Introduction: Agriculture has been the backbone of the Indian economy. Unfortunately, even after several attempts and decades of planning, agriculture sector has remained far from achieving it’s due share of accolades. Our farmers remain poor primarily due to lack of access to modern technology, implements, inputs and credit. Government schemes are available, but the poor farmers lack the intellect and the knowledge to access such schemes.
Product Description: When chicken is raised for meat, then such varieties are called broiler chicken. Initially broilers were considered to be young male chicken selected from the entire farm flock, but the modern commercial meat breeds have changed this definition. Now, commercial broilers are selected like the hybrid Cornish chicken etc. and are bred for large scale efficient meat production. Broilers grow very fast and have a high feed conversion ratio. The minimum weight of the broiler at the time of slaughter is expected to be 2 kg and this should be achieved within 45 to 52 days according to the commercial breeding practices. The artificial breeding in birds makes them
immature physiologically when compared to slow growing free range or organic breeds, which generally take 12 to 16 weeks to attain slaughter weight. The broilers typically have white feathers with yellow skin and the reason for this yellow skin colour is due to hybridization of domestic birds with grey jungle fowl gene. In broilers both
the male and female birds are reared for their meat. The behaviour of the broiler changes according to the environment. Modern broilers are considered to be omnivores and are given, special diet of high protein, so that they attain the desired weight. The feed conversion ratio of the birds depends greatly on the breeding practices and varies for different locations. In India the average feed conversion ratio is determined to be in the range of 1.69 to 1.72, whereas in the US the average Feed conversion ratio of broiler chickens is 1.91 pounds of feed per pound of chicken. Similarly the feed conversion ratio in Canada is 1.72 and the best feed conversion ratio is observed in the broiler chicken farms of New Zealand which is estimated to be around 1.38 or lower.
