    Una delle maggiori sfide per I produttori di uova da cova è il produrre uova di buona pezzatura ad inizio deposizione e poi controllarne il peso nella fase tardiva della deposizione. Con aumentare dell’età degli animali aumento del peso delle uova è inevitabile; tuttavia con una attenta gestione del gruppo di riproduttori è possibile prevenire uova eccessivamente grosse (2-3 grammi sopra lo standard) in galline vecchie. Lo scopo di questo articolo è di esplorare le cause di uova eccessivamente grosse nella fase tardiva della deposizione e di identificare gli aspetti e soluzione pratiche per evitare questo e contemporaneamente ricavare il massimo potenziale genetico dai riproduttori.

    Контроль массы яиц родительского бройлерного поголовья на поздней стадии производства является проблемой, знакомой многим птицеводам. По мере взросления птицы становится более трудным поддерживать нормативную массу яйца, не допуская появления крупных яиц, которые превышают нормативную массу на 2-3г. Однако, используя эффективные технологические методы, включая контроль массы яиц в хозяйстве и контроль однородности и CV% несушек, а также поддержание оптимального баланса питательных веществ в корме в течение всего жизненного цикла стада, можно добиться равномерности массы яиц в после пиковый период продуктивности.

    Broiler Economics, US Harvest Well Underway, Oct. 2014

    The progress of the US harvest is slow, but the total is expected to be huge. Harvest is slow in part due to the difficulties of bringing in an enormous crop and in part to some untimely rain, but the total amount is no longer in question. The most recent crop progress report of October 14th shows that only 24% of the corn was harvested, down from the average of 43% on that date. Crop condition is encouraging with 74% of the corn crop in good to excellent condition. Soybeans are 40% harvested; down from the average of 53% on the same date and 73% of the soybean crop is in good to excellent condition. Harvest will accelerate in the next few weeks.

    Broiler Economics: Harvest is Nearly Secure in the US, Aug. 2014

    With just one month to go before the 2014 US corn and soybean harvest is secure, weather conditions are nearly perfect in the Corn Belt. The temperature dropped just in time for pollination and stayed relatively low in the month of August. With every passing day crop failure becomes less likely and it becomes more likely that a record amount of both corn and soybeans will be produced in the US this year. As a result, the market prices for both corn and soybeans are falling.

    Broiler Economics: Soybeans finally headed lower, June 2014

    The  cost  of  soybean  meal  has  been  punishingly  high  for   the  poultry  industry  this  year.  There was  hope  that  a  huge   harvest  in  South  America  would  bring  relief  a  few  months  ago; however,  a  shortage  of  soybeans  in  the  US  kept  the  price  in   Chicago  high.
