Juarez Donzele - While I agree that a true Negative Control is the halmark of good experimental desing, this study appears to have been more of a practical field trial, wherein multiple diets can be very hard to accomodate without introducing other problems. I think Martin's comments about other nutrients being first limiting is a more significant concern in this case. From the broiler literatur ...

Adam Fahrenholz - That is a point that doesn't get enough attention. Some ways to improve pellet quality can damage nutrients. Reza Abudollahi at Massey has done a lot to explore this aspect. Unfortunately I don't see that his work gets much attention stateside. A durable pellet at too large a cost in terms of nutrient availability doesn't pay for iteslf.

Park W. Waldroup Since 2017, drugs considered medically important by the FDA can not be used solely for growth promotion in the US. The problem with this is that bacitracin, which is used in human medicine, can be used to promote growth in animals because FDA unlike WHO does not consider it medically important. Bacitracin has recently been shown to select for bacteria that carry the mcr-1 gene tha ...

Park W. Waldroup,Any description of antibiotic use in livestock has become a description of "overfeeding of antibiotics" in popular press for years now. It's concerning, though not surprising, that an industry trade site would use the phrase. Particularly since many sponsors who peddle alternatives use it as well.No one did anything nefarious, true, but it really doesn't matter at this point. The ...

Oscar Briceño Unless something has changed in the last decade or so, you can't. I did my PhD in methionine for pigs, and had a whole section on methionine alternatives in my first chapter. It was hypothesized that as a methyl-donor, betaine could spare methionine (itself a major methyl donor). In vitro liver homogenate trials showed some potential. However, when tested in vivo, my recollection is ...

Kasame Trakullerswilai Chlorine dioxide efficacy will depend on the pH of the water. As long as the pH is sufficiently low "Yes" continuous chlorination can be helpful.HMTBa is has a good pKa for water acidification (3.6), but it is a rather large molecule (150 g/mol) so the dose would need to be quite high relative to an acid with a similar pKa such as formic (pKa 3.77 and 46 g/mol).As for the ta ...

Joshua Jendza Field trials using an organic acid blend of propionic, acetic and benzoic acids administered the first two weeks and the last week of the growout have shown a significant impact on reducing Salmonella at processing (bird washes). Organic acids used at the "proper" dose early and late in the growout addresses early colonization and late recontamination. What you're doing is reducing b ...
