About this book

This new book provides an up-to-date look at all aspects of broiler breeder production and management, starting with specialised genetic programs as developed by the primary breeders and ending with two chapters on very practical, hands-on aspects of breeder management.

There is extensive coverage of health management, feeding systems, environmental control, lighting programs and all aspects of male and female reproduction.
