Lifetime Production

Selected Species

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

Why is it important?

  • Efficient and sustainable use of available resources (feed, water, land, etc.) to achieve better lifetime production of birds beyond their potential is the key in making the poultry operation perform better.
  • Poultry lifetime production 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.

How to maximize the potential?

  • Ensure efficient digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients in the gut.
  • Reduce nutrient wastage by reducing the natural cell debris present in the gut.
  • Establish efficient channeling of nutrients within the body for priority functions.

  • Degrading bacterial cell debris in the gut wall blocking nutrient absorption with a novel muramidase supports not just optimal gut health but also releases additional nutrients to improve performance.
  • Vitamin D, in a further metabolized form as 25-OH-D3 is highly efficient in potentiating Ca & P metabolism, allowing for better persistency of lay.
  • A precision monitoring system using blood biomarkers can help predict the growth challenges to gain insights into flock performance.
  • Precise sustainability measures can help reduce the environmental footprint while ensuring lifetime production.

We recommend ensuring Optimum Vitamin Nutrition and a comprehensive mycotoxin risk management program as baseline in all Poultry diets.
