Evaluation of the efficacy of high levels of microbial phytase in broilers
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of high levels of microbial phytase in broiler diets. In experiment one (EXP 1), phytase was included in the diets at 0, 250, 500, 10,000, and 20,000 PU/kg diet. ...
Evaluation of modified montmorillonites in poultry diets
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
The present work was conducted to determine if modification of MONTs with Cu and Zn would enhance the protection of broiler chicks against the adverse effects of AF, and to determine if the modified MONTs would be bioavailable ...
Effects of continous administration of low-dose of Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide in chicks and poults fed non toxic doses of aflatoxin B1 and T-2 toxin
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
Six studies (three with broilers and three with turkeys) were conducted to determine if E. coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS) would enhance the effects of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) and the T-2 toxin (T-2) in chicks and poults fed ...
Approaches for alleviating toxic effects of aflatoxin in lactating dairy cows and weanling pigs
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Aflatoxin (AF) is a mycotoxin found in feed ingredients used in livestock diets including dairy cattle and pigs. Aflatoxin causes reduced performance, liver damage, increased prevalence of infectious disease, and secretion ...
Digestible lysine and threonine requirements of male turkeys and their effects on performance of male turkeys fed practical diets to market age
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Seven experiments were conducted to determine the minimum requirements of digestible lysine (dLys) and digestible threonine (dThr) from 1 to 21 weeks of age for male turkeys. Requirement values were similar to NRC (1994) ...
