Book presents advice on selecting suitable ingredients, preparing appropriate feed mixtures and integrating them into organic poultry production systems.
Organic poultry production has increased significantly in recent years to keep up with increasing consumer demand for organic eggs and meat. There are many guidelines and restrictions on what should go into the feed of organically-farmed poultry, from which difficulties arise when trying to ensure a well-balanced nutritious diet without the use of any unapproved supplements. This, the second edition of Robert Blair's classic and bestselling book on the nutrition and feeding of organic poultry, presents advice for organic producers, and the agencies and organizations serving them. It covers:
- Selecting suitable ingredients.
- Preparing appropriate feed mixtures and integrating them into organic poultry production systems.
- International standards for organic feeding.
- Breeds that are most suitable for organic farming.
- Examples of diets formulated to organic standards.
Completely updated and revised to address how to formulate organic diets in situations where there is a declining supply of organic feed, this new edition also includes up-to-date information on the nutritional requirements of poultry and feed-related disease incidence in organic flocks. Also including the feasibility of utilizing novel feed, such as insect meal, and their acceptability by consumers of organic meat products, this book forms a comprehensive reference for students, organic farmers, veterinarians and researchers.
Ideal for organic producers and agencies and organizations serving them, as well as researchers, students, regulatory agencies, feed manufacturers, feed supply companies, agricultural advisory personnel and veterinarians.
