Optimizing gut health in antibiotic-free poultry production requires producers to search for innovative ways to extract maximum nutritional value from feed to improve broiler performance.
High-quality feed is fundamental to broiler profitability. Two main aspects of feed quality are microbial quality and feed form. Feed-source pathogens can lead to disease and increased mortality in broilers. Research has shown that reducing high microbial loads in feed can help improve
Providing high-quality feed as part of a strong broiler breeder management program ensures good pullet uniformity and allows broiler breeders to express their full genetic potential, reach egg production goals and produce healthy, viable offspring, ultimately leading to a more profitable
A sustainable food chain is one that minimizes the negative impact on the environment, improves the health and well-being of people and animals and ensures equitable access, from field to fork. Feed efficiency, the ability of food-producing animals to utilize nutrients within their diets
Feed sampling is critical to monitoring feed quality and imperative to implementing and evaluating effective feed pathogen control programs. When done properly, feed sampling facilitates accurate analysis of feed and feed ingredient batches and provides valuable information pertaining to
Managing costs is at the top of everybody’s list. For poultry producers – one of the biggest cost centers is the feed supplied to poultry. Feed makes up 60-70% of the poultry production costs making poor ingredient and finished feed quality a significant loss. Variable microbial loads in
