Copper (Cu) is a vital element involved in various physiological and biochemical processes, namely cellular metabolism and enzyme systems. Higher levels of copper than nutritional requirements (up to 250 mg/kg) are supplemented to poultry diets. However, if in excess, excreted Cu can contaminate the environment. High levels of copper sulphate (CuSO4) may damage other dietary nutrients through incr ...

Traditionally, Zn, Cu and Mn have been added to poultry diets in the form of inorganic salts, such as sulphate, to meet requirements and prevent deficiencies. The sulphate sources of trace minerals have low bioavailability, are highly water soluble and reactive in the feed and digestive tract (Ma et al., 2011). Hydroxychloride minerals (HyC) are a class of naturally occurring minerals with fully d ...

I. INTRODUCTIONAntibiotics as growth promoters (AGPs) have been extensively used at sub-therapeutic levels in poultry production to prevent diseases and promote growth performance. However, the persistent use of antibiotics can increase antibiotic-resistant bacteria and antibiotic residue accumulation in the animal products as well as potentially transferring resistant strains to humans through th ...

Necrotic enteritis (NE) is one of the most important diseases of the world broiler industry which costs over six billion dollars annually. There has been a concerted effort to control and minimise the effects of NE that have arisen since the EU ban of in-feed antibiotics in the poultry industry. Organic acids have been used as alternatives to in-feed antibiotics for maintaining good gut health of ...

Copper (Cu) is an essential component involved in a wide variety of biochemical processes. It must be supplemented in the trace mineral premix as the amount present in raw materials is inadequate to meet broiler requirements. At levels higher than nutritional requirements (up to 250 mg/kg), dietary Cu addition enhances growth performance by altering gut microbiota and enhancing nutrient absorption ...
