IKTA Quail population and production status from 2011-2018

Grand Parent Stock (GPS) IKTA Quail Farm was transferred from Institut Kemajuan Ternakan Ayam (IKTA), Johor to Institute of Poultry Technology (ITU), Melaka in 2010. Consequently, ITU has taken a role in supplying and producing DOQ (Day-Old Quail) to the parent stock farms. IKTA quail population is currently 1,596 birds consist of 532 birds of Male Line and 1,064 birds of Female Line kept in the closed-house with cages system. Selection programmed for the replacement and genetic conservation were made at 35 days based on the weight of 280 g and maintained up to 70 weeks. IKTA quail shows an efficient growth and production thus able to supply 136,000 DOQ to existing PS farms in the industry. To increased the productivity and efficiency of quail production, genetic stability research work need to be done and thereby enhance the growth of the country's quail breeding industry.
