Great points! Matrix values of enzymes should be used cautiously as they might not always be accurate. Different factors such as birds’ age, dietary antinutrients, disease, and environmental conditions can affect the efficacy of enzymes in diets. Another concern in using these values is related to enzyme additivity issues. Nutritionists must be careful when reviewing the total matrix applied ...

dan hofer, When canola seed gets heated it increases the free fatty acids and that can lower energy value and yes be a risk to oxidation. The longer the storage time before being used up, the higher the oxidation. Which can be stopped by adding an antioxidant to the storage tank at fill up, once fat is oxidized it is irreversible. The big commercial crushers (Richardson, Viterra etc..) have a p ...

Zahed Abbasi, I would just comment that to keep a look out on feed intake also, if it drops it could be a sign that indeed the enzyme is working, but because energy to all othe nutrients ratio wasn't changed that the birds now have decreased daily intake of all nutrients and could therefor also show no gain in performance parameters, even in some circumstances show a loss! But that is not the enz ...

Very nice article, well done. Is it just me, but I don't see any Tables to view that are mentioned in the article, if there are some could someone direct myself on how to view them. I have special interest in the calcium and Phos ones. I have personally seen good results when using a Digestible Calcium: d. Phos model, with higher Phos levels in starter and reduced calcium and Phos levels after ...

Ram Singh, Glad to hear from you, also nice to know that you actually look at the ingredients used and inclusion in the diet. Have seen too many times that claims were made that certain products can bind certain toxins, problem is there not present in the feed. ex:Clay based products to bind alfatoxins, problem is alfatoxins are almost never detected in western Canada. Keep up the good work!

Ram Singh, What are your thoughts on Clay based, Yeast based Toxin Binders, which is better in Corn,wheat,soymeal, canola meal diets? What role does seaweed play, I have seen that being used more in combinations with yeasts?

Dr.Mike Czarick,The point of giving one hour of light in the middle of a long Dark period is for birds to fill up with feed again, so therefore would reduce Btu's/hour versus having a long Dark period with no light hours, theoretically. Dr. Werner,If I understand your comment correctly, you agree. What would be the max hours of light you'd go in the middle of a dark period. The 1 hour I'm thinking ...

Werner Bessei, What about when having 8 hours of darkness, have 1 hour of light for birds to eat in the middle of the dark period, same as is done within the Layer industry. Layers don't precieve the hour of light as a change of Day/Night as long as the light period does not go over 1 hour if I remember correctly. Has anyone tried that in Broilers?
