Lifetime Performance

Selected Species

Push the flock’s productive and reproductive performance beyond their potential

Going beyond flock potential

  • Efficient and sustainable use of available resources (feed, water, land, etc.) to achieve better lifetime performance of birds beyond their potential is the key in making the poultry operation perform better.
  • Poultry lifetime performance is measured by body weight gain and feed efficiency in meat birds and by longer laying cycle, egg production, and persistency of lay in laying birds, in addition to hatchability and chick quality in breeders
  • Therefore, the needs for ensuring lifetime performance of poultry are:
    • Ensuring efficient digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients in the gut
    • Reducing nutrient wastage by reducing the natural cell debris present in the gut
    • Establishing efficient channeling of nutrients within the body for priority functions

Lifetime performance solutions

Maximize the digestion and absorption of feed energy through utilization of carbohydrases, and protein through a novel protease. Providing birds with a novel muramidase increases feed efficiency by reducing bacterial cell debris that line the intestine preventing optimal nutrient and energy absorption. Vitamin D in a more bioactive form as 25-OH-D3 is highly efficient in potentiating Ca and P metabolism allowing for better persistency of lay.

In breeding stock, add high quality carotenoids with 25-OH-D3 to increase the hatchability, number of chicks per hen, and the chick quality. Using a monitoring system like blood biomarkers can help predict the challenges to flock performance, while sustainability measures can help reduce the environmental footprint while ensuring lifetime performance.
