Phosphorus digestibility of corn and soybean meal (SBM) in broilers : in search of a consistent and reliable model to quantify individual ingredient contribution
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
Two experiments were conducted to determine true digestibility of Phosphorus (P) in feed ingredients commonly in commercial broiler diets. A second objective was to determine if the true digestible P values of corn and ...
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 ...
Effects of dietary melamine and cyanuric acid in young broilers and turkey poults
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
Six studies were conducted to determine the individual and combined toxicity of melamine and cyanuric acid (up to 3.0%) in young broilers and turkey poults. Melamine alone caused reduced growth, increased kidney weights, ...
Effects of dietary melamine and cyanuric acid in young Pekin ducks and weanling pigs
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
In 2007, melamine (MEL) and cyanuric acid (CYA) were added to feed ingredients in an attempt to artificially increase their crude protein and thus their momentary value. However, once ingested MEL and CYA can form insoluble ...
Effects of aflatoxin B₁ (AFB₁) on hepatic gene expression in pigs and turkeys
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of curcumin (CMN), an antioxidant supplied by turmeric (Curcuma longa) powder to ameliorate the adverse effects of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) on performance of pigs ...
