Make sure there’s enough ventilation and stay out of the sun.
In the early 90s Cobb started collecting information on breeder flocks worldwide and a clear cut pattern for improvement in performance has been observed since then. Genetic selection has certainly been a great contributor to this progress. However, a better understanding of nutritional and management needs has also played a part.
The recent Future Farming Theatre at GFIA Europe, in the Netherlands, was a great success. Did you miss it? Not to worry! Watch the video.
The next major advance in poultry nutrition will come from feeding chicks in-ovo, and ‘imprinting’ behaviour through tailored diets in the first days of life.
New research has concluded that eggs’ unique combination of high quality protein and essential vitamins and minerals means they should be termed ‘nature’s multivitamin’.
Dealing with disease in poultry production is challenging. Many factors come into play. Even to the point of dealing with the re-emergence of a disease believed to be a disease of the past.

A nutrient that is hiding in plain sight, water is concealed under the cover of water lines and nipple drinkers, so it is not given too much thought. However, not thinking about the water flowing in your barn can be harmful to bird health and, ultimately, your bottom line.
The use of sensors for animals, use of big data in farming and innovative insights on how to farm today and in the future - visit our Proagrica Future Farming Theatre at the GFIA (9-10 May) and learn more about all these exciting topics.
An Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist in Pennsylvania and his colleagues have developed a technology that rapidly pasteurises eggs and could sharply reduce the number of illnesses caused each year by egg-borne Salmonella bacteria.
