Research Personnel Leader:

Research Duration Start:
1 July 2019
31 June 2021
Research Location CLSU (Central Luzon)
Research Description Generally, broilers are reared on litter floor and a good quality litter is very important in broiler production. There are different types of litter materials used by poultry raisers. Some of these are sawdust, rice hull, rice straw, sand, con cobs and sugarcane bagasse. Many studies have been conducted particularly on the comparison of growth performance of broilers as affected by different litter materials. Rice hull as identified as one of the best litter materials for broilers in terms of growth performance and feed conversion.
Research Objectives To develop a decontaminating machine of rice hull as litter floor for broiler breeder production, specifically, 1) to design a decontaminating machine, 2) to fabricate a decontaminating machine, 3) to evaluate the performance of the decontaminating machine, and 4) to evaluate the litter materials after decontamination
Research Beneficiary(ies) Poultry growers Broiler breeders and growers
