Iván Camilo Ospina-Rojas, good article, with an enlightening focus. I take advantage of the material presented here, which somehow comes to consolidate some information that we publish, right here at ENGORMIX with the title; Digestible lysine levels obtained by two methods of formulation of diets for 22-to-42-day-old broilers, with a focus on differentiating diets with or without the use of ...

I might ask the person in charge of your region about the Arg in feed grade. Pls, feel free to contact me ( to keep you updated. When there is a low Arg/Lys ratio is recommended to avoid high Cl levels, which can increase arginase activity increasing the Arg degradation. As Arg cannot be synthesized by poultry (essential AA), I don't recommend using a low Arg/Lys ratio. The pe ...

Formulating least cost for better profit, is a good idea and its key in poultry business but there are laws that should be obeyed, using cheap ingredients with almost the same value with convetional ingredients in terms of nutrition can easily be done but at the end are you sure of the fibre content is not ecxceding the normal value, are all your ingredients not containing anti nutritional factors ...

A study published in 2003 comparing the nutrition and genetics of broilers from 1957 to a commercially available broiler strain estimated that within less than 50 years of development, broilers were reared to maturation in a third of the time (Havenstein et al., 2003). This shows clear evidence that improvements in genetics, nutrition and management of rearing meat producing chickens has continual ...

Large differences in the values of vitamin and trace element supplements (especially the latter) are not unexpected. 1. the NRC requirements are set with a view to ensuring minimum physiological needs. However, they are not justified precisely enough, which is probably not possible ( see: - Underwood and Suttle, 1999, and many others). 2. It is impossible to choose any single criterion, which conf ...

Dear KULAIT RFLINA ET FLA et al.! Someone once wrote that zinc is part of 200 enzymes, but apparently it seemed little and increased to 300. Who counted them? So now this figure will be rewritten from one review to another! Often write organic or inorganic zinc. This is not correct. A single element cannot be organic or non-organic. These properties are inherent only in complex substances. I do n ...

Dear Ken, thanks for the update. Yes we know that Virginiamycin saves nutrient cost from time. But it is hard to grasp why it has to be used as an incentive to dilute diets at a time when the world is working on the issue of antibiotic resistance, drug residues and consumer acceptance of poultry products. You actually used it in this study as a growth promoter rather than treat clinical issues, i ...
