Growth performance, haemo-biochemical parameters and meat quality characteristics of male Japanese quails fed a Lippia javanica-based diet
TLDR
It was concluded that inclusion of L. javanica in quail diets at 25 g/kg feed promoted similar growth performance, health status, and carcass and meat quality traits as the commercial grower diet containing antibiotics and has potential as an alternative to antibiotic growth promoters in Japanese quails. Expand
Growth performance, haematology, serum biochemistry and meat quality characteristics of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) fed canola meal-based diets
TLDR
It was concluded that CM can replace soybean in quail diets up to 12.5% without compromising growth performance, health and quality of meat and thus may require feed additives to enhance utilization. Expand
Evaluating Alternatives to Zinc-Bacitracin Antibiotic Growth Promoter in Broilers: Physiological and Meat Quality Responses
TLDR
It is shown that there is potential to replace zinc-bacitracin AGP in broiler diets with feed additives that do not promote antimicrobial resistance and thus deliver safe poultry products. Expand
Application of near infrared reflectance spectroscopy to the nutritional assessment of tree leaves as potential protein supplements for ruminants
TLDR
It was concluded that the NIRS models developed in this study can be used to accurately determine total N in browse leaves but not in vitro ruminal N degradability. Expand
A Nutritional Evaluation of Insect Meal as a Sustainable Protein Source for Jumbo Quails: Physiological and Meat Quality Responses
TLDR
It is concluded that BSFL meal could replace soybean products in Jumbo quail diets at 54 g/kg without compromising weight gain and meat quality. Expand
Valorization of Red Grape Pomace Waste Using Polyethylene Glycol and Fibrolytic Enzymes: Physiological and Meat Quality Responses in Broilers
TLDR
It was concluded that PEG treatment successfully ameliorated the anti-nutritional effects of condensed tannins, however, the cellulolytic enzyme treatment was ineffective against GP fiber. Expand
From Landfills to the Dinner Table: Red Grape Pomace Waste as a Nutraceutical for Broiler Chickens
TLDR
Inclusion of GP in broiler diets has the potential to reduce feed costs, thus making this waste-reduction and valorization strategy a sustainable alternative to current pomace disposal methods. Expand
A multi-strain probiotic administered via drinking water enhances feed conversion efficiency and meat quality traits in indigenous chickens
TLDR
It was concluded that probiotics can be used in place of prophylactic antibiotics in Potchefstroom koekoek cockerels. Expand
Exogenous carbohydrases do not improve the physiological and meat quality parameters of female Japanese quail fed canola-based diets
TLDR
It was concluded that inclusion of exogenous carbohydrases alone did not improve the utilization of a canola meal-based quail diet, however, there is a possibility that utilization of higher canola levels would be enhanced through multi-enzyme combinations. Expand
Nutrient Digestibility, Growth Performance, and Blood Indices of Boschveld Chickens Fed Seaweed-Containing Diets
TLDR
It was concluded that green seaweeds have the potential to be used as a feed ingredient for indigenous chickens after investigating the effect of graded levels of green seaweed (Ulva spp.) meal (SWM) on apparent nutrient digestibility, feed intake, growth performance, and blood parameters of Boschveld indigenous chickens.
