Aviagen, the world’s leading poultry breeding company, has added a new How-To series for broilers to its existing literature library. The Broiler How-Tos are now available on the Aviagen website.

How-To, on-farm tools now cover all areas of the production process with documents on topics of hatchery management and broiler and broiler breeder management, as well as ventilation.

The newly published broiler series has been designed to give customers practical, hands-on, step-by-step instructions on key management practices. They can be used as training documents or as everyday support for farmers showing what to do and how to do it, as well as providing help with any troubleshooting.

Topics include How To...

  • Set up a spot brooding circle
  • Arrange whole house brooding
  • Monitor temperature and relative humidity
  • Assess crop fill
  • Bulk weigh broilers between 0 and 21 days
  • Individually weigh broilers from 21-28 days onwards

“Our customer feedback tells us that broiler management is a significant area of focus because it has a direct influence on production costs and profitability,” explains Michael Longley from Aviagen’s global technical transfer team. “The Broiler How-Tos are therefore a valuable addition to our literature resources.”
