In this opportunity, aviNews International talked with Dr. Mojtaba Yegani about the importance of water as a nutrient.
Dr. Yegani is the founder of The Poultry Knowledge Group LLC and works as an independent consultant supporting the global poultry industry. He has been contributing to the “poultry sector” over the past 20 years in various capacities (live production, research & innovation, technical sales/marketing, and leadership) in several countries/continents.
From a nutritional point of view, people pay enough attention to nutrients such as amino acids, energy, vitamins, minerals, and others, but many nutritionists consider water a forgotten nutrient since it is essential for most physiological processes. However, if there is a lack of water or low quantity, the performance and health of animals can be impacted.
According to that, Dr. Yegani explained that water is essential for animals for the same reason that this is important for humans. Since water is the most essential nutrient for poultry, they need water to maintain their activities, grow, and also for the production of eggs and meat.
