Keeping moisture levels in the poultry house under control is a sure-fire way to minimise a wide range of potential health problems and improve performance. The University of Georgia’s Dr Brian Fairchild gave the Alltech ONE conference tips on getting it right.
Any broiler producer will know that ensuring temperature targets are hit is one of the fundamental elements of good house management. But farmers should be thinking more about how moisture levels are controlled – a measure “just as important”, according to the University of Georgia’s Brian Fairchild. “We have a very specific target temperature that we want to maintain in houses,” he told the Alltech ONE conference, “And we’ve worked for years to do a good job of maintaining that. We need to do the same thing with relative humidity.”
