What to expect
Stability in farm income and adaptive properties are two key factors that have been linked to high resilience of poultry farms in Nigeria. But what can poultry farmers do to support this cost-effectively by nutritional means to stay competitive and reduce the need of antibiotic growth promotors?
In this webinar Dr. Gwendolyn Jones will be looking at how novel nutritional concepts can support current efforts to increase the adaptive capacity of farms for resilience in Nigerian poultry production. This includes adaptation strategies of poultry farmers to rising temperatures in Africa.
The adoption of existing and new technologies for adapting to climate change and variability is a high priority for many ecological regions in Nigeria. Adaptive capacity is the ability of individuals and communities to adjust to changes, to take advantage of opportunities or to cope with the consequences.
The adaptive capacity of poultry farms starts in the bird. Find out how improving the adaptive capacity of the bird by nutritional means can lead to more stable incomes, maintain higher productivity for longer in laying hens and reduce the need for antibiotic growth promotors in broiler and egg production.
