The Broiler How To series provides practical, hands-on, step-by-step advice on key management topics for broilers.

Early on in the growing cycle (0-21 days of age) birds can be weighed in bulk. Routine accurate estimates of average bulk body weight allow:

  • Defined end product specifications to be as closely met as possible.
