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 ...

Hi Horacio, there is a management dimension Infectious Coryza persists in production areas where hens are not culled on time. So it is important not to keep too old layers or to have birds of different age close by during production. Although the latter measure is difficult for infrastructural reasons, but it is professionally better if we have rearing operations far separated from layer egg seg ...

Great post Brett and Annsofie! One cannot but agree with your conclusions. Nutritional efficiency has become the rave in our industry. What is also interesting is that the old school approach to formulating to academic energy, protein or amino acid level or even those industry ideal ratios has become untenable under current price and supply turbulences. Thus success today is becoming more defined ...

Hi Guys, in the tropics, especially in areas around Ghana, Cote D'Ivoire, cameroun and Nigeria, this economic problem is normally associated with new castle disease and or to immunosuppression associated with subclinical mycotoxicosis. So a way out is to apply your NCDV or go for a more potent anti-toxin additive or reduce the level of byproduct feedstuffs in your formula. It also helps to ensure ...
