The influence of drinking water acidification in broilers under tropical conditions

Monday, November 6, 2023

The potential for organic acids to preserve feed and water quality lies in their ability to protect against microbial and fungal contamination and/or degradation. The free hydrogen proton of a dissociated organic acid lowers pH, thereby creating unfavourable conditions for bacterial pathogens.

The Effect of Organic Trace Mineral Supplementation in the Form of Proteinates on Performance and Sustainability Parameters in Laying Hens: A Meta-Analysis

Wednesday, October 25, 2023

The effect of supplementing organic trace minerals (OTM), in the form of mineral pro-teinates (Bioplex® Cu, Fe, Mn, and Zn, Alltech Inc., Nicholasville, KY, USA), in the diets of laying hens was examined using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (CMA) statistical software.

Phytobiotics: Mycotoxins in Feed - A Danger for Calcium and Phosphorus Metabolism

Thursday, October 5, 2023

Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by certain types of fungi, primarily molds, that can contaminate food and feed crops. These toxins are naturally occurring and can pose significant health risks to humans and animals if consumed in sufficient quantities.

Solid & Science-based technology to optimize feed costs

Thursday, August 24, 2023

One innovative technology based on the micro-encapsulation of seaweeds and plants extracts, which stimulate digestive functions, can help secure performance, and reduce feed costs, according to recent research program.

Bioavailability of encapsulated pigment from self-emulsifiable microemulsion in egg yolk pigmentation trial

Monday, July 3, 2023

Yolk color is one of the important factors for the customer's acceptance of poultry eggs. Since birds are unable to synthesize carotenoids biologically, carotenoid pigments are widely used to supplement layer feed for yolk color enhancement. Marigolds and paprika oleoresins are usually the sources of carotenoids, a ...

Probiotics as a Friendly Antibiotic Alternative: Assessment of Their Effects on the Health and Productive Performance of Poultry

Thursday, June 8, 2023

Antibiotics have been used to maintain the overall health of poultry by increasing production efficiency, promoting growth, and improving intestinal function for more than 50 years. However, they have a number of side effects, such as antibiotic resistance, gut dysbiosis, destruction of beneficial bacteria, and the pot ...

An in vitro model for caecal proteolytic fermentation potential of ingredients in broilers

Thursday, June 8, 2023

Fermentation of protein in the caeca of chickens may lead to the production of potentially detrimental metabolites, which can reduce gut health. A poor precaecal digestion is expected to increase protein fermentation (PF), as more proteins are likely to enter the caeca.
