Look-Think-Act: use the signals that broilers give you
Broilers are fast growing animals that need constant care. There is no time for correcting mistakes: prevention is therefore crucial. Proper management starts with recognizing signals in practice.
Broiler Signals provides practical advice for poultry-keepers, managers, technical staff and veterinarians in order to optimise the environment and health of their broilers. This broiler focused management will improve the production and welfare of the broilers and hence the poultry farmer’s economic results.
Keeping broilers is like a Formula 1 race: there’s no time for mistakes.
Both book and e-learning Broiler Signals follow the life cycle of these fast growing animals. Every stage is discussed and important aspects are highlighted. Focussing on animal-oriented procedures, the concept is vital for poultry-farmers and anyone involved in poultry management on a regular basis. For poultry-farmers, this means being alert when in the poultry house, watching and listening to the animals, paying attention to their environment and their behavior as individuals and as a group. This usually provides important information about your animals’ health, well-being and production.

Poultry Signals® concept
Broiler Signals is part of the Poultry Signals® concept. The Poultry Signals® concept is based on Look-Think-Act and focuses on three main questions; What do I see? Why does this happen? What should I do?
This implies that the information is presented in a very visual way. Many photographs, illustrations and diagrams tell the story. Practical knowledge comes first and complex theory will be limited to an absolute minimum. In this way the information is easily absorbed and easily brought into practice by the reader.
