A review of all aspects of commercial production systems
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.
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.
