Broilers grow very rapidly, and in a short period. So when you take action, don’t think in days but in hours or even less. The slightest interruption can disrupt the finely balanced process. Result: growth stagnates, and birds get sick and die. As a poultry keeper, there’s little more you can do once something has already gone wrong. So it’s all the more important to prevent problems or, at the very least, to react quickly to signals of them. And if it’s already too late, you need to make sure you avoid the problem in the next round by recognising and acknowledging what has happened.
Broilers tell you a great many things through the signals they give us through their behaviour, their physical characteristics and in their environment. This is precisely what Broiler Signals is all about. Good management starts with recognizing signals.
This e-learning course is a part of the Poultry Signals® concept and it offers an accessible aid to picking up signals from your animals at an early stage, interpreting them and taking action.
This course follows the life cycle of broilers. Each phase is discussed in a separate chapter with the important aspects highlighted. This broiler-oriented approach aims to improve your management skills, the health of the poultry and the economic results on your farm.
