target categories ranging from < 1.6kg to 4.0kg. Amino Acid and energy levels modifications have been made based on Aviagen’s own internal research. Recommendations for calcium and phosphorus have decreased significantly.Producing the Handbook involves regional input from the Aviagen technical teams around the world. The global expert groups on hatcheries, nutrition, technical transfer and veterinary services also played a crucial role in the development of the Handbook.
