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 ...

BackgroundMaintaining and improving gut health is fundamentally important as the gut supports optimal digestion and therefore performance and profitability of production. Managing gut health through barrier function is regarded as a new frontier for disease prevention across different species [1]. In poultry, considerable research has been done on improving animal performance and gut health throug ...

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 ...

Virtually all modern commercial broiler diets are supplemented with liquid oil or fat. This provides energy, improves the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, provides essential fatty acids and acts as a lubricant and dust control agent in feed processing. There has been renewed interest in the use of full fat oilseed meals to replace a portion of added feed grade fat as the price dynamics between ...

The energy cost in broiler diets is likely to continue to increase in the future. Data on heat increment of raw materials used in poultry feed formulations are lacking. An examination of methods to determine net energy is necessary to further develop an accurate net energy assay system. An indirect calorimetry system has been developed at UNE to gather information on respirator ...

SummaryThis paper discusses the use of alternative feed ingredients in poultry nutrition. The importance and limitations, particularly the presence of anti-nutritive factors, of such ingredients are highlighted. The results of a series of studies recently completed or ongoing at the University of New England, Australia, suggest that the nutritive value of such ingredients can be improved through s ...

Interesting article about Distillers Dried Grains. Meat quality was not considered in this experiment but according to the literature negligible differences would be expected.
Article published the June 15, 2011
Distillers´ dried grains with solubles (DDGS) are increasingly becoming important in poultry feeding. Research into the use of this material has focused largely on maize DDGS from North America and less work has been done on the predominantly sorghum DDGS that are produced in Australia. In preliminary tests, we investigated the variation in nutrient composition of sorghum DDGS and then condu ...
