Innovation Showcase 2.2: Broiler genetic selection through the decades… and the consequences to broiler breeders

Modern broilers have been selected for growth, yield, and feed efficiency. A negative relationship between growth and reproductive performance in poultry has been well established. Feed restriction programs have been implemented to support reproductive performance in broiler breeders. In this webinar, Dr. Valerie Carney talks about the results of a study that investigated the evolution of maternal feed restriction practices over 60 years of selection for broiler productivity.
