Driehoek Feeds - 2009
Broiler Feeds

Three phases are available namely
Starter, Grower and Finisher. These three rations are available in both
a meal and pellet form and can be incorporated in a two or three phase feeding system. It is however
strongly recommended to rather use the three phase feeding system.

Driehoek also has a lower density budget range available.  It is important to note that when good
management principles are practiced the more expensive high density range will always be a better
and more economical option. The cost of gaining weight is what determines the economy of the
operation from a nutritional point of view.

Adult birds will expend about two thirds of the energy they derive from the feed purely for maintenance
purposes (breathing, walking, maintain body temperature etc), while only a third remains for actual
growth.  This partly explains why it is mostly more profitable to use the more expensive higher density
product range.  

Three Phase Feeding

                                           








For smaller units where the farmer prefers not to keep three rations (
Starter, Grower and Finisher) two phase feeding can also be implemented.  It is however, not advisable to change from a Starter ration directly
to a
Finisher.  With two phase feeding.  Broiler Grower should be used after the Starter until slaughter.

The rations are completely balanced and contain a growth stimulant and coccidiostat at the
recommended levels.
