Plants extracts (PE) have shown promising effects on performance and intestinal health in broilers. Their potential as antimicrobial (AM) alternatives has been studied for years (Adhikari et al., 2020). A feeding study was conducted to examine the effect of a micro-encapsulated product composed of eugenol and garlic tincture on growth performance, mortality, intestinal lesions, jejunal gene expres ...

Published literature indicates that L-arginine (L-Arg), guanidinoacetic acid (GAA) and L-citrulline (L-Cit) can all provide arginine activity in broiler diets (Su and Austic, 1999; Dilger et al., 2013; DeGroot, 2018) and all are commercially available. GAA has been reported to have 77% arginine equivalence for feed conversion (Ringel et al., 2013). This study was conducted to determine the effect ...

Field pea (Pisum sativum) is a good source of protein but can also provide energy due to high starch content (Petterson et al., 1997). The slowly digestible starch in pea may improve energy utilization in broilers because of the prolonged elevated plasma glucose levels (Enting et al., 2005). Thus, partial replacement of soybean meal and wheat with pea may affect the net energy value of the diet. T ...

A feeding study was conducted to examine the efficacy of a synergistic blend of feed additives on growth performance, livability, gut integrity, immunity, caecal microflora and footpad health in broilers challenged with subclinical necrotic enteritis (NE). Additives were: A) synergistic blend of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), slow-release C12, target release butyrates, organic acids (OA) and a p ...

A study was conducted to investigate the hypothesis that over-processing (OP) of meat and bone meal (MBM) exacerbates infection with necrotic enteritis in normal and high phytase diets. A total of 768 Ross 308 male chicks were randomly assigned to 8 treatments with 6 replicate floor pens each housing 16 chicks using a 2 × 2 × 2 factorial arrangement of treatments for 42 d. Factors were ...

Necrotic enteritis (NE) is a poultry disease of global concern mainly due to reduced growth, increased mortality, and increased veterinary and management costs associated with it (Wade and Keyburn, 2015). Clostridium perfringens, a spore-forming gram-positive bacterium, is considered to be the causative agent of NE in chickens. In the past, the common remedy to ameliorate the negative effects of N ...

Phytate is a polyanionic molecule with the capacity to chelate Ca, forming mineral-phytate complexes. The presence of these complexes decreases the efficacy of phytase. Ca-phytate formation is dictated by molar ratios of the constituents, gastrointestinal pH and the concentration of dietary Ca relative to P (Sommerfeld et al., 2018). The hypothesis of this study was that a high dietary Ca to P rat ...

The dietary fibre content of poultry diets is frequently neglected during feed formulation, despite the prevalence of fibrous material in feed ingredients and notable impacts of fibre on the gastrointestinal tract environment. The extent of the influence of dietary fibre is dictated by the specific fibre fraction, i.e. primarily its solubility in gastrointestinal environmental conditions, as well ...

I. INTRODUCTIONThe AgriFutures Australia Chicken Meat Program funds research, development and extension activities for the benefit of the Australian chicken meat industry. Through the process of reviewing the 5-year strategic plan (RIRDC, 2014), the objectives were adjusted to align each objective with a stage of chicken meat production. This included the consolidation of all research related to t ...

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 ...
