ArticleZinc complexes improve feed conversionDietary zinc stimulates immunity and supports skeletal development, feathering and skinstrength, etc. In addition, feeding highly bioavailable sources of zinc, such as zinc complexes, tobroilers also shows improvements in gain and feed conversion.By Wiebe van der Sluis, Rooster45, Doetinchem, The Netherlands acetate 19%. It is also true that the relative biological value of zinc sources varies (see Table 1). Growth promotion effects Because of the low zinc content in some feed ingredients with varying levels of bioavailabily, it is necessary to add zinc to poultry diets. In the European Union, zinc diet contents are allowed up to 150 mg/kg feed. These levels cover largely the recommended requirements for most animals, especially when highly bioavailable zinc complexes are supplemented. When feeding zinc complexes within these legal limits, it helps decrease the severity of footpad and skin lesions, as well as improve feathering conditionZinc is an essential trace element in all living and skeletal development.

  16. 16. Cover Story Big Dutchman No. 1 Worldwide Big Dutchman today is a formidable force in the Pig and Poultry Equipment Industry World Wide. The story started in 1938 when two brothers, Jack and Dick DeWitt invented the worlds first automatic poultry feeding system (chain Feeder). This they sold around the agricultural shows in the mid west of the United States under the name of Automatic Poultry Feeder Company. The story goes that to encourage potential customers to their stand they dressed a “large” man in traditional Dutch clothing and he walked the show directing potential customers to the stand. This caused the people to say “let us go to the Big Dutchman”, hence the name of the company which we all know today Big Dutchman was founded. The Meerpohl Family became involved in Big Dutchman in 1958 when Joseph Meerpohl acquired the agency to market Big Dutchman equipment in Germany. From that early start success came and his agency flourished under his steady guiding hand. Over the years there have been a few twists and turns but eventually in 1985 Joseph Meerpohl structured a management buy-out of Big Dutchman from Hanson Trust and he secured the rights for worldwide sales except for North and South America. At this time as it still is today, Calveslage, the seat of the family home become the International Head Quarters for Big Dutchman and the start of the phenomenal growth begins. The growth was and still is in the main due to the companys old strengths and values which are still the basic values of the company today. These are: to be fair, never leave a problem as we should always try our very best to satisfy our customers and if we get it wrong put it right as we should never knowingly lose a customer through dissatisfaction. The company now employs approx. 2000 people worldwide and has a turnover for 2010/11 of nearly $1.00 billion. Both the number of people and the turnover continues to grow as the demand for pig and poultry equipment continues unabated. In Calveslage, the companys head office and the family home, there are16

Kotaiah from IndbroResearch & Breeding Farms.The study concludes that poultry breeding for efficiency alone may notcontinue.The investment on poultry housing and infrastructure is going up andfeed ingredients of good quality are getting expensive and may not beavailable.A change in environmental requirements will mean birds could becomeexposed to low level of common infections without treatment and thebirds will simply have to cope with this.The study says that the birds should perform well in low investmenthouses, with lower quality feed and withstand some amount ofinfections without using high order medicines.However, the more practical way is to breed the birds under similarconditions.The initial data shows that the "Adaptability" can be built up in the flockas a genetic trait.The birds breed under suboptimal conditions perform even better, whenbetter environment is given.Inputs such as manpower and investments also make it favourable to dothis and the growing markets will accept these birds more favourably.20
