Abstract :

Poultry production is one of the rapidly growing sectors in the livestock industry. The major affecting factor for the poultry industry is heat stress. It occurs when the temperature of animals increases beyond a specific limit. It is found to be a significant cause of low productivity, reproductive performance, and economic losses in poultry. Several strategies have been adopted to alleviate the harmful impact of HS on poultry farming. Feeding management, water availability, thermal manipulation, and proper ventilation may prevent the poultry sector from heat stress.
