Poultry farmers asked to supplement Vitamin C in feed

Though temperatures have reduced, poultry farmers were asked to continue supplementation of Vitamin C and electrolytes through feed and drinking water to improve heat tolerance in birds.
A press release from Agromet Field Unit of Veterinary College and Research Institute and Regional Meteorological Centre, Chennai, said that the sky would be partly cloudy and remain dry in the next four days.
The maximum and minimum temperature was expected to be around 36 degree Celsius and 23 degree Celsius respectively.
The release said that the general cloudiness and evening wind would keep the maximum day-time low which would give relief to birds from heat stress.
However, farmers were asked to continue supplementing Vitamin C to improve tolerance in birds.
