Copper (Cu) is a vital element involved in various physiological and biochemical processes, namely cellular metabolism and enzyme systems. Higher levels of copper than nutritional requirements (up to 250 mg/kg) are supplemented to poultry diets. However, if in excess, excreted Cu can contaminate the environment. High levels of copper sulphate (CuSO4) may damage other dietary nutrients through incr ...

Copper (Cu) is an essential component involved in a wide variety of biochemical processes. It must be supplemented in the trace mineral premix as the amount present in raw materials is inadequate to meet broiler requirements. At levels higher than nutritional requirements (up to 250 mg/kg), dietary Cu addition enhances growth performance by altering gut microbiota and enhancing nutrient absorption ...

I. INTRODUCTIONFood borne illness costs Australia an estimated $1.2 billion per year (Hall et al., 2005). The annual report of the OzFoodnet network (2009) reported 9,533 cases of Salmonella infection. Although the eggs produced in Australia are of good quality, the egg industry is often blamed for cases of food poisoning due to Salmonellosis. Salmonellosis can be acquired by the ingestion of raw ...

Eggshell translucency is the appearance of lighter coloured regions of the shell visible when an egg is viewed over a light source. Some research has been conducted into the causes of translucency in the past but there has been little work recently and the cause of translucency remains uncertain. This study aimed to identify the structural cause of eggshell translucency and determine if translucen ...

This study is an update of data presented previously (Roberts & Chousalkar, 2012) from a study which investigated egg quality at different stages of lay. Although eggs produced in Australia are considered medium to low risk for food borne illness, the egg industry in Australia is periodically implicated in cases of food poisoning. Egg shell defects may potentiate the movement of bacteria into ...

Eggs were collected from Hy-Line brown flocks aged 33, 50 and 67 wk. Thirty eggs from each flock were analyzed to determine the reliability of MST (MS Technologies, U.K.) cuticle blue stain as an indicator of the presence of cuticle and the effective removal of cuticle by use of an EDTA solution. Another 30 eggs, collected at the same time from each flock, were processed for the quantification of ...
