There are calculations in the literature to calculate the energy requirement per given weight. Brody formula is body weight raised to the power of 0.65. the feed for added growth is calculated at 1.5 FCR. an other way we tried is full feeding of broilers with pre starter and starter. the approximate feed consumption on 22nd day is around 80gms. we found that the daily feed on ad libitum feed at 40 ...

I came across a serious problem of vent picking in a broiler flock. We found it to be due to improper grinding of feed. Oversized maize was left in the feeders. Feed consumed got imbalanced. Replacing the feed with properly ground feed solved the problem.

If the flock is maturing earlier with high body weight, going up fast with daily jumps above 3% better we hold the light till the flock stops going up. check the problem is true prolapse or vent picking. Adding salt to water 0.5gm pet liter or up to 4kg per ton (total not additional) will help reduce picking. Debeaking at this stage will reduce production but picking will be controlled. The aggres ...

Generally, the pfu available in Marek's vaccine are more than prescribed. most important is the brooder house. it the house had earlier incidence and not properly cleaned and rested, the chicks are exposed to field virus which reaches the receptors of the cell surface faster th ...

Salmonella is a vertically transmitted bacterial disease. Regular testing of breeding stocks by plate agglutination test using colored antigen is quick and even large flocks can be tested. Elimination of affected flocks prevents the spread. Plant extracts that are not sterilized and handled improperly can be a source of Salmonella infection to a healthy flock. One should be extra careful.

Broiler producers are not missing antibiotic growth promoters. The annual genetic improvement by breeders all in all out rearing and improved biosecurity is helping a lot. Broiler flocks do get into problems due to slips in management protocols. these are being exploited by quacks who suggest plant extractions and plant products as a whole.In india turmeric and garlic are being used directly in fe ...

This can cause resistance for the second treatment.Animal products are blamed for nothing. any way good has happened. Biosecurity all over has gone up. Selec ...
