The approach of supplementing poultry feed with a combination of xylanase and direct-fed-microbials (DFMs), along with other management practices, to improve gut health is gaining increased attention as feed-additive alternatives to replace growth promoting antibiotics (AGP). The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of various combinations of different endo-xylanases and multi-str ...

Daily checks on litter under drinker lines is very important. Maintaining correct drinker li ...

As target bird sizes continue to increase so does the difficulty in keeping the birds cool during hot weather. Whereas 400 to 500 ft/min has traditionally worked well for smaller broilers, today’s larger 8 lb+ birds can require substantially higher air speeds to keep them growing during the summer months. Growers are often increasing their tunnel fan capacity 50% or more in th ...

One prime factor that determines the wholesomeness of water is its microbial quality. Therefore, it should be of primary concern for production personnel and poultry producers to know the microbial quality of water supplies provided to their birds and co ...

andrew page Hi Andrew, sorry to hijack this thread but I am new to the site. After reading Susan's article I went to this comment section and noted your comments around hydrogen peroxide and residual levels in broiler drinking water supply. Do you really dose the drinking water and maintain 50ppm HP at the drinkers? What product are you using to supply H2O2? I use Oxykil (20% H2O2) biocide to tr ...
