1. Introduction At Astral, broiler chickens are reared in
large chicken houses, specifically designed to provide ample floor space, comfortable temperature, fresh air, free access to nutritious feed, potable water and suitable light intensity and duration. Broiler houses are either closed (artificially ventilated) or open-sided (naturally ventilated).
Strict hygiene standards are maintained through cleaning of floors and equipment with detergents (soap) followed by disinfection (sanitation) at the end of each production cycle. Bacterial tests are regularly conducted on cleaned floors and equipment to ensure the efficacy of cleaning chemicals and methods. This practice eliminates disease-causing organisms, thereby improving bird health.
