The physical and chemical properties of some agricultural wastes included wheat straw, sugarcane bagasse, sugarcane peat; rice hulls as well as wood sheaving and sawdust as the control were examinedfor determinetheir potential as poultry bedding materials. Sugarcane bagasse and peat compared to other materials had greater initial moisture content (P<0.05) and there were no significant difference between other materials. The highest and lowest water holding capacity (WHC) was related to… Expand
Wood-based litter in poultry production: a review
Bedding material is an important requirement of floor-based poultry production systems to meet the health and welfare requirements. This substrate can be an organic material like wood or plant-basedExpand
Potential of pelleted wheat straw as an alternative bedding material for broilers
The study demonstrated the potential benefits to using pelleted wheat straw as a bedding material and assessed the impact of pelleting of wheat straw and other materials on broiler health, performance, and welfare. Expand
Characterisation of Wheat Straw Pellets Individually and in Combination with Cassava Starch or Calcium Carbonate under Various Compaction Conditions: Determination of Pellet Strength and Water Absorption Capacity
This study aimed to optimise the production conditions of wheat straw (WS) pellets and pellets with the additives of cassava starch (CS) or calcium carbonate (CC) based on the criteria of pelletExpand
Efficacy of pine leaves as an alternative bedding material for broiler chicks during summer season
Pine leaves have a potential to be used as an alternative source of litter material to economize poultry production in a sustainable way, so as to make poultry farming as a profitable entrepreneur. Expand
Influence of Fraction Particle Size of Pure Straw and Blends of Straw with Calcium Carbonate or Cassava Starch on Pelletising Process and Pellet
The addition of CC to the WS offers benefits in the form of pellet strength with a high water absorption capability, which results in the safer storage of uncrushed pellets and excellent moisture absorption of crushed pellets. Expand
Manufacturing and Utilization of Pelletized Livestock Manure Compost
As of March 2011, there were about 3.3 million cattle, 7 million pigs, and 140 million poultry in Republic of Korea, producing about 46.5 million tons of animal manure. About 87% of the totalExpand
Betel Nut Husks as An Alternative Litter Materials for Broiler Production
Betel nut husks can be used as an alternative litter material for broiler production without sacrificing the performance of broiler chickens, according to the results of this study. Expand
