Available Phosphorus (aP) is the portion of dietary total P that meets the animal's P requirements. This definition isn't tied to a specific P fraction (phytate or nonphytate P). Interestingly, some phytate P (pP) is available to animals, while some nonphytate P (npP) is not, and the availability of both can vary greatly between different feeds It's a good time to remember this... Available P X Nonphytate P What do you think about...

Cupric citrate works well in broilers: DOI: 10.1093/ps/77.3.445. About 60 mg CU as citrate replaced over twice as much as sulfate. I don't know about other organic acids. We used citrate because it was the least expensive at the time. The real environmental question should be how much have soil Cu levels been depleted by intensive cropping? Perhaps the extra Cu in the manure would be helpful at times. A quick answer could be found by checking local ruminant feeds for CU supplements. Appropriate...

I recall the 'good old days' when we were permitted to use CuSO4 as a 'growth promoter' in pigs. That was before EU legislation prohibited its use because of the potential for adverse environmental effects from the resultant effluent. In my lab, we showed that Cu modulates the antimicrobial effects of organic acids. Beal, J. D., Niven, S. J., Campbell, A. and Brooks, P. H. 2003. The effect of copper on the death rate of Salmonella typhimurium DT 104:30 in food substrates acidified...

Vaccination against avian influenza requires the assessment of multiple technical, legislative, and trade aspects related to its epidemiology and the country’s veterinary infrastructure, commerce policies, and interests. According to the World Organization of Animal Health (WOAH), vaccination against AI should not preclude a country from eligibility for trade as long as it can prove freedom from natural infection. Importing countries may have policies above the general guidelines...

I. INTRODUCTION The ban on the use of AGPs together with good antibiotic stewardship practices by intensive livestock industries resulting in a decline of antimicrobial resistance globally (Salim et al., 2018). Probiotics have been widely studied partially as a replacement of AGPs. Some probiotics are able to improve production performance whilst improving gut health and decreasing the likelihood of mortality due to infection. This study investigated the effects of various novel...

The responses to copper, including gizzard erosion, will depend on the amount of methionine present. The strong Cu versus Methionine antagonism has been known for a long time. Our old studies showed that if a kg of CuSO4 was added as a growth promoter, to get a really good response the same amount of extra supplemental methionine was needed. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0032579119563398?via%3Dihub...

Ioannis Mavromichalis, a Ph.D. consultant in the animal nutrition industry, mentioned in Feed Strategy, "In my experience, feed prices always fluctuate. When they rise, the most effective way to maintain profitability is by enhancing the feed conversion ratio, or FCR." The Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) is crucial in livestock farming as it significantly affects the cost per kilogram of meat. Feed costs can account for 40% to 70% of total production expenses, varying by country and type...

Introduction The genus Salmonella is considered a leading cause of foodborne illnesses around the world (WHO, 2017). These bacteria are among the most significant agents of food and water poisoning in the United States and Europe (Bäumler et al., 2000; Callejón et al., 2015; Varma et al., 2005). Globally, it is estimated that 93.8 million cases of Salmonella-related gastroenteritis occur annually, resulting in 155,000 deaths (Majowicz et al., 2010). In Ecuador, typhoid,...

Introduction Antimicrobial resistance (AR) is a worldwide concern. It is expected that deaths linked to AR could rise from 700,000 to 10 million deaths per year by 2050[1]. On the other hand, In developed countries, an estimated 23,000 (United States) to 25,000 (Europe) deaths are attributable to resistant pathogens each year [2]. In terms of economic loses, AR could cause a global loss of production as high as 100 trillion dollars which represents a huge impact on the economy...
