A poultry farmer wants to increase his broiler production. Explain 3 management practices followed to enhance the yield and in what way are the daily food required of broiler different from those of egg layers?
• Management of farms- the animals must be kept in a very spacious and clean environment. So, that they might not be caught by any disease or might not be caught by any other environmental factors. Proper vaccination should be done on a regular basis.
• Nutrient ratio- the nutritional value in ratio to be maintained precisely because the demand for different stages requires attention.
• Out breeding of animals- a good and healthy breed of animals is selected because only they could enhance productivity. Out breeding must be encouraged.
The food requirement of broilers is different from the egg layers, as broilers are just meant for meat. Layers(birds for egg production) are utilized for egg production. The diet of the former one is required high fat and protein rich components while the later one is supplied with growth and Vitamin rich supplements.
