Discover the secrets to broiler growth by spending some time on the brooder floor with Dr. Scott Gillingham, Poultry Veterinarian.
Factor in the right production dependencies for your egg farm to get at accurate estimates. Don't over or undershoot, use this method.
A simple formula for calculating exactly how much feed your flocks will consume. This tells you the actual number of bags needed - handy.
According to the National Chicken Council U.S. in their U.S. Broiler Performance report, participants in the survey (whose broiler production accounts for 95% of the total US broiler output) achieved a broiler farming mortality rate of 5% in 2019.
This is a far cry from what things were like almost 100 years ago in 1925, when the figure was over 2 times as much (18%).
The cause for the large difference is arguable. I suppose we’ll never really know, nor does it really matter.
The key is to practice sound broiler farming stockmanship and rearing techniques.
This, in turn, will achieve and help to maintain a ‘normal’ broiler mortality rate.
Are you having a poor experience with your broiler mortality rate?
Or, is your broiler survival rate considerably better than quoted?
Either way, I’m interested to hear from you.
