Broilers

Broiler farming is one of the fastest-growing protein-producing industries and key to ensuring global food security. To satisfy the growing market demand, broiler farms must produce more efficiently while using fewer resources. Broiler farmers face many challenges, from reducing the use of antibiotics and keeping their flocks healthy, to implementing good management practices. To improve profitability, farmers need to have a deep understanding of their profit drivers.

Improving broiler performance

When an animal can be fed efficiently while maintaining good health, this positively impacts both performance and profitability. Since feed costs make up most of a livestock farmer’s total costs, ensuring optimum nutrient intake that translates to growth is crucial. Nutrient losses for other physiological processes has a significant impact on production efficiency.

Broiler feed and water management

Water is the most important nutrient for broilers. The nutritional quality of feed, its safety and delivery form all play a crucial role in ensuring a healthy and regulated feed intake. Excellent microbial and chemical quality in water is important as broilers consume twice as much water as feed. Water is a key factor in thermoregulation and as a carrier for additives, such as medication, supplements, etc.

Antimicrobial resistance in broilers

Reducing reliance on antimicrobials is crucial in tackling the challenge of antimicrobial resistance. Limiting preventable antibiotics allows essential antibiotics to remain effective when needed to support broiler and human health. The emphasis on this matter is further heightened through the increasing demand for antibiotic-free broiler meat, as a result of increased awareness of the associated risks.
