Effect of Ventilation on Distribution, Concentration and Emission of Air Pollutants in a Manure-belt Layer House
A new study from China indicates that it is difficult to control both poultry house environment and pollutant concentrations using only ventilation....
Effect of Maternal Vitamin D Source on Broiler Hatching Egg Quality, Hatchability and Progeny
A reduction in embryonic mortality was observed in a field trial in Canada when broiler breeders received additional 25-hydroxy vitamin D in the drinking water but the long-term effects were negligible on the performance or bone strength of the offspring....
