The technology of improving gosling production of White Roman geese in environmental-controlled house
It was known that the egg production in geese is associated with photo stimulation, in which light source, spectra, intensity, photoperiod and regimen have been proposed as factors for manipulating geese reproduction performance. The domestic geese showed an obvious seasonal pattern of reproductive activity under natural lighting conditions. In Taiwan, the common practice to induce egg production with the short lighting regime during prelaying period, followed by a long lighting regime during the laying period. Geese treated this way started laying egg within 1 month. This technology of lighting regime could increase egg production and fertility in geese.
