Presentation by Ramesh Subramonian: Introduction to APC

Presentation by Rick Kleyn: Early Chick Nutrition: Its Impact on Lifetime Performance

The better broilers do during their first week of life, the better their performance will be throughout their lives. The way in which we manage the chick impacts on the development of the GIT and it’s microbiota; development of the chicks musculature and skeleton (bone strength); an optimal immune system and lastly, on the overall welfare of the bird. Improving the nutritional status of the young broiler can be achieved by several mechanisms, all of which rely on each bird in the flock consuming adequate amounts of energy and nutrients. The most important mechanism that can be employed is to ensure that the birds achieve sufficient feed and water, and hence nutrient intakes.  Increased nutrient intake can also be achieved by increasing the nutrient levels of the diet or by ensuring that the diet is highly digestible.  The efficiency of nutrient utilisation of the diet may also be enhanced through providing the correct nutrient balance, through the use of specialised, functional ingredients and the use of additives such as exogenous enzymes. Gut form and function may be altered by both the feeding regimes used and through the addition of non-nutritive additives to the diet.

Presentation by Dr. Ricardo Esquerra: Spray Dried Plasma is a Key Ingredient in Early Diets for Broilers

Used globally in the swine industry for more than 35 years, the benefits of plasma are now proven in poultry production. Ensuring birds develop a strong immune system and gain weight early are key predictors of later performance. Spray Dried Plasma is uniquely positioned as part of a nutritional strategy to develop the immature immune and digestive systems in young poultry. Plasma promotes overall health, tolerance to challenges and stressors, and improves overall performance.
