    The objective of this study was to compare the emission of NH3 from 3 types of broiler litters. Three litter materials (refused tea, RT; sawdust, SDT; and paddy husk, PH) were randomly assigned into 18 cages. Twenty-day-old broiler chicks (n = 216) were randomly allocated into cages and were fed...

    This article provides information on the problems posed by wet litter in the poultry industry. This problem has important implications for broiler health and welfare. It has been linked with footpad, breast and hock lesions, however, there is little information on its occurrence and risk...

  • Botulism is 'a concern to broiler growers'.  // Poultry World;May2012, Vol. 166 Issue 5, p14 

    The article reports on the need for broiler producers in Great Britain to ensure that their litter is free of bird carcasses to prevent the spread of botulism, caused by a toxin produced by bacteria, to other livestock keepers.

    Chopped switchgrass (SG) and chopped bermudagrass (BG) were evaluated as alternatives to pine shavings (PS) for broiler litter over 3 flocks. Twenty-four pens were filled with the 3 litter types. Live performance parameters included mortality, BW, BW gain, feed consumption, and feed conversion....

    To investigate the effects of a synthetic soybean isoflavone (ISF) on growth performance, meat quality, and antioxidation in male broilers, 1,500 birds that were 42 d old were allotted to 5 treatments with 6 replicates per treatment (50 birds per replicate). Birds were fed diets supplemented...

    The pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS, ascites) includes the development of systemic arterial hypoxemia (reduction in the saturation of hemoglobin with O2, HbO2), which can be mimicked in clinically healthy broilers by i.v. injections of microparticles (MP). In experiment 1,...

    The preslaughter handling and transport of broilers are stressful operations that might affect welfare and meat quality and could increase numbers of deaths before slaughter. However, the influence of thermal factors during transportation and lairage at slaughterhouses is complex in subtropical...

    A multilevel analysis was performed to identify and quantify risk factors associated with mortality and bruises occurring between catching and slaughter of broiler flocks. The effect of each factor in the final model was expressed as an odds ratio (OR). Data included 1,907 Dutch and German...

  • Stocking density effects on broiler welfare: Identifying sensitive ranges for different indicators. Buijs, S.; Keeling, L.; Rettenbacher, S.; Van Poucke, E.; Tuyttens, F. A. M. // Poultry Science;Aug2009, Vol. 88 Issue 8, p1536 

    Although stocking density is perceived as a topic of major importance, no consensus has been reached on what density would allow for good welfare. In the present study, the welfare of 4 replicates of birds stocked at 8, 19, 29, 40, 45, 51, 61, and 72 broilers per pen (or 6, 15, 23, 33, 35, 41,...
