Growing broilers on wire flooring provides an excellent experimental model for exposing susceptibility to lameness attributable to bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO). Two independent experiments (E1, E2) were designed to compare the susceptibilities of broilers from 4 commercial crosses (W, X, Y, and Z). The standard crosses (W and Y) grow(More)
Two experiments (E1, E2) were conducted to compare the influence of sires (sire A on dam C vs. sire B on dam C) and straight-run versus sex-separate rearing on the incidence of bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) in broilers. Fertile eggs from commercial breeder flocks were incubated and hatched at the University of Arkansas Poultry Research(More)
Bacteria entering the bloodstream via translocation from the gastrointestinal tract spread hematogenously and can trigger bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) by infecting osteochondrotic microfractures in the epiphyseal-physeal cartilage of the proximal femora and tibiae. In experiment 1, broilers were fed control feed or the same feed(More)
Online Social Networks (e.g., Twitter, Facebook) have dramatically grown in usage and popularity in recent years. In addition to keeping track of friends and acquaintances, these networks provide powerful means of exchanging and sharing information on many different topics of interest (e.g., sports, religion, politics, health concerns, etc.). Moreover, the(More)
Lameness is one of the main metabolic diseases related to fast growth in broilers. It is a significant problem in the poultry industry resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue annually. In commercial broilers, the most common cause of lameness is bacterial chondrone­ crosis with osteomyelitis (BCO). Dr. Wideman, from the Department of(More)
