Growth, Water Intake, Litter Moisture, Carcass and Physiological Traits of Broiler Chickens as Affected by Dietary Potassium
Broiler growth performance was better with a lower level of potassium in an experiment in South Korea. Substituting potassium sulphate for the carbonate salt improved water and feed intake, increased mortality and affected carcass composition....
Clostridium perfringens in Poultry Feed Ingredients and Control with Chemical Treatments
The pathogen that causes necrotic enteritis in broilers, Clostridium perfringens, was found in 60 per cent of feed samples in Brazil, where researchers found that some chemical treatments were effective in reducing contamination. ...
Iowa State University Animal Industry Report 2014
Iowa State University's Department of Animal Science has published its annual Animal Industry Report for 2014, which includes a number of reports of its work on poultry....
Characterisation of Eimeria in Australia
Coccidiosis in Australia is widespread, species are ubiquitous, dynamic and genetically diverse, and this diversity does not appear to be geographically structured, according to new research from the University of Queensland reported by Poultry CRC....
Collaborative Studies on Cyanosis in Broiler Breeders
New research at Mississippi State University has increased understanding on cyanosis, a blue or purple colour of the skin in broiler breeders. They found differences in heart function between the three genetic lines they studied and a lower incidence...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Americas Account for 20 Per Cent of Global Egg Output
Global egg output is heading towards 68 million tonnes, with the Americas producing one-fifth of the total, reports poultry industry analyst, Terry Evans, in his latest look at egg production in that region....
Vocalisation Study Provides Insight into the Well-being of Birds in Grow-out Houses
Sensors capable of reliably monitoring the well-being of birds reared in confined housing currently do not exist but researchers from Georgia Tech Research Institute are making progress on using the noises made by broilers to indicate health or welfare...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Goose Meat Output Slows
Global goose meat production, like that of all the other poultry meat sectors, has slowed in recent years, writes poultry industry analyst, Terry Evans. ...
How Can I Keep the Livestock Watering System from Freezing in Winter?
Tips for keeping vital water supplies to farm livestock in winter from the US National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service....
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Record World Duck Meat Production in 2013
Global duck meat output reached a record high in 2011, the latest year for which data are available, according to industry analyst, Terry Evans. Asia as a region dominates the world production league table and China accounts for almost 80 per cent of...
Improving Performance of Laying Hens in Hot Regions by Desert Coolers
Egg layers in a deep litter house fitted with desert coolers laid significantly more eggs and with a better feed conversion than birds in a control house without a cooling system, according to a recent experiment in Jordan. The net margin per bird was...
Bacteriophage-induced Reduction in Salmonella Enteritidis Counts in the Crop of Broiler Chickens
Research from Brazil shows that bacteriophage therapy of broilers can reduce Salmonella contamination of their carcasses by lowering the number of bacteria in the live birds....
Sambucus nigra Extracts Inhibit Infectious Bronchitis Virus at an Early Point during Replication
Sambucus nigra (common elderberry) extract was found in an in-vitro studies in the US to inhibit the Infectious Bronchitis virus at an early point in infection....
Studies on Newly Emerging Reassortant Very Virulent Infectious Bursal Disease Viruses
Current breeder vaccination programmes may not adequately protect birds against the more recent very virulent strains of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), concludes an Ohio State University researcher from a new study....
Evaluation of Different Strategies for Broiler Feed Formulation Using Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy
Using Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIRS) for the amino acid content of the raw materials in the feed formulation for broilers improved bodyweights, without affecting feed conversion, according to new research from Mexico....
