The book assembles all current information on biology, production, housing and management of broiler breeders from lighting, to nutrition & feeding to health.
This book provides a 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.
Recognising the diversity of management systems worldwide, the authors cater for breeders in both temperate and warm climates, and also for controlled environment vs. curtain-sided housing systems.
Ideal for specialists and managers in broiler breeder production
Professors Steven Leeson and John Summers from the Department of Animal and Poultry Science of the University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, have international reputations in poultry science. They have made many contributions to poultry science and to poultry production.
Professor Leeson's main area of research is potential for manipulation of eggs and poultry meat as it impacts human health. He has been working on incorporation of omega-3 and other polyunsaturates into eggs for several years, and has been studying the transfer efficiency of lutein into eggs. Other research involves the use of medium chain triglycerides to impact gut health in the absence of antibiotic growth promoters.
