INTRODUCTION Genetic selection in poultry has progressed continuously since the early 1960s, resulting in faster growth rates and higher meat production (Havenstein et al., 2003a,b). Over the past 60 years, body weight gain has increased fourfold from 1957 to 2005 with a simultaneous 50% reduction in feed conversion ratio and 79% higher Pectoralis major yield in males and 85% in females (Zui ...

Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) is nowadays a common tool to analyze the nutritional content of feedstuffs. Corn hybrids and drying temperatures could affect the nutritional value of the grain. It is important to determine if these factors are detected by NIR. Two corn hybrids (Dekalb 68-05 and Dekalb 65-20) varying in kernel hardness (average and hard respectively) were dried at thr ...

Amino acid pullet nutrition affects growth and development and it is important to evaluate potential effects on egg traits. One experiment was conducted to determine the effects of four amino acid (AA) dietary levels fed to broiler breeder pullets during the rearing phase from 5 to 24wk of age on egg characteristics. A total of 1,360 Cobb-500 slow-feathering pullets were placed in 16 floor pens (8 ...

Heavy broilers with high breast meat yield are more susceptible to heat stress. Under high relative humidity, indoor air velocity (AV) becomes critical to offer optimal environmental conditions for growth and health. Four experiments were conducted under southeastern summer conditions to evaluate the effects of AV treatments (High vs. Low) on live performance, cut-up yields, meat quality and welfa ...

Adequate pullet nutrition is essential to obtain the BW and development suitable for reproduction. An experiment was conducted to determine the effects of four amino acid (AA) dietary levels fed to broiler breeder pullets during the rearing phase from 5 to 24wk on BW, abdominal fat deposition and development. A total of 1,360 Cobb-500 slow-feathering (SF) pullets were placed in 16 floor pens (85/p ...
