Cleaning and disinfection of farms; heating 24 hours before the arrival of the chickens; even temperature distribution, ventilation; sufficient space for feeding and drinking; proper lithuanian coverage and adequate coverage are some of the most important steps that a farmer must ensure to succeed in poultry farming and agriculture.
They were disclosed by Dr. Richard Beavis, Technical Manager of Aviagen, during the training of poultry farmers and farmers at Kakanfo Inn, Ibadan, during the third day of Arbor Acres (AA) Plus, organized by CHI Farms, to provide technical updates to poultry industry participants.
The third annual training also coincided with the 85th anniversary of the breed of broilers AA.
Beevis advised broiler farmers and farmers to grow parent stock for hatchery production to allow birds to settle for about two hours upon arrival, then feed and water, adjust lighting accordingly, start vaccination as soon as possible and monitor growth rates per week and provide a balanced food for the bird.
He warned that birds should not move more than two meters to get water and feed, saying that poultry production is still one of the enterprises that give the best return on investment if properly done.
CHI Farms General Director, Dr. Tunja Olaytan, said that the seminar had received technical training with the objectives of knowledge sharing, the exchange of internal and global experience and interaction with the respected customers of the popular brand Arbor Acres Plus.
"In this case, we have the privilege of having representatives of our global partner, Aviagen, the world leader and breeder of our brand Arbor Acres as a resource," said Dr. Olaytan.
Managing Director of CHI Farms Ltd, Martin Martindahnath, said that the essence of Arbor Acres Day "was fixed in our relations, values and commitment to the brand and customers in all our offers for the industry and markets."
