Split-feeding broiler breeders

Optimising diets for broiler breeders

Reducing broiler breeding costs can be done through smart feed choices. Broiler breeder hens are usually given restricted diets once a day to promote reproductive performance. This method is falling short in terms of achieving optimal nutrient use because the nutrient requirements differ during the day. With NutriOpt's Split-feeding feeding program for broiler breeders, hens are fed twice a day, therefore the nutrient distribution fits better with the nutrient requirements. This service can be implemented as an add-on in Bestmix and FaaS.
