Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis describes a control tool for managers of a Broiler Breeder Farm, a farm which raises chickens for the purpose of fertile egg production. It presents the development of a simulation of a Broiler Breeder Farm which uses a deterministic step by step process to generate expected values of variables which represent the behavior of the farm. For the purpose of the simulation, the Broiler Breeder Farm was considered a system which is affected by factors related to the physiology of the birds and to management practices. Some of these factors were taken into account as parameters and variables in the simulation while assumptions were made regarding others because of the difficulty in measuring them. The simulation was developed using FORTRAN 77 as the programming language and its application is shown by three examples. The results obtained from the application of the simulation indicate that the simulation can be used to assist the Broiler Breeder Farm manager in the planning and decision making regarding the requirement which should be met in order to satisfy the needs of the flock.
