Poultry Production

The Practice and Science of Chickens

As the poultry industry moved to high-density confinement, practical, scientifically based books for raising modest numbers of chickens became as rare as hen's teeth. Poultry books began to segment into weighty tomes for PhD's and light, well-meaning works that revive all the 19th-century supersitions that our forefathers worked so hard to debunk. Fortunately, we can find what we need by turning back the clock and putting the best books back into print. This book, the 9th edition of Poultry Production, is from 1961: old enough that smaller flocks, free range, and do-it-yourself feed and fixtures were still common, but new enough be relevant today, and grounded in modern science. Leslie Card's descrption of carefully tested methods allows you to move forward with your own flock. Poultry Production contains graphs, tables, and other aids to understanding (for example, a graph showing how a concrete floor affects the air temperature at floor level, warming it by more than 5 F in cold weather and cooling it by more than 15 F in hot weather). This kind of detail means there's a place for Poultry Production on every chicken owner's shelf. Leslie E. Card (1883-1968) was Professor of Animal Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana. Poultry Production is volume 8 of the Norton Creek Classics series. See http: // for these practical, best-of-breed poultry books.

Fowls For Profit - A Practical Treatise on Poultry Farming for Smallholders, Including a selection of the Best Breeds of Fowls for Egg Production and Table Purposes; Their Management, Feeding and Ailments. This scarce handbook on rearing poultry for profit was published in London in 1909. It was written by a practical poultry farmer of many years experience, and was prepared with the view of supplying farmers, cottagers and smallholders with sound advice and information on the subject. Apart from a little of the historical content much of this advice remains relevant and useful to today's small poultry keepers. READ COUNTRY BOOKS has now re-published this book using the original text and incorporating the many illustrations, vintage photos and advertisements. This useful publication is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all poultry keeping enthusiasts. Its 130 pages contain 15 detailed chapters: - Poultry farming. - The Egg Trade. - Breeding for Laying. - Management of Layers. - Scratching Sheds and Houses. - Food and Feeding. - Marketing Eggs. - Table Poultry. - Fattening. - Killing, Trussing and Marketing. - Poultry Ailments. - Preserving Eggs. - How to Treat Broody Hens. - Tables for Poultry Keepers. - Poultry Keepers Calendar. Etc.

This technical guide promotes sustainable small-scale, family-based poultry production. It gives a comprehensive review of all aspects of small-scale poultry production in developing countries and includes sections on feeding and nutrition, housing, general husbandry and flocks health. Regional differences in health practices are also described. The guide provides the technical and scientific "building blocks" needed to develop sustainable programs for small-scale poultry production. It will be of practical value to those keeping or planning to keep poultry and as a valuable technical reference for poultry specialists, researchers, students and those interested in broader rural development issues.--Publisher's description.

This publication reviews all aspects of poultry production in South Asia, including layer production for eggs and broilers for meat. Information is given on feeding and nutrition, housing and general husbandry, as well as on flock health. Regional specificity always exists but this type of production also shows the many similarities in other parts of the world with regard to potential and constraints.

These proceedings contain 15 papers on the recent advances in pig and poultry mechanistic modelling. Notable among the papers is the consideration of new components of the animal production process, such as social stressors and disease. Understanding of some new systems such as the physiological control of egg production in hens by modelling is the given focus in one paper. The topics covered in the other papers include the following: introduction to modelling in the animal sciences, different approaches to modelling animal systems; basic concepts describing animal growth and feed intake; modelling populations for purposes of optimization; advancements in empirical models for prediction and prescription; nutrient flow models, energy transactions and energy feed systems; evaluation of animal genotypes through model inversion; considerations for representing microenvironmental conditions in simulation models for broiler chickens; use of physiological models to define environmental control strategies; comparison of pig growth models from the genetic point of view; model of metabolism in the sow; and place of models in the new technologies of production systems.

Probiotics in Poultry Production

Probiotics are live microbial feed supplements that beneficially affect the host by improving its intestinal microbial balance. The microorganisms come from a whole range of defined strains of probiotics belonging to the groups of lactic acid bacteria, Bacillus spores, and yeasts. Research in nutritional physiology demonstrates the critical importance of a balanced gut microflorain in animal and human physiology. The probiotic concept is concerned with optimizing nutritional intake and digestion by promoting the gut flora perspective. Probiotics act by reducing the feed conversion, resulting in an increase of the daily live weight gain. The improvement of the growth of an animal is achieved through a natural, physiological way: improving digestion by balancing the gut flora, helping the animal to fulfill its genetic potential. This book discusses probiotics' mode of action and probiotics' practical application in poultry production, while explaining the use of probiotics in preventing and fighting poultry diseases, such as Salmonellosis, Necrotic Enteritis, Coccidiosis, bacterial lameness, etc. It will be essential reading for a wide group of readers, including university staff, feed mill companies, poultry producers, veterinarians, and researchers in the field.
