Nationwide Campaign To Promote “Stress Free Summer” for Poultry Producers
Series of technical seminars, workshops and customer training sessions conducted across India
Chennai, INDIA (May 2017) – Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to create solutions for half the world’s population, has started a “Stress Free Summer” campaign to help poultry farmers learn how a holistic systemic approach to heat stress can improve production and profitability.
The stress of summertime heat can bring down egg production in layers and breeders, increase feed conversion ratio (FCR) in broilers and affect the overall performance of birds. Typically, poultry producers may see up to a 10 percent drop in production during summer months. With India’s current drought conditions and hotter-than-normal predicted temperatures, producers are expecting to see a 25 to 30 percent productivity drop this summer.
“At Kemin, we always work in partnership with our customers. With our ‘Stress Free Summer’ campaign, we identified a challenge our customers face, and designed an educational campaign to help them strategically manage their birds’ health and productivity in the summer,” said Mr. R Kannan, Director of Marketing for Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health.
The nationwide “Stress Free Summer” campaign has already covered the Southern, Eastern and Western regions of India. With five customer trainings and eight seminars, the Kemin team of experts, including consultants Dr. Jayaraman, Dr. Prajapati, Dr. R.K Pathak, and veterinarians Dr. Saravanan, Dr. Venket Shelke, Dr. Narendra Reddy, have educated more than 750 customers.
“Our technical team has been sharing insights in farm management, feeding management, water management and disease management,” said Kannan. “These conversations provide actionable solutions to combat heat stress for a more productive, profitable summer.”
