Re: Forum: A Pocket Guide to Broiler Management
you have touched important areas of broiler
production. My worries are how my rural farmers would adopt brooding when electrical supplies are quite not uniform and gas supplies are also not uniform. Desi arrangements are mostly practiced and ventilation
cause a problem .
is recommended as per disease prevalence. As regards nutrition we can have prestarter feed
23%cp and 2900-3000ME followed by starter and finisher. This may save cost if we reduce protien and improve ME. amino acid inclusions are showing better results when CP is considered.
3rd how to ensure availability of standard litter is now getting problem and their disposal when litters are not recycled? thus i feel the need of cage system is the final answer in coming time for broiler also which demand sophistication too for control of environment. I am hopeful some changes are bound to become necessary in housing system of broiler flocks which may demand higher investments for gaining the best performance from hi-tech genotypes. with regds: dr m rath, india an consultant on poultry
