Aviagen has published new parent stock (PS) nutrition specifications for the Ross brand. These specifications detail the optimal nutrient balance, including amino acids, energy, vitamins and minerals.
The genetic potential for bird performance, health and welfare is continually advancing; this is reflected in the recently updated PS performance objectives. Aviagen has advised customers to use the nutrition specification in conjunction with the PS performance objectives and PS management handbook for the relevant brand.
Developed by Aviagen nutritionists, the new nutritional strategy will enable the latest Performance Objectives to be reached in a holistic, balanced way that simultaneously promotes reproductive performance, optimal early development, chick quality, liveability and other aspects of bird health and well-being.
“Aviagen is committed to helping our customers further strengthen the outstanding performance, health and welfare of their flocks. As we continue to increase the inherent potential of our birds, optimising nutrition becomes more and more important, and our goal for the new nutrition advice is to provide customers with the knowledge to do so,” said Marcelo Silva, head of global nutrition.
