The world of poultry production is rapidly changing.Poultry producers are faced with many issues that threaten their economic survival. However, these very issues are critical to ensure the growth and stability of our industry, we must face them and be progressive in our response to the public and to the perceptions of the consumer. The day of the single disease-causing agent is becoming a rarity, especially in Layer production.view more»
Healthy chicks are the starting point for good poultry performance. Yet, any number of problems - some difficult to detect early on - can impact the quality of day old chicks.
From the breeder’s farm to the hatchery and transportation to final farm reception, management practices have a real impact. Optimised processes and preventive measures can give chicks the right start.view more»
The poultry industry in South Asia has shown consistent growth over the years as a fast developing and dynamic contributor to the agricultural economy. The trend is expected to continue in order to meet the increasing demands of the growing human population. This increasing demand is not merely due to an increase in population but also due to a change in consumption pattern among the population. Population growth, urbanization, and income growth in developing countries are fueling a massive increase in demand for food of animal origin. These changes in the diets of billions of people could significantly improve the well-being of many poor people in rural areas (Christopher et al., 1999), especially in the developing nations like India and China and other Asian countries.view more»
Impact of CLOSTATTM SP on intestinal health and broiler productivity Partha Pratim Das, Prakash Chandra Saini, K. JayaramanAugust 13, 2015 1:37:23 PM IST | India
Poultry industry is looking towards modern trends of rearing and management practices to get maximum productivity at sustainable cost. A potential challenge affecting modern broiler performance is poor intestinal health and impaired gut ecosystem (Chanthirasekaran, 2009). Deviation from standard composition of intestinal microbiota in poultry leads to poor intestinal functions and productivity (Collett, 2012). Necrotic Enteritis (NE) caused by Clostridium perfringens is one of the important disruptive agents of intestinal health (Collett, 2012). The intestinal epithelial lining is damaged during NE that reduces surface area for nutrient assimilation (Collett, 2012). This leads to wastage of costly nutrients in the gut. Losses due to NE have been estimated to be around INR 2/- per bird (Chanthirasekaran, 2009).view more»
Efficacy of natural biosurfactant LYSOFORTE® over chemical emulsifier Glycerol Polyethylene Glycol Recinoleate (PGER) – a performance study ParthaPratim Das, Amitabh V Pandey and K JayaramanAugust 13, 2015 1:28:01 PM IST | India
Present day broiler production is projected towards maximizing performance with sustainable input costs and combating present day challenges of increased raw material price. For this, proper utilization of nutrients is essential. In commercial broiler production practice, fat/oil is usually added to meet the bird’s energy requirement. Fats and oils from external sources as well as from raw materials comprising the total ether extract of diet are the costliest part of the diet. So, effective utilisation of this nutrient is very significant for substancial economic benefit. Fat reduces the rate of food passage through the gastro intestinal (G.I) tract and thus facilitates better absorption of all nutrients present in the gut. Absorption of nutrients, especially using fats and oils, is primarily accomplished by bile salts that act as a natural biosurfactant in the gut. To attain current trend of maximised broiler productivity, the natural bile source inside the bird is not enough to fullfill optimum ether extract digestion and absorption. Young birds recycle bile salts less efficiently and produce fatty acid binding proteins in less quantity. As such, there is an opportunity to optimize digestion and absorption of ingested fat by improving its emulsification and ensuring more uniform and smaller micelle development.view more»
