A seminar on the use of quality feed for poultry recently took place,
organised by Sampoorna Feeds and the American Soybean Association.
Hundreds of poultry farmers from different districts in and around Srinagar,
India, attended the programme. Experts paid special interest to the use of
quality feed, particularly for growing chicks.
Regional marketing manager of Sampoorna Feeds, Dr Kiram
Sandhi, proposes that instead of asking for low rate poultry feed, they should
want to receive better quality feed from the suppliers.
Focus on quality feed
Responding to the queries from
farmers that Sampooran feed cost them Rs3 (US$0.07) extra, Sandhi said, "Our
feed is highly nutritional and a balanced diet for the growing chicks and helps
in the quick growth of the poultry birds."
Ashish Gupta of Sampoorna
Feeds gave a detailed account of the different contents in the feed they
produce. "Farmers should concentrate more on Value Conversion Ratio instead of
demanding low rate feed," Gupta said, adding that they were supplying feed to
the farmers on nominal rates.
