From the last few decades, poultry industry has achieved its unpredictable milestone through the various advanced scientific approaches. Commercialization of poultry farming established the new era to improve production quality with cost-effective management. However, competitiveness of the poultry business has increased the use of antibiotic as a growth promoter which produces residual effect and adversely affects the human health. Poultry nutritionist, have subjected various alternative sources as a performance enhancers in the chicken. MOS and probiotic is one of the best sources to improve the cost-effective poultry production cycle. This book, providing a new alternative to the poultry feed enterprises, poultry professionals (nutritionists), poultry feed developer and commercialized poultry farmers or anyone else who may consider, for the low-cost improved quality poultry production and can by such feeding supplementation.
The majority of the Kenyan population resides in the rural areas and is characterized by low income and food insecurity leading to high levels of poverty. Poultry production and in particular indigenous chicken (IC) production play a significant role in the economic and social life of these resource-poor households, contributing to cheap source of animal proteins and cash income. Indigenous chickens are present whenever there are human settlements and their economic strength lies in their low cost of production which is a characteristic of the resource-poor rural households. Two of the major challenges facing layer chicken farmers are, the high cost of electric energy used for lighting/heating poultry houses, heating incubators and the cost of supplying sufficient water to the poultry farm. By providing an alternative cheaper source of electricity for the farmers, this inherent costs will be eliminated or reduced hence boosting profits and enhancing growth. This research proposes designing a Hybrid solar and wind electricity generation system to either supplement or replace the electric power from the national grid of a chicken farm.
Feathers are discarded in large quantities at industrial poultry-processing plants as a waste by-product leading to environmental pollution. Because of the insoluble nature of keratin and its resistance to enzymatic digestion by animal, plant and many known microbial proteases, use of feathers as a source of value-added products has been very limited. Most feather wastes however is land filled or burned, which involves expenses and cause environmental problems. Traditional methods such as steam and pressure and strong alkali or acid usually used in processing feathers required significant energy and resulted in destruction of some essential amino acids. Microbial degradation of feathers may provide a viable alternative for improving feathers utilization because it is ecologically safe, low-cost and offers mild reaction conditions. In an attempt to resolve this dilemma, fungal degradation of feather may overwhelm these problems and provide available alternative for improving feathers utilization.
Poultry litter is used in confined buildings met for raising broilers, turkeys and other birds. The bedding materials such as wood shavings sawdust, peanut hulls, shredded sugarcane, straw, sand and other dry, absorbent, low-cost organic materials. The main function of bedding materials is to help in the absorption's moisture, preventing the excess production of ammonia and harmful pathogens .The materials used as bedding can also have a significant impact on the hematological and biochemical characteristics. Some specific procedures must be adhered, to properly maintain the litter and maximize the health and productivity of the birds raised on it. From the findings of this research, rice hull, groundnut hull and sharp sand can be effectively used as alternative bedding materials to wood shavings without detrimental effects on the physiology of broilers.
Energy is often considered as the start-point for least-cost diet formulation for poultry. Broilers have remarkable tendency to achieve certain gains for age, through modifying voluntary feed intake when offered an array of dietary energy. In this context, the decision regarding the optimum dietary level of energy seems merely a function of the unit cost of energy and the premium achieved in terms of improved feed efficiency. This implies that, depending upon the availability and price of feedstuffs, there could have been situations where low-energy diets could prove economically more attractive. In context of this somewhat unconventional scenario, it was realized that empirical evidence addressing the question that how the level of dietary protein and amino acids be adjusted when diets are to be formulated to contain low-energy is lacking. Present work highlights the response of broilers to graded levels of protein and amino acids in conjunction with low-energy diets and under the rearing conditions of tropical ambient.
Ethiopia holds large potential for dairy development and has the largest livestock population in Africa, feed is one of the most important factors affecting animal productivity. In Ethiopia feed availability and feed cost will contribute to the low productivity of animals. So finding livestock feeds with low cost price is important, poultry litter is one of the low cost and also available feed as compared with other feed availebele in Ethiopia. It was found that there were significant differences among treatments when observed across periods in feed intake, milk yield and composition. It can, therefore, be concluded that poultry litter can be good replacement for resource poor producers. Hence, poultry litter as a supplement feed in dairy farm production should be sacaled up to increase the production and productivity in dairy farm industry, espacially in small scale farmers.
