1. IntroductionUnder normal circumstances, excessive free radicals are scavenged by body enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants, but oxidative stress can occur when the amount of oxidant production surpasses the capacity of the body’s antioxidant system [1,2]. Different aspects of avian productive and reproductive performances, such as egg production rate and egg quality traits, as well as ...

Background & AimsButyrate has been shown to potently regulate energy expenditure and lipid metabolism in animals, yet the underlying mechanisms remain to be fully understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the molecular mechanisms of butyrate (in the form of butyrate glycerides, BG)-induced lipid metabolism at the level of gene expression in the jejunum and liver of broilers.Methodol ...

IntroductionButyrate plays an important role in gastrointestinal health in broilers. Although very efficacious and possible to substitute for dietary antibiotics, pure butyrate has obvious limitations of smell and handling and is virtually absorbed in the upper digestive tract. Butyrate glycerides have no such limitations and their butyrate can be released by lipase in the small intestine, thus pr ...

In antibiotic-free broiler production systems, nutritionists can support the gut ecosystem with the judicious use of highly digestible diets for the young bird. Varying degrees of antibioticfree production (ABF) of chicken are now imposed by government agencies or major retailers or are being voluntarily undertaken by integrated broiler companies. It seems highly unlikely that broilers c ...

Use of dietary plasma in pre-starters for broilers may improve growth and health. Early nutrition of the broiler chicken is becoming more important as more knowledge is gained about the positive correlation between early growth rate and market weight and also the impact early growth and development have on the uniformity of carcass weight and composition. All of these factors become even ...

INTRODUCTION Breeder nutrition is most often evaluated in terms of egg numbers and hatchability, with relatively scant regard to broiler performance. Within an integrated broiler operation, it is of course broiler growth characteristics that have the greatest impact on economics of poultry meat production, yet there is often disconnect between breeder and broiler nutrition. To some extent, this si ...
