Broiler Finisher Feed Formula

Broiler finisher feed is the feed or diet that is specifically formulated and given to broiler chickens in the final stage or phase of their growth, typically when they are about 4 weeks old. Broiler finisher helps the broilers to reach their target market weight more quickly, and it can also improve their overall health and strength to hold their rapidly increasing body weight.

Broilers require a high-quality finisher diet for quick meat and weight development as well as healthy, profitable chickens to prepare them for slaughter. An excellent broiler finisher feed should provide the required dietary energy and protein needs of the young broiler until it reaches the target market weight. The metabolizable energy (ME) of broiler finisher feed should be 3100-3200 kcal/kg and the crude protein (CP) should be (18-19%).
