Latest research dispatch explores the nutritional benefits of copper supplementation for broilers

4 November 2020, at 11:41am

Copper supplementation can give broiler chickens a production edge, but research suggests that the source of the minerals is the key.

Though in-person conferences and training events are few and far between this year, Trouw Nutrition is making sure that poultry producers can access the latest research and stay up-to-date with the industry’s progress.

With this in mind, Trouw is pleased to welcome poultry producers and industry stakeholders to listen to its Research Dispatch webinar. The free webinars focus on emerging research that impacts animal health and performance on commercial farms and in feed mills around the globe.

The latest webinar, which will be broadcast on 5 November at 10-11 EST/9-10 CST, will feature poultry expert Dr Narendra Venkatareddy. Dr Venkatreddy will give an in-depth review of the latest research findings on copper supplementation.

Scientists have noted that feeding high levels of trace minerals like copper can affect mode of action within broilers. Researchers have also observed that copper can enhance performance and that feeding copper above 125-250 ppm has a strong antimicrobial effect. The webinar will compare the differences in the stability, efficacy, gut health support and growth between copper sources in broiler chicken diets.
