Optimal care for broilers is necessary to support them when they need it the most. This helps them to perform optimally. During the cycle, there are various moments on which broilers can be supported directly and efficiently.
This is achieved by adding acids to their drinking water. Organic acid blends lower pH levels and protein digestion. On specific moments, this can be expanded with organic acids that specifically support the intestines. In addition to acids, specific nutrients can also be added to the water. Administering these substances through the drinking water, guarantees that they enter the body, where they improve the immune system and bone quality.
Administering acids and nutrients
Administering acids and specific nutrients to animals can be done in different ways, for instance by adding them to their feed. However, this way of administering acids has proven to be inefficient. As an unhealthy broiler eats less, it also has a lower intake of active components. Consequently, administering acids through the drinking water is the most effective way, as broiler farmers can act quickly with drinking water and dosing these products is both flexible and convenient. This supports the animals when they need it the most.
Optimal care in relation to the other HyCare pillars
Optimal care is important to achieve the HyCare objectives for broilers. This optimal care is however insufficient for achieving maximum returns from your animals and improve safety in the food production chain if implemented as a stand-alone measure. Hygiene levels must be increased as well, which means: a germ-free living environment, a pest-free stable, healthy drinking water and pore-free surfaces.
