STEROIDS USE IN BROILER A MYTH OR REALITY?
Being a Veterinarian and Animal Nutritionist, its my duty to tell You The real picture of our Poultry Industry.
So here is the Answer to my Question , “it’s just a Myth” because you cannot use steroids in diet of broiler it will increase the cost of production and management.
STEROIDS USE IN BROILER A MYTH OR REALITY
Poultry is well developed sector worldwide as well as Pakistan, it reached 99% of its success due to import of genetically improved breeds like leghorn. People asked why the cost of poultry meat is not stable? Because the Management conditions changed in different seasons and now a days cost of broiler feed is also increased due to which price of broiler is at high level.
And the second most Frequently asked question from every veterinarian is,
“How can u justify that a 40 g chick converted into 2.5 kg chicken in just 33 days while Conventional chicken take more than 6 months in that Process?”
Many People ask me and absolutely will ask you the same Question when you will tell them about no use of steroids in Poultry.
Here is the Answer for this Question,
We have genetically superior strains of Broiler used in Pakistan including Hubbard, Arbor Acer, Ross, Cobb. They have Better feed conversion Ratio (Ability to convert Feed into desired Components specially meat) and there is limited waste of Feed in terms of Fecal material. And the Poultry Feed used in Pakistan is Purely balanced diet for Broilers (Made strictly according to the Nutritive Requirement of Chickens). So genetically Superior Strains of Broiler and Better Poultry Feed these are the two Reasons for better Weight gain in Broiler chickens.
POINT TO NOTE :
You can’t get that kind of weight gain From Desi chicken even by offering the same Poultry Feed just because Genetically they have no such potential, Also Economically it’s not feasible to use steroids in Poultry it will increase the cost of Chicken ten times more.
