Weight control of breeders ducks
Controlling the growth of your duck breeders is essential to optimise your performance during the production cycle. With future duck breeders, weight control allows to manage the growth curve.
The implementation and maintenance of biosecurity rules in duck farms secure flows to limit the entry of pathogens.
The sources of contamination in a livestock building can be directly linked to :
It is useful to control the environment close to the tool to control the sanitary quality of the production building. The spreading of manure can generate biological risks.
Traffic must be physically separated. The application of vehicle decontamination procedures should be systematic.
The slaughter collection point should be as far away as possible from the livestock area to limit the crossing of flows with all livestock inputs.
Fencing separates the circulation area of the farm from the outside area where outside parties can operate (delivery of feed, gas, etc.).
The storage of straw is specific to the farm. This area is enclosed, protected from birds and rodents which could be a source of contamination for the animals.
A three-zone airlock is used to prevent the spread of pathogens in the farm. The first zone consists of removing shoes from outside the building and putting on shoes specific to the farm. For occasional entry, new single-use overshoes can be put on without ever returning to the previous area. The second zone covers the decontamination steps that should be carried out in a precise order :
They should be available on site and placed in a specific binder. This includes
