|Title:||Constraints to Broiler Chicken Nutrition in Developing Countries||Contributor(s):||Iji, Paul (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9150||Abstract:||Nutrition represents a core area of management in broiler chicken production not only because the birds grow on account of the nutrients supplied but also because feed costs represent more than 65 % of the variable costs of production in this industry. With proper feeding and health care, broilers are able to attain 2 kg live weight at 35 days of age and could be marketed at this age or a few days later. Currently, most producers in the developing hot humid countries are unable to achieve these production targets. There are various factors that are responsible for this, nutritional mis-management being one of them. The objective of this mini-review is to present deficiencies in the nutritional management of broiler chickens in developing countries, including the South Pacific islands, and identify ways by which these can be ameliorated.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||WPSA Workshop: Improving Poultry Production in Developing Countries in the SE Asia Pacific Region, Sydney, Australia, 3rd - 5th February, 2010||Conference Details:||WPSA Workshop: Improving Poultry Production in Developing Countries in the SE Asia Pacific Region, Sydney, Australia, 3rd - 5th February, 2010||Source of Publication:||WPSA Workshop: Improving Poultry Production in Developing Countries in the SE Asia Pacific Region, p. 22-23||Publisher:||WPSA: World's Poultry Science Association||Place of Publication:||Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.wpsa.com/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 361
