Nutra Blend

On today's episode, John Ratzenberger sits down with Novus' Melanie Roux to discuss how the main goal of any broiler breeder program is to produce eggs. To do this, feed management is important. During the rearing phase, these birds should be closely monitored because they have a hard time self-regulating their feed intake which leads to overweight birds and poor egg production in the hen house.
