A total of 544 day-old sexed broiler chicks were used to investigate the effects of 2 ppm iodine-treated water on body weight and feed efficiency when the chicks were reared at 900, 720, 540, and 360-cm2 stocking densities. Chicks were fed a corn-soybean meal diet calculated to contain 3,212 kcal ME/kg and 21.58% CP. Iodine added to the drinking water at(More)
Egg production was reduced when young laying hens were kept in contact with metal cages while being continuously exposed to the following cw fields: a vhf field at a frequency of 260 MHz, with an incident power that decreased from 100 to 4mW during the experiment; a uhf field at a frequency of 915 MHz, with an incident power of 800 mW during the first 2.5(More)
Three trials were conducted to evaluate the effects of lasalocid, an anticoccidial feed additive (90.7 kg/ton); bacitracin, a growth-promoter (50 g/ton); and yeast culture residue (YCR) (1 kg/ton) on the performance of broiler chicks reared to 42 d of age on recycled litter. Recycled litter consisted of pine wood shavings containing droppings from chicks(More)
Five floor pens with 14 Leghorn-type breeder hens each, in their 4th month of production, and 2 males per pen were fed a practical-type breeder diet composed largely of soybean meal and milo supplemented with unidentified hatchability factor sources and adequate levels of vitamins and minerals. Five additional pens were fed an identical ration supplemented(More)
Four egg-type pullet feeding systems were compared for the production of egg-type pullets. The dietary regimens consisted of either a step-down protein, high energy feeding program; a step-down protein, low energy program; a step-up protein, high energy program; or a step-up protein, low energy program. At 150 days of age all pullets were housed 2 birds per(More)
One hundred and twenty Broad Breasted White turkey hens were taken through two production periods with a 10-week dark house treatment between cycles. Incidence of parthenogenesis was established on each virgin female prior to artificial insemination to determine fertility and hatch of fertile eggs. Following the dark house treatment, the hens were again(More)
The activities of adenosine deaminase (ADA) were measured in the blood plasma, erythrocytes, and lymphocytes of healthy reference persons and in patients affected with leukaemia. ADA is increased in patients with acute immature cell leukaemia, in patients with chronic lymphatic leukaemia it is comparatively low in lymphocytes. In chronic myeloic leukaemia(More)
Adenosine deaminase (ADA) has been assayed in plasma, erythrocytes, and lymphocytes from 29 patients with haematological and autoimmune diseases. ADA activity was uniformly low in erythrocytes and lymphocytes from patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma (p less than 0.001). High levels of ADA activity was found in plasma, erythrocytes, and(More)
