Nutrition represents the largest cost in poultry production. Delivered feed which is of lower than expected quality will have a negative effect on flock performance. Taking a feed sample will provide the farm with information on the feed being given to the birds (physical quality / nutrient content). If required this can be used for future analysis and investigation.

Monitor and act

If there is a concern that physical quality or nutrient levels of the feed are below specifications and impact bird performance, laboratory analyses are required. Discuss analyses and results with your local nutritionist.
