Based on the results of your study I would interpret the "benefits" in the title as improving the sustainable production. In addition to economical benefits, reduction in the excretion of nitrogen etc. would be considered as environmental benefits (reduction in environmental footprint of production). Furthermore, reducing the dietary protein would alleviate metabolic pressure on animal as can be c ...

INTRODUCTION Heritage chickens are important for breeders and industry to protect valuable genes and traits over the long term. However, 50% or more of the genetic diversity is absent in commercial pure lines (FAO, 2007; Muir et al., 2008). Therefore, preserving potentially valuable genes by conducting research with heritage breeds is important. Changes in live weight and proportional growth of b ...

In the current raw material cost scenario a concept of feed efficiency is an interesting strategy. It is not only the cost of the feed formulae that matters but also how it will perform. The industry has a broad portfolio of additives focused on increasing bioavailability of fats, some aminoacids and proteins. Bioemulsifiers and aminoacids adjuvants can serve as interesting devices in this strateg ...

David Nelson Thank you so much for your comment. That's where yield prediction models (breast, leg, wing) come to play in evaluating sample partial budget for either whole or cut-up chicken. These models can be also used to evaluate feed additives from an economical standpoint as you mentioned.

Mohammad Afrouziyeh Excellent point. We are seeing evidence of this now in the U.S. market. As prices for breast meat have fallen, we are seeing less focus or emphasis on breast meat yield when formulating diets or considering feed additives.

Great topic! In addition to what people have talked about the possible strategies, I would like to add using appropriate feed formulation models to offset the effect of ingredients cost on profitability. It means that in addition to ingredients cost (mainly energy and protein cost), product price (income) should be allowed to play a role in the feed formula. This can happen by using non-linear pro ...

Mike Stahl It's my pleasure. For sure, we will implement a successful feeding system at your farm. Looking forward to that! Take care!
