Jaarlikse ramaankope, ooiseleksie en die versorging en seleksie van jong ooie verseker genetiese vordering! Die jong ooie of vervangingsootjies dra by tot die genetiese vordering of verbetering in die kudde en verhoed dat die ooitrop se gemiddelde ouderdom nie te hoog raak nie. Dit word gedoen deur al die ooie wat deur die jaar op grond van ouderdom, swak produksie en lae reproduksie uitgeskot word, te vervang met beter jong ooie. Navorsing bevestig wat produsente oor die jare ervaar: Ooitjies wat gedurende die eerste 2 maande na geboorte goed gegroei het, presteer baie beter oor die res… Read More
