With the advent of the rains, it is very important to provide proper heating for chicks and piglets, reminds the Livestock Equipment Suppliers and Manufacturers Association of the Philippines.
Day-old chicks have to be provided with efficient brooders that will keep them warm during night and day, especially during the rainy months. The same is true with piglets which have to be protected from cold drafts and rain.
One of the most economical, yet efficient, brooders comes from Spain. It is called Infraconic and is distributed in the Philippines by Wencesco with offices at 292 Abad Santos St., Little Baguio, San Juan, Metro Manila.
