Zinpro Corp. launched two global tools — the Zinpro BlueBox and Perfect Carcass Tool — that are designed to assist poultry producers in increasing and maximizing their production and profitability.
The Zinpro BlueBox is an eggshell quality evaluation tool developed by Zinpro with a specific scoring system that assesses the structure of eggs by examining translucency and color, the company said in its announcement.
The Zinpro BlueBox is a custom-made blue metal enclosure that allows for the translucency of eggs to be captured and evaluated in a quantitative method using the Zinpro egg scoring system. The results from this program help address production and nutritional improvement opportunities that could provide producers with a stronger return on investment and avoid a potential reduction in chick numbers from eggs exhibiting subclinical defects that are prone to produce a poor-quality chick, Zinpro said.
The Perfect Carcass Tool* is a visual guide system developed to support the poultry industry in identifying, quantifying and estimating the economic impact of defects found in broiler carcasses, Zinpro explained. The software tool is driven by databases that compare parameters among producers in the same geographic area, breed, densities, growing conditions and type of management.
The tool allows Zinpro to work with poultry operations to understand their needs and develop a customized nutrition solution to increase the carcass value, providing a wholesome and safe product to the consumer.
“It is important that we provide our customers with tools and solutions that allow them to make crucial business decisions regarding the health of their animals, while ensuring they are meeting their revenue goals and expectations,” said Paco Fernandez, global poultry advisory lead for Zinpro.
*Note: The Perfect Carcass Tool is only available to Zinpro customers.
