INTRODUCTIONPoultry production is one of the largest sources of animal protein supply for human consumption in the world. For many countries, like Australia, chicken-meat is the dominant animal protein, therefore production must continue to expand to supply increasing demand. In Australia, for instance, per capita consumption of chicken-meat is predicted to increase by 7.9% over the next 5 years [ ...

Feed represents the primary cost of broiler production, thus the formulation of cost-effective diets that meet broiler nutritional requirements is critical. To ensure this objective is met, nutrient specifications of feed ingredients must be accurately determined. However, Australian broiler nutritionists have expressed concern, as many nutrient specification databases contain dated information or ...

INTRODUCTIONVariability in the nutritional value of feed ingredients for poultry (and indeed other livestock species) has been widely reported over several decades and has been the impetus behind a sustained body of research work. For example, Sibbald and Slinger (1962), Mollah et al. (1983), and Leeson et al. (1993) reported variation in the apparent metabolizable energy (AME) content of corn (3, ...

I. INTRODUCTIONThe withdrawal of antibiotics has caused an increased prevalence of necrotic enteritis (NE) in broiler chickens, making it the most common disease in the poultry-industry globally. Direct fed microbials (DFMs) have been shown to have great potential as alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs). Bacillus amyloliquefaciens produces several extracellular enzymes including cell ...

Supplementing poultry diets with xylanase partially depolymerizes the xylans present in the dietary cereals, reducing the number of sugars in the molecular chains. The resulting oligosaccharides can be selectively fermented by beneficial intestinal bacteria, resulting in improved nutrient utilization (De Maesschalck et al., 2015). The study aim was to investigate the production of xylo-oligosaccha ...

Dietary energy available to animals is key to formulating feed as it is required for all aspects of animal life. In poultry, apparent (AME) and true (TME) metabolisable energy (ME) values have been developed for feed formulation with or without correction for nitrogen balance. Over the past 50 years, the accuracy of ME systems has been an ongoing debate and the data produced from different bioassa ...

1. Introduction Xylans, also known as arabinoxylans (AX) and pentosans, are the most abundant hemicelluloses in the cell walls of monocotyledonous plants, such as cereals. The presence of these polysaccharides has a direct negative impact on energy availability of monogastric diets (Choct and Annison, 1990), largely due to the direct effect of soluble AX on increasing digesta viscosity. These nega ...

Chicken meat production is more sustainable and has lower environmental impact than porcine and bovine meat production. Chicken production uses less feed consumed for each kilogram of meat produced and uses less land and water for both farming and feed production (Flachowsky et al., 2017). Moreover, the broiler production industry has, for many years, continuously improved animal performance, refl ...
