5 Ways To Increase Your Profit Margin, And To Ensure your Broilers Utilizes The Feed They Are Given On the Farm.
It is a known fact that poultry feeds account for more than 60% of the total cost of raising broilers at a given time.
Making these feeds available to your broiler birds alone does not guarantee complete success. There are other factors if left unchecked will greatly impact the profitability of the entire venture.
This article will highlight some of these important factors:
1. Good Storage And Safety Of The Feeds
Remember just like humans poultry birds love their feed to be presented fresh, palatable, and rich in nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, it should also smell good.
Feeds that are stored poorly especially in humid and warm climates (wet season), with high moisture content in the atmosphere, encourage mold growth.
Molds consume valuable nutrients and produce mycotoxins. Moldy feed is not only unpalatable but also toxic as well.
Molds due to poor storage could render your huge investment in poultry feeds almost useless if not taken seriously. These will impact the health of your birds and the effective utilization of feeds.
Feeds stored in plastic containers, drums and silos must be inspected and cleaned thoroughly.
Your feeds should be stored in a well-ventilated, dry environment to ensure that moisture in any form does not reach your stored poultry feed. The roof of your store should be intact, not leaking.
Avoid mixing feeds that will last longer than 90 days. Depending on the size of your farm ideally, weekly production of feeds on the farm is preferable.
