What are the problems associated with poultry farming?

In recent years, with the rapid development of the chicken industry, many people have begun to use poultry farming equipment to raise chickens, and many new problems have begun to plague farmers. If farmers want to achieve better economic benefits in raising chickens, the following issues should be regulated.

Poor management

1. The disinfection system is not perfect. The vast majority of chicken farmers lack understanding of the concept of disinfection system, 90% of professional housing is very strict, but there is no disinfection pool at the door of the chicken house; 80% of professional households do not wear disinfection suits and shoes at all; 30% Professional households are closely related to their neighbours, and they are allowed to enter and exit the chicken house. The internal and external environment is poor. 50% disinfection method is single, only focusing on air disinfection, not paying attention to drinking water and feed disinfection, while most of the water used by village farmers is polluted on the surface. Well water.

2. Ignore elimination and overemphasize the survival rate. On the one hand, some farmers do not eliminate weak chickens and chickens in the reserve chickens. On the other hand, they ignore the elimination of old and low-yielding hens, and do not pay attention to calculating the ratio of input to output, thus affecting economic benefits.

3. The faeces are piled up, and the sick and dead chickens are thrown. 80% of the professional households did not harmlessly treat sick and dead chickens. They were thrown upside down on the roads, behind houses, in idle areas, and encountered rainwater. The manure flowed through the ground, seriously polluting the surface water, and infected with the pathogens. Some farmers often slaughter chicken at the door of the chicken house, or throw the dead chicken to dogs and cats at random, without disinfection, which may easily cause outbreaks in the flock.

Disease prevention and control is not standardized

1. There is no corresponding measure for the epidemic prevention of diseases. Vaccines are not required during transportation, storage, and use, and the immunization program is arbitrarily changed.
2. Disease, healthy chicken polyculture. When individual chickens appear in the flock, they simply focus on treatment, neglect isolation and prevention, and create conditions for the spread and epidemic of the disease.

3. Despise disinfection. Individual chicken farms and chicken farmers cannot correctly understand the importance of disinfection, and only one-sided pursuit of reducing the cost of breeding, ignoring the disinfection work, leaving hidden dangers to the outbreak of the disease.
