Success case: promoting feed intake in heat-stressed native chickens

Multiple studies have shown that heat stress significantly reduces feed intake, daily weight gain and feed use. In this article, we present three cases of native broiler farms, located in subtropical climates. In the three farms, the birds were affected by heat stress and their feed intake was below the standard of the breed. In all cases, the […]

Success case: PlusBreathe© promotes productivity in heat-stressed ducklings

The optimum environmental temperature for raising broiler ducks is 16-22℃ and only within this range the best performance can be achieved. When the environmental temperature is higher than 28℃, the ducks become heat-stressed: the normal physiological functions are altered, feed intake is reduced, feed conversion and growth rate worsen, the immune system is impaired and […]

How can heat stress affect the quality of poultry meat?

Genetic selection towards faster growing birds and higher breast yield has made the modern broilers more vulnerable to high temperatures. It is known that nowadays the negative effects of heat stress in commercial strains are observed at lower temperatures than several decades ago. Besides the negative effects of heat stress on the oxidative status of the […]
