Interesting article about Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance. Contact details of the company and the individual should be available for readers to establish contact.
An excellent work about Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance. Minutes matter like amino acids, minerals requirements, etc have been emphasized.
Very good article about Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance. I read this article in India also. One thing about calcium hunger is that excess of calcium in feed will depress slight feed consumption, for ex. if a layer feed has 5 calcium, what will be the effect.
SIR, good article about Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance. I want to know how much protein is perfect in all three stages of feed. And about fat additives.
Assalam - o- alikum to every body. This is really a good article I read and try it to check our feed formulation it is therefore request you kindly inform about the role of APC in broiler feed formulation.
The article Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance by Dr. K.R.Gunasekar is a good effort and an informative tool for the nutritionist to consider. The tables regarding Nutritonal Standard would be perfect if it is included the level of Linoleic acid and fat contents with respect to such higher levels of ME and amino acid ratio.
Further it would be beneficial if the season and types of houses should also be mentioned for such nutritient specification.
Moreover under the heading of Summer Management the author suggests to increase the fiber level in the diet but under the mentioned nutrient specification, it would be difficult to formulate the high density rations with high fiber level.Under these circumstances it would be beneficial if the inclusion of other enzymes for NSP should also be mentioned.
Overall it is a good article to achieve the best goal while considering the economic impact.
It is a beneficial article for all involved in poultry nutrition. It would have been more interesting if the writer provided duration of feeding of prestarter, starter and finisher rations. Furthermore, it would have been more interesting if the author could quote rations for summer season as it would not be possible to feed such given energy rich rations in summer.
Kindly advise on this. I am a small scale farmer in broiler production. Presently my formula for broiler starter is:
full aft soya 350
fish meal 40
corn oval 34
bone meal 40
oyster shell 20
indomie noodles waste 40
The paper was very useful. I would know about application of calcium salts of fatty acids (or fat powder) in poultry diets that is usual at present in Iran. I know this product is prepared for ruminants (esp dairy cattle), but in order to easy transport and mixing (in diet) is using, altough our experiments were shown CSFA had a lower ME in comparison with soy oil significantly.

We need this formula to break even in profitability in this broiler business as the cost of feed is high.
I agree that this article is very useful. I would like to offer a reply to Dr. M. Borji from Iran (under user name Behnam Saremi) who would like to know about the application of calcium salts of fatty acids (or fat powder) in poultry diets.
Firstly we must say that these fats will never have the same energy value as oils - which are 100% fat - but they can and are used as an alternative that due to it’s dry, solid form allows an increase in the limit of addition of fat to high-energy diets when the addition of more oil is impossible. We can count on a number of further advantages:
It improves the durability of the granule in feed (if pelleted).
Decreases the percentage loss of feeds (less fines/powder wastage).
As a solid source, it is possible to use in any production process even high temperature pelleting as it doesnt melt.
It allows storage and conservation of fat and feed for longer periods of time.
It allows a reduction in the level of addition of expensive oils to priming diets and so improves the subjective quality of the carcasses (longer shelf life in storage/shops).
It improves the quality of abdominal and subcutaneous fat, making it more stable at higher temperatures in the carcasses.
It does not affect the profile of fatty acids of intramuscular fat, retaining the succulence and tenderness of the meat.
It requires no special storage (no tanks, no silos, no pipes, no sprayers and no heaters, etc for application).
It does not go rancid and has a long shelf life.
All in all a very reasonable alternative, of course calcium levels should be adjusted as necessary as these salts are generally about 9% calcium content.
I would like to know more about the use of dry fats in broiler diets. Can you please send me information on specific products that are available?
The article about Formulating Feed for Broiler Performance is good, please keep it up.
Dear sir ,
My main issues are about the raw materials fomula about the Dairy meal, Layers mash
