Whenever raw materials are bought and stored, an assumption is usually made that the finished products produced will be of the same weight as the raw materials used during production. Ironically, this does not happen. There are always variances in weight of the end products. The finished products are usually less in weight as compared to the raw materials used. Where are these variances coming fro ...

for least cost formulation, I would go for MS Excel. It works magic for me. All these programmes used are nice, but for Excel its simple and anyone can master it.

The gut is more healthy and more thick (heavy) especially gizzard. This explane the lower dressing rate 4. The low fat deposition is olso observed du to à lower growth rate 5. But a slow growth compared with pellet feed but the third point can be improve ...

One of the reasons is that birds spend more energy when fed with mash than when fed with pellets: most of this difference comes from the greater number of accesses to the feeder, as birds have to frequently stop feeding to go drinking - to clean their mouth from the dust than is part in the mash feed. If you could feed the birds with a mash containing no dust - i.e. made up only of particles above ...
