The AgriFutures Australia Chicken Meat Program nutrition logo.Research in meat chicken nutrition has improved productivity over the last 20 years. There is still much to learn and opportunities to keep improving.

The brief, informative ‘Breeder nutrition’ and ‘Broiler nutrition’ videos by Cobb-Vantress explains the nutrition needs of chickens and how they change as they grow. There is a great overview of meat chicken, or broiler, feeds and feeding in Australia on Australian Chicken Meat Federation’s ‘About the industry’ page.

To read more detailed information about the nutrient requirements of chicken, feed ingredients, feed evaluation and feed formulation visit the PoultryHub.
