Chicks: Importance on the First Seven Days to Promote Weight Gain

Sabtu, 2 Februari 2008

Steve Leeson, Ph.D., from the University of Guelph, recently revealed new findings on the importance of chick nutritional strategies.

Leeson was sponsored by Alltech, a global leader in animal health, to present his findings at the International Poultry Expo, held in Atlanta, Georgia. His findings exhibited the importance and impact of a comprehensive nutritional strategy for chicks during the first seven days out of the egg, which would in turn yield heavier birds at 42 days.

Leeson reported that a prestarter diet pack encompassing several patented Alltech technologies fed for just the first seven days outside of their shell yielded results such as:

* 34 percent heavier birds at 4 days
* 21 percent heavier birds at 7 days
* 17 percent heavier birds at 21 days
* 12 percent heavier birds at 33 days
* 9 percent heavier birds at 42 days

"Alltech has always been committed to providing natural solutions to the feed and food industries, and this new research supports our product, ‘The 7-Day Charge,´" said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. "Just as all babies – human and animal alike – need strong nutritional foundations for future development, Dr. Leeson has proven that this is true for chicks as well."

Attendees were amazed to hear about the possibility of a bird weighing 200 grams more after 42 days because of a mere seven-day nutritional strategy at the beginning of a bird´s life.

Since 1980, Alltech has provided natural nutritional solutions to the feed and food industries. Alltech´s presence has grown with offices and distributors in 113 countries and more than 1,800 employees around the world.
