Platinum Brooding® - Deficiencies in brood management will negatively impact body weight targets, feed utilization, flock health, flock uniformity, meat yield, and other key areas of poultry performance. Platinum Brooding® revolves around the continuing education of producers and producer service persons, the establishment of accurate measurements and the thorough and accurate completion of a Platinum Brooding® checklist.
The program usually begins at 10:00 AM PST for our BC courses but please make sure you double-check. We will meet at the office of
