The rising costs of layer and broiler chicks brought about by the pandemic and ASF has cut into the profits of farms, regardless of size. As margins become tighter, the pressure to get the greatest productivity from each batch of chicks is even higher while the challenges in farming remain the same.
The trajectory of a broiler or layer’s growth gets set as soon as the chick hatches. It’s at this early stage that nutrition is most critical, and a lack of nutrients causes a chain reaction that negatively impacts how the animal grows from that point on.
During the first stages of a chick’s growth, key systems develop extremely quickly. The digestive and immune systems in particular undergo rapid changes, requiring large amounts of nutrients. A lack of nutritional building blocks slows this development, and an under-developed digestive system keeps the animal from absorbing further nutrients, slowing growth even more. Couple this with a weak immune system and the effects ripple down the production chain, leading to longer time spent growing, more food consumed, greater production costs for the farm, and dramatically decreased profitability. Factor in increased mortality and illness, and your farm’s profit diminishes even further.
Fortunately, there are steps that we can take to help maximize each animal’s potential. By providing the necessary nutrition, we give the materials the animals need to develop key systems. With proper nutrition, the digestive system develops better, allowing the chick to better absorb more nutrients.This also allows the chicks to use their internal nutritional reserves for growing, rather than spending these resources on simply staying alive. However, simply increasing feed amounts can’t make up for the nutritional gap. Simple feed and the proteins they carry require energy for the animal’s systems to break down and use, further taxing a growing chick.
This is where Nucleoforce comes in. By giving Nucleoforce via drinking water for the first 7 days of the chick’s life, we can help them meet their nutritional requirements, and maximize their growth potential.
Nucleoforce provides growing animals with the most basic building blocks they need during the critical times of rapid growth and physical development. Unlike raw protein in feed, Nucleoforce offers a huge advantage by delivering nutrients in a form that’s perfectly balanced and immediately usable by the animal’s cells. Energy and resources that would have been spent breaking down protein to usable components is instead saved for use in growing. With Nucleoforce, the components are already in a state that’s broken down and ready to be utilized for development.
With the convenience and consistency of delivery through drinking water, Nucleoforce provides key nutritional components, the chick has what it needs to meet the high demands of digestive and immune development. This puts it on the best path to meet the maximum potential of the breed, improves time to market for broilers and production for layers, and improves resistance to disease with less reliance on antibiotics.
Nucleoforce in water, combined with the appropriate Nucleoforce program in feed delivers scientifically proven increases in weight gain, food conversion, and immunity in starting-age chicks. This sets the pace for growth throughout the rest of the animal’ growth until harvest or egg production, resulting in better profit for your farm.
The first seven days are absolutely crucial in determining an animal’s rate of growth, and the rapid development they go through during that time period has massive nutritional requirements that feed alone can’t meet. Giving them easily usable building blocks ensures that you can help them maximize their weight, survivability, and immunity, and maximize profits for you. Choose maximum nutrition, for maximum profit with Nucleoforce during the first seven days of your broiler or layer flock.
