Broiler Breeder Production


In response to changing market conditions, breeding companies select primary genetic lines used in commercial broiler crosses with a heavy emphasis on broiler performance characteristics including growth rate, feed conversion, and meat yield.

While continual genetic selection has resulted in improved broiler performance, it poses a greater challenge for breeder flock managers in producing and maintaining flocks with the high rates of egg production and fertility easily achievable in the past.
