The second edition of the Adisseo Research Grant awarded three winners. The jury was impressed by the quality and relevance of all three winning projects, that can split a whopping 1 million Euro for the coming 3 years. The award ceremony took place last month at the World’s Poultry Congress in Paris, France. Apart from a positive impact on sustainability, the proposed research projects for ...

IntroductionWater is considered an essential nutrient as it is involved in every metabolic function of the body. It represents about 70% of body weight, and its body content decreases per weight unit as the animal ages, despite the increase in water consumption. Water turnover rate is high compared to that of other compounds (Leeson & Summers, 1997).Water intake is a determinant of broiler per ...

I am enjoying very much all this discussion. Thanks, Dr. Guevara for bringing your paper to this forum. Just to reinforce, least cost feed formulation starts with different paradigms that are difficult to make broad comparisons. The ingredient data base, with nutrient composition is, most of the time, not adjusted in a real time situation. Also, not all companies have strong laboratory support to ...

Dear Dr. Ruiz! I am very glad on reading your text. It is very clear and you were able to demonstrate your points based on literature review and long experience working in this field. This paper must be saved in all archives that discuss soybean meal quality, to be used, when needed. Thanks for all knowledge shared.

I fully agree with Dr. Waldroup's consideration. Let's avoid confusion where it is not there.

I totally agree, Mike! Sometimes I see people treating the water with no water analysis.

I totaly agree! Water with more than 1000 ppm of TDS can require an amount of acid not practical to adjust the pH. But, as it was said, each case requires analisys of samples of water from the same source in different conditions of the year.

Dear All!I reinforce the comment of Dr. Charles Ibe, together with all alternatives used to reduce heat stress effect, we should not forget the water temperature, that usually becomes high at high environmental temperature. When we talk about water temperature, at hot environment cooler the better. How many farms are cooling sistematicaly the water for the broilers?

Dear All!Nice comments on water acidification. However, none of the participants suggested the final water pH, after acid treatment, that will be effective. Can we discuss a little about the value that we should expect?
