Relation Between the Incidence of Ascites Syndrome and the Ventilation Factor in Broiler Chickens

Abstract: The Ascites syndrome is the primary cause of death for rapidly growing broiler strains, resulting in economic loss. The experiment carried out on male broilers to study the relation between the incidence rate of ascites syndrome and the ventilation factor in the northwest region of Iran. In this study, seven poultry houses which did not have standard ventilation conditions were selected. Then the ventilation conditions were improved by changing the inlet speed of the fan. The standard ventilation rate for the broilers in summer and winter is 4 and 0.7 m3 h-1 kg-1 body weight, respectively. There were significant (p<0.05) changes in the incidence rate of ascites syndrome and FCR between before and after the correction of ventilation conditions. During this study all other factors were fixed.
