Young Animal Nutrition Webinar

To be able to produce a sufficient supply of animals, a key stage that producers should turn their attention to is young animals. The early stage of production is likely to be the most affected by stress and diseases as this is when the animals are most vulnerable. High mortality and poor performance at this stage can be attributed to trauma, starvation, scouring and respiratory disease in swine while malabsorption, diarrhea, necrotic enteritis and coccidiosis are the main culprits in poultry.

STARTING YOUR CHICKS RIGHT: AN EARLY BROILER NUTRITION MASTERCLASS

Seven day weights are a performance measure that is widely used in the broiler industry. They are important because they are correlated with ultimate performance of a flock of birds. At seven days we expect broilers to have a developing GIT, a healthy gut microflora and a well calcified skeleton.

Achieving good seven day weights entails a wholistic approach which includes the following:

  • breeder hen nutrition
  • incubation and chick processing
  • delivery of the chick to the farm
  • brooding and general farm management, with the aim of maximizing feed intake
  • nutrient requirement of the chick, especially energy, balanced protein and minerals
  • practical feed formulation and ingredient selection

In this webinar, Rick Kleyn will deal with those aspects leading to delivery of sound day old chicks to the farm. Peter Chrystal will then deal with achieving feed intakes and the nutrient requirement of one week old broilers. In a combined third session, both authors will be involved in a demonstration of formulating practical diets for you broilers.

Date: 1st July 2021

Time: 14.00 to 16.00 (GMT+7)
