Watch on-demand now to learn modern day broiler brooding management techniques.
With today’s improved genetic capabilities and the fast growth of birds, more time is being spent during the critical brooding phase. As a result, ensuring a good start in poultry production can have a significant impact on the future health and performance of the birds. Environmental management of the chicken house includes many components, such as temperature, relative humidity, ventilation lighting, feed and water. A better understanding of these components work both individually and together as a guide to reach to best management practices.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Simple efforts such as paying attention to what happens in a chicken house and taking care of the management needs of broilers can have a significant impact on performance.
- Investing towards new technologies, is important and valuable but it is not the only way to reach performance potential in broilers.
- Critical control points to keep in mind for a good brooding are, heaters, floor temperature, relative humidity and temperature probes, ventilation components, drinkers, feeders, etc.
- To ensure a robust start for chicks, it is essential to have a systematic and efficient management program in place.
