Growth Performance, Carcass Traits and Meat Quality of Slower-growing and Fast-growing Chickens Raised with and without Outdoor Access
TLDR
Compared with fast-growing, slower-growing chickens were significantly lighter, had a lower breast and thigh muscle yield and a higher abdominal fat content, but they were characterized by higher survival rates at 65 days, a higher protein content and a lower fat content of breast meat. Expand
The effect of different dietary levels of rapeseed meal on growth performance, carcass traits, and meat quality in turkeys.
TLDR
The results suggest that the quality of turkey meat could be affected by impaired triiodothyronine secretion caused by dietary RSM. Expand
Gastrointestinal tract and metabolic response of broilers to diets with the Macleaya cordata alkaloid extract.
TLDR
The results of many medical and pharmacological experiments indicate that small doses of sanguinarine extracts exert a wide spectrum of biological activity, including antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and adrenolytic, i.e. blocking the release or action of adrenaline at nerve endings. Expand
The effect of selenium source on performance, carcass traits, oxidative status of the organism, and meat quality of turkeys
TLDR
It is verified that supplementation of the diet for turkeys with selenium, especially in an organic source of Se, improves the antioxidative status of the organism and the stability of the meat. Expand
Effects of dietary soyabean, rapeseed and linseed oils on performance, slaughter yield and fatty acid profile of breast meat in turkeys
The objective of this study was to determine the physiological effect of supplementing turkey diets with different vegetable oils, i.e. soyabean (S) oil, rapeseed (R) oil and linseed (L) oil, whichExpand
Effect of organic and inorganic forms of selenium in diets on turkey semen quality.
TLDR
Monitoring the DNA fragmentation of spermatozoa at the end of the reproductive season could be a useful tool for monitoring turkey semen quality and biochemical parameters of semen and spermutozoa motility parameters appear to be useful for evaluating the effect of age on semen quality. Expand
Effects of dietary probiotic (Pediococcus acidilactici) supplementation on performance, nutrient digestibility, egg traits, egg yolk cholesterol, and fatty acid profile in laying hens.
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of Pediococcus acidilactici MA 18/5M at 100 mg.kg(-1) has potential commercial applications for improvements in hen performance and eggshell quality during the early laying period. Expand
Selected parameters of gastrointestinal tract metabolism of turkeys fed diets with flavomycin and different inulin content
For 16 weeks, turkeys were fed the following feed mixtures: control diet without antibiotic (or inulin), diet with flavomycin (8 mg/kg) and diets with different level of inulin: low (0.1% for 16Expand
INDICES OF RESPONSE OF YOUNG TURKEYS TO DIETS CONTAINING MANNAN- OLIGOSACCHARIDE OR INULIN
TLDR
For 8 weeks, the birds were fed ad libitum with the mash feed mixtures containing 0.1% or 0.4% of two types of low-digestible carbohydrates: mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS) and long-chain polymer of fructose - inulin to study productivity and faecal parameters of birds. Expand
EFFICACY OF ESCHERICHIA COLI-DERIVED PHYTASE ON PERFORMANCE, BONE MINERALIZATION AND NUTRIENT DIGESTIBILITY IN MEAT-TYPE TURKEYS
2. The turkeys were reared until 112 days (16 weeks) of age, and they were fed diets based on corn, soybean meal and wheat. Group I (positive control - PC) received a diet with a standard phosphorusExpand
