    En sistemas de crianza y producción en galpones separados, las aves se transfieren del galpón de levante al de postura antes del inicio de la producción. A este proceso se le debe dar un manejo cuidadoso con el fin de evitar pérdidas en el peso corporal y en la uniformidad de la parvada, reducción en el desempeño de la reproductora y en el bienestar animal, e inclusive aumento en la mortalidad. La aplicación de las mejores prácticas de manejo del proceso de transferencia se inicia con la planeación de la transferencia aproximadamente 2 semanas antes de que las aves sean trasladadas, y continúa hasta aproximadamente 5 días después de la transferencia con el monitoreo de las aves para garantizar que se hayan establecido bien en el galpón de postura.

    The tables have now turned. Ignoring South America is perilous. A good illustration of this occurred in April when the combination of flood in Argentina and drought in Brazil led to a sudden increase in the world price of corn and soybeans. Traders and pundits alike were caught by surprise and unable to act quickly. The effects were huge because South America is now gigantic in world production and trade.
