The Broiler How To series provides practical, hands-on, step-by-step advice on key management topics for broilers.

Early on in the growing cycle (0-21 days of age) birds can be weighed in bulk. Routine accurate estimates of average bulk body weight allow:

  • Live flock performance to be accurately monitored
  • Possible performance issues to be identified quickly
  • House environment, lighting and feeding programmes to be adjusted
  • Defined end product specifications to be as closely met as possible.
