Management techniques for preventing heat stress in summer flocks

It is now high in summer, and high temperature weather is likely to cause heat stress on the flock, resulting in lower egg production and worsening eggshells, which affects economic benefits. Therefore, in order to avoid the heat stress management and improve the efficiency of chicken raising, we must understand these techniques.



1, summer house by cooling fans and wet curtains. When the temperature of the house temperature is lower than 28 °C, the fan can be cooled by cooling the fan. The room temperature is over 28 ° C and the humidity is within 85%. The wet curtain can be opened intermittently to help the chickens to dissipate heat.

2, the density of breeding, adjust the density of chickens in summer, timely elimination of weak chickens and vegan chickens, reduce breeding costs, provide a better environment for high-yield chickens in poultry farming equipment for sale.

3, into the hot season, the chicken farm is best to not leave. The farm is equipped with generators and is regularly checked to ensure proper operation. In addition, the house is best equipped with a power failure alarm so that it can be discovered and disposed of in the event of a sudden power outage.

4. Feeding each time before 6 o'clock in the morning and after 6 o'clock in the morning, the feeding amount accounts for 30% of the whole day's feed. 10 am, 4 pm, refill or a small amount of feed. No feeding at noon and noon at higher temperatures increases the hunger of the chicken. At 12 o'clock in the evening, supplement the light for 1 hour and feed again.

5, summer chicken drinking water is 3-4 times the feed intake, the chicken through the water to dissipate heat, thereby alleviating heat stress, so high temperature days must not be lack of water. After entering the house every morning and afternoon, check the water level of the waterline to ensure that there is no water and water leakage, and ensure that the chickens drink properly. At noon and noon, provide ice water or use deep well water to increase heat dissipation.

6. Regularly disinfect and flush the drinking water pipe twice a month to ensure that the chickens drink to a clean water source in automatic layer rearing equipment.
