Stocking density effects on male broilers grown to 1.8 kilograms of body weight.
This study examined the effects of stocking density on live performance, physiological stress level indicators, and processing yields of male broilers grown to 1.8 kg. A total of 3,120 Ross x RossExpand

Stocking density effects on growth performance and processing yields of heavy broilers.
This study examined responses of male broilers during a 49-d production cycle to 4 placement densities in 2 trials. Trials were pooled because no treatment x trial interaction occurred. In eachExpand

Growth performance, carcass characteristics, meat quality, and tissue histology of growing pigs fed crude glycerin-supplemented diets.
The effects of dietary crude glycerin on growth performance, carcass characteristics, meat quality indices, and tissue histology in growing pigs were determined in a 138-d feeding trial. CrudeExpand

Digestible and metabolizable energy of crude glycerol for growing pigs.
The apparent DE and ME values of crude glycerol for growing pigs were determined in 5 experiments using crude glycerol (86.95% glycerol) from a biodiesel production facility, which used soybean oilExpand

The Effects of Photoperiod Length, Light Intensity, and Feed Energy on Growth Responses and Meat Yield of Broilers
Abstract A study was conducted to assess the effects of photoperiod length (constant 23L:1D vs. a photoperiod program going from decreasing to increasing quantity of light), light intensity (brightExpand

Digestible and metabolizable energy content of crude glycerin originating from different sources in nursery pigs.
The energy value of crude glycerin from different biodiesel production facilities was determined in nursery pigs (initial BW of 10.4 kg) to predict apparent DE and ME based on the composition ofExpand

Nitrogen-corrected apparent metabolizable energy value of crude glycerol for laying hens.
An experiment was conducted with laying hens to determine the AME(n) value of crude glycerol, a coproduct of biodiesel production. Crude glycerol (87% glycerol, 9% water, 0.03% methanol, 1.26% Na,Expand

Apparent metabolizable energy of glycerin for broiler chickens.
Three energy balance experiments were conducted to determine AMEn of glycerin using broiler chickens of diverse ages. In experiment 1, two dietary treatments were fed from 4 to 11 d of age. DietaryExpand

Responses of broilers to dietary zinc concentrations and sources in relation to environmental implications
1. Since high concentrations of zinc are associated with reduced crop yields, environmental concerns are emerging regarding zinc accumulation in areas where poultry production is prevalent. ThisExpand

Dietary Threonine Needs for Growth and Immunity of Broilers Raised Under Different Litter Conditions
Abstract Two studies were conducted simultaneously and evaluated the Thr needs of male Ross × Ross 708 broilers. Broilers in the 2 studies were reared under 2 litter conditions: new (NL) vs. usedExpand
