I. INTRODUCTIONGlobally, maize and wheat are the major cereal grains used in broiler feed. Maize is predominant in Asia and the Americas, whereas wheat is in Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Extensive research has been undertaken in refining dietary strategies to optimise broiler performance when offered reduced crude protein (CP) diets. In feed, these grains have been optimized by the inclusion ...

I. INTRODUCTIONReductions in crude protein (CP) contents of broiler diets have been realised for decades by routine additions of unbound (synthetic or crystalline) methionine, lysine and threonine, and are likely to continue as inclusion costs for the balance of amino acids become more feasible. Reduced-CP diets have the potential to provide environmental advantages from attenuated nitrogen and am ...

INTRODUCTIONPoultry production is one of the largest sources of animal protein supply for human consumption in the world. For many countries, like Australia, chicken-meat is the dominant animal protein, therefore production must continue to expand to supply increasing demand. In Australia, for instance, per capita consumption of chicken-meat is predicted to increase by 7.9% over the next 5 years [ ...

I. INTRODUCTIONThe inclusion of exogenous phytases in diets for broiler chickens has developed into a routine practice because of their positive phosphoric and extra-phosphoric effects. On one hand, phytase liberates phytate-bound phosphorus (PP) which is found in all plant-sourced feedstuffs as the dominant P fraction. On the other, phytase enhances amino acid (AA) digestibilities, essentially be ...

I. INTRODUCTIONCrude protein-reduced broiler diets have the potential to provide tangible advantages in respect of economics, bird welfare, flock health and the environment. Moderate reductions in dietary crude protein (CP) levels can be achieved without compromising broiler performance when coupled with judicious synthetic amino acid inclusions. However, there appears to be a threshold where furt ...

I. INTRODUCTIONDietary electrolyte balance (DEB) is defined by the interrelationship between sodium (Na+), potassium (K+) and chloride (Cl-) where DEB = Na++K+ -Cl- as mEq/kg and it plays an influential role in homeostasis of the body fluids. Borges et al. (2004) investigated DEB in two experiments and concluded that there was a quadratic effect on weight gain and feed conversion efficiency (FCE) ...

A previous study highlighted differences between a low protein (LP) diet and a higher concentration of amino acids (AA) for intestinal permeability and performance (Barekatain et al. 2018). It is hypothesised that individual AA such as glycine (Gly), glutamine (Gln) and arginine (Arg) may improve gut health and barrier function of birds fed LP diets. To test this hypothesis in a broiler study, two ...

Both glucose and amino acids are essential for muscle protein deposition and feed conversion efficiency. Total tract nitrogen retention was reported to be influenced by protein and starch digestion in broiler chickens (Liu et al., 2013). Embracing the concept of digestive dynamics and applying it in practical diet formulation requires understanding of the variations of protein and starch digestion ...
