Summary

This tool explains feeding phases in poultry, they are the different divisions that are established in order to obtain maximum utilization of feed and nutrients. A trial which compared two feed restriction treatments of broilers was done at Lycee Nature; both of which protein feed was gradually reduced. The first was reduced over 3 feeding periods and the second over 5. The purpose was to progressively reduce protein content of feed at the end of the fattening period without impacting broilers performance. Results shows that reducting protein use in 3 or 5 phases allowed equal performance in broilers. This document can help farmers and feed producers to adapt feeding formulation and ration planning in order to reduce feed waste, which implies saved production costs.


Summary translation

L’outil détaille les phases d’alimentation en volailles, plusieurs divisions sont effectuées afin de maximiser l’utilisation de l’aliment et des nutriments. L’essai compare deux essais de restrictions alimentaires sur des lots de poulets au lycée Nature, la teneur en protéine des aliments distribués étant peu à peu diminuées. Le premier lot a subit cette diminution en 3 aliments successifs, le second en 5 aliments. L’objectif est que la réduction progressive de la teneur en proteine lors de la phase de finition n’est pas d’impact sur les performances des poulets. Ce document peut aider les éleveurs et les fabricants d’aliment à adapter les formulations et les plannings d’alimentation afin de réduire les pertes d’aliment, ce qui induit des réductions de coût alimentaire.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Reduce the protein content of feed for broilers fattening with restrictive feeding.
What problem does the tool address?:Reducing protein needs over the broilers life helps to avoid over-feeding and waste.
What solution does the tool offer?:This tools explains how you can gradually reduce the feed protein content in 5 feeding phases rather than the typical 3.
