Poultry Grower Webinar Series: Litter management between flocks and switchgrass bedding

01:07:13 | September 9, 2015

Learn about how switchgrass may provide a renewable bedding alternative that producers can grow on their own land.

How litter is managed before, during, and after each flock is a key factor for successful poultry growers. Litter management starts with the previous flock, and management of litter is critical between flocks. U.S. broiler growers almost exclusively use built-up litter in their houses and this webinar addresses how to successfully manage built-up litter. Pine shavings have been the bedding of choice for most of the U.S. poultry industry for several decades, but it is often in short supply. Learn about how Giant Miscanthus (switchgrass) may provide a renewable bedding alternative that producers can grow on their own land.

This is the second webinar in the Poultry Growers Webinar Series and is sponsored by Jones-Hamilton.
