Recognise the effects of elevated temperatures and act accordingly
During periods of elevated temperatures in the broiler house, particularly in combination with high humidity, broilers can show signs of discomfort and reduced performance. These signs are easy to recognise:
- Lifted wings
- Decreased feed intake
- Increased water intake
- Reduced activity levels
The active components in Farm-O-San AHS contribute to maintaining optimal performance, even when the temperature rises in the poultry house.
How to manage the flock if it is exposed to elevated temperatures?
Discomfort as a result of elevated temperatures is particularly seen once the birds are 4-6 weeks old. By that time, their metabolism is very active to support maximum growth, and their plumage starts to develop. To avoid loss in performance and mortality, a number of measures can be taken to help the broilers control their body temperature.
- Reduce stocking density
- Increase ventilation
- Provide cold drinking water
- Provide feed during periods of low temperature
- Adapt nutrition

How can nutritional supplements help broilers during periods of elevated temperatures?
Broilers cannot sweat, they start panting instead. This results in an increase of the blood pH and in dehydration and loss of electrolytes. Even small changes in blood pH and electrolyte levels can have dramatic consequences for the chickens and their future performance and can result in mortality. Additionally, exposure to elevated temperatures results in increased levels of cortisol and oxidative imbalance.
To support broilers during periods with elevated temperature, supplementation with crucial ingredients such as bicarbonate, electrolytes, vitamin C and magnesium is important to deal with all metabolic changes. This ensures that the birds’ blood pH remains stable, optimal hydration levels are maintained and oxidative stress and cortisol levels are controlled.
