Many factors can influence egg quality and appearance. These factors will vary depending upon the housing environment, genetics, drugs, feed ingredients, or chemicals used in agriculture. As egg production methods become more varied—for example, changing from cage to free...
SUMMARY Reducing the particle size (PS) of feed ingredients is necessary and requires substantial energy expenditure. A majority of research on ingredient PS has considered the effects of corn and wheat PS on poultry performance. However, there is limited research...
Metabolisable energy (ME) is the energy that comes from feed raw materials which is available for animal maintenance and growth. Non-starch polysaccharide (NSP) degrading enzymes release bound energy from the feed ingredients by breaking down fibre. This process also...
Mycotoxin-contaminated feed is a constant challenge for poultry producers, made worse if environmental conditions favor the rapid growth of mycotoxin-producing fungi in the field or during storage. And if multiple mycotoxins have contaminated the feed, it can create a...
