Copper and Lysine Density Responses in Commercial Broilers
Dietary copper supplementation improved the growth rate of broilers in a recent study from China but there was no evidence of an interaction between copper and amino acid density on bird performance....
Global Warming: How Does It Relate to Poultry?
Understanding how greenhouse gas (GHG) figures are generated and what the poultry industry can do to further reduce the impact remains important, explains Claudia S. Dunkley, Extension Poultry Scientist at the University of Georgia's Department of Poultry...
Poultry CRC Broiler Breeder Research in a Commercial Setting
Poultry CRC-supported PhD student, Sarah Weaver, at the University of Adelaide in Austalia in researching the relationship between breeder hen environment and subsequent broiler chick performance....
Effect of High-dose Irradiation on Quality Characteristics of Ready-to-eat Broiler Breast Fillets
High-dose irradiation of chicken breast fillets followed by storage at room temperature shows potential for the safe preservation of ready-to-eat products, according to new research from Brazil....
Using Litter Amendments during Broiler Grow-out for Better Production, Health and Environment
Studies by the University of Delaware show that repeated application of sodium bisulphate reduced ammonia emissions from broiler litter, as well as improving performance, foot pad health and Salmonella counts....
Welfare Quality Parameters Do Not Always Reflect Hen Behaviour
Research at Michigan State University reveals that although the average response of a laying flock may appear consistent across time or treatment, there may be marked differences between hens within the same flock in terms of their welfare score and behaviour....
Reducing Crude Protein Variability and Maximising Savings When Formulating Feeds
University of Georgia research shows how variability can be reduced and cost savings on broiler production can be achieved using two bins for storing corn (maize) and soybean meal prior to feed formulation. ...
Urbanisation Drives Asian Egg Demand
The growth of the middle classes and urbanisation of the population in Asia is radically changing the economy in Asian countries as well as the egg industries, reports poultry industry analyst, Terry Evans, for 5m Publishing....
Managing Heat and Minimum Ventilation Systems in the Broiler House
It is important that, from the first day, the broiler house, heating system and ventilation equipment are all in top working order. Researchers from several US universities explain how to do that in 'MSU Cares' from Mississippi State University....
Importance of Hatchery Climate to Chick Quality
Hatchery managers need to take into account the conditions outside the incubators and not rely on pre-defined set points, advises Martin 'Tiny' Barten, senior hatchery specialist with Pas Reform....
Necrotic Enteritis: Applications for the Poultry Industry
A review of the aetiology, epidemiology, predisposing factors, clinical signs, prevention and treatment of this economically important intestinal disease of poultry by researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University....
Effect of Eggshell Abnormalities on Table Egg Quality during Storage
Eggshell apex abnormalities were found by researchers in Brazil to increase egg weight loss during storage and reduce shell strength but the internal quality of these egg was no different from those of normal shape....
Energy Content and Amino Acid Digestibility Are Affected by Removal of Oil from DDGS
Research at Auburn University shows that low-oil distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) has a much lower energy level and a different digestible amino acid profile, information that will help more precisely to formulate broiler feeds using different...
Protect Backyard Birds from Predators
Knowing your enemy is critical if you expect to win the war against predators and protect your backyard poultry flock, according to experts from several US universities writing in 'MSU Cares' from Mississippi State University Extension Service....
Effect of Various Sources and Levels of Iodine for Young Laying Hens
Researchers in Poland have been able to increase the iodine level in eggs using iodine supplementation of a diet based on maize and soybean meal but not one containing rapeseed meal....
