The livestock and poultry breeding industry has become one of the important industries in China. With the advancement of science and technology and the development of society, large- scale intelligent livestock and poultry breeding farms have slowly replaced traditional small-scale breeding farms. Large-scale breeding requires monitoring and control of the breeding environment. If we do not pay attention to the breeding environment, the losses will be much greater than those of small-scale farms. So what are the factors that affect the growth rate and quality of livestock and poultry?
1. Suitable temperature.
During the growth of livestock and poultry, proper temperature plays an important role in its growth. If the temperature is low, it will cause animals to catch cold and cause respiratory diseases. Animals will warm up in groups, affecting their foraging and walking, and may even cause group injuries. If the temperature is too high, livestock and poultry will produce anorexia and affect their growth. High temperatures can also cause indigestion of livestock and poultry, which can cause disease.
2. Suitable humidity.
Too humid or too dry air can easily lead to respiratory diseases of livestock and poultry. The air with proper humidity can keep the animals and birds breathing smoothly. The smooth breathing makes the metabolism of animals and poultry reach a more ideal state, so that it can grow to a good state.
3. Suitable oxygen concentration.
Oxygen is an essential gas for human and animal metabolism. In the process of livestock and poultry breeding, it is necessary to ensure that there is sufficient oxygen in the farm to allow the animals to breathe easily. Sufficient oxygen can ensure that the animals live easily and their blood circulation.
4. Reduce the carbon dioxide concentration in the farm;
Although carbon dioxide gas can play a role in keeping warm, carbon dioxide is a gas not conducive to breathing, and its concentration should be controlled. The appropriate concentration of carbon dioxide gas can keep warm, and can also promote animal respiration.
5. Reduce the concentration of ammonia and H2S in the farm;
Most of the ammonia and H2S gases come from the gas produced during defecation of livestock and poultry, which are harmful to the growth of livestock and poultry. Therefore, breeders need to regularly clean up animal manure in order to maintain low concentrations of ammonia and H2S gas.
6. Need proper lighting.
Light also plays a key role in the growth of livestock and poultry, and sufficient light can make its physiological functions develop normally. In particular, young birds and egg birds need more light.
7. Keep animals happy.
Animals also have emotions. During the breeding process, playing some light music to the animals when appropriate can keep the animals in a good mood, which can also speed up the pace of their growth.
In fact, there are many factors that affect animal growth, such as dust particles, breeding density, and feeding methods. All these need to be mastered one by one by the breeding workers in the breeding process, and try to be as precise as possible, so that breeding becomes easy, efficient and high-yielding.
