Water: The first thing to take
care of in poultry production
Not only is water scarce and we have to take care of it, but
appropriate importance is not given, nor is it studied as it should be.

the birds. Penz said a good water
source is easily spoiled on its
way to the animals.

Amount of water
For every kilogram of feed a
chicken eats, it drinks about
two liters of water (1.1 liter
per pound). Therefore, the availability of water at the farm must
be evaluated to avoid supply
problems.
In the last 25 years, water
consumption increased by 50%
in chickens. A farm built in 1990
must verify that its water source
will still meet the demands of
2020. Farm

availability must be
evaluated to avoid
supply problems.
Water is important from
the very start. Chicks arrive with
some level of dehydration, and
they can drink up to 40 percent of
their weight in water during the
first day. Penz said delaying water
consumption negatively affects
the chick's immune response.
Lack of water also affects
enterocytes, the chick's intestinal
absorptive cells. After 24 hours
of hatching, chicks that do not get
water and feed will

daily basis," said Mário Penz,
global strategic broiler account
director for Cargill Animal
Nutrition.
Water is one of his passions,
as he expressed during the Latin
American Poultry Summit in
Atlanta in February 2019.
It's well known that water is
scarce, but even today no serious
decisions are made about it, nor
do we care about the type of
water in poultry production.
On the farm, there are three
specific points we should
consider about water: quantity, quality and temperature.
These are especially important
on a new farm.
Farmers must know the
source of their water and protect
it all the way from the source to
