"Correct doses of phytase,
protease and carbohydrase
enzymes all play a role in optimizing digestion and the gut
environment at this time," said
Adam Smith, DSM market
development manager - feed
enzymes EMEA. "This will help
to overcome the fact that digestibility of ingredients is lower and
that endogenous enzyme levels
are still on the increase."

What is a broiler super
pre-starter?
A diet fed to broiler chicks
for the first four days is often
referred to as a super pre-starter.

"It is important to provide
the neonatal chick with optimal
nutrients in the right ratio and
the right feed form," said Albert
Dijkslag, ForFarmers innovation
manager and  poultry nutritionist. "Ingredients should be
highly palatable as well as easily
digestible. You need to stimulate
the metabolism from the beginning and, as well as gut health,
it is essential to focus on skeletal
development."

What are their aims?
■ Promoting gut development

maintain body temperature.
Probiotics may added to diets
to seed the gut with beneficial
bacteria or protect it from
pathogens.
■ Supporting the immune

system
Development of the immune
system starts in the embryo
and continues after hatching. In the first week of life,
there is a rapid increase in the
number of leucocytes, due to
the growth of the lymphoid
organs. The synthesis of
immune cells is a metabolically expensive process and is
highly dependent on the presence of nucleotides. These
protein building blocks
can be found in significant
amounts in certain concentrated protein products.
■ Antioxidant protection

As for standard starter diets,
highly digestible ingredients are
selected, but high-quality, highvalue raw materials are used,
more than doubling their cost.
Different sources of protein, fats
and carbohydrates will be used.

first two weeks of life. It is
this organ that is driving body
weight gain and as such requires up to 40 percent of the
energy and protein that the
young bird consumes. High
protein content is also necessary in diets for young birds,

A specific vitamin and mineral pre-mix would be used
in super-pre starters to meet
the specific needs. Focusing
on other potential negative
influences, such as oxidative
stress, can also optimize a
bird's potential. As such, diets
may contain particular levels
and highly available sources
of vitamin E and selenium.
For example, selenoproteins
play an important role in protecting the body from damage
by free radicals.
