Leading Research: tagged feed
This study aims to determine the required energy intake of layer hen strain in terms of dietary energy concentration, feed intake, egg output, body weight and body fat content, in order to design diets that are nutrition and cost effective.
This publication contains data on the net energy values of some cereal grains and vegetable protein sources that are commonly used in the Australian poultry broiler and layer industries.
This proposes that the Australian egg and poultry industry to incorporate canola and cottonseed meal in poultry diets.Canola and cottonseed meal is proven to be both economical and high in protein.
