Abstract

Background: The characterization of colonization and dynamic changes related to gut microorganisms might be vital, as it presents an opportunity to quantify the co-variation between stocking densities and gut microbiome of dynamic distribution. The objective of this study was to determine the ...

Abstract

Eight previously cecally cannulated Quarter Horse geldings were utilized in a crossover design with two 28-d periods with a 21-d washout period between to evaluate the influence of housing on the cecal environment and dry matter intake (DMI). Horses were adapted to diet and housing from day 1 to...

Abstract

Cows spend more time lying down when stalls are soft and dry, and bedding plays a key role in the comfort of the lying surface. The first objective of this study (experiment 1) was to compare cow preference for 2 types of alternative deep-bedding materials, switchgrass and switchgrass-lime, using...

Abstract

Totally, 315 42-day-old male Xueshan chickens were allocated into 3 caging densities, 14, 21 and 28 birds/m2. Each treatment was represented by 5 replicates. The body weight (BW), slaughter performance, meat quality, behavioral assessment, and the cecal microorganisms were detected at the market...

Abstract

The effects of stocking density of Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei from hatchery stages nauplius 5 (N5) through postlarval 5 (PL5) were evaluated in algal-bacterial biofloc systems. Triplicate stocking densities of 200 (D200), 300 (D300), and 400 (D400) shrimp larvae/L were used. No water ...

Abstract

Comparison of bacterial counts (BCs) among common bedding types used for dairy cows, including straw, is needed. There is concern that the microbial content of organic bedding is elevated and presents risks for dairy cow udder health and milk quality. The objectives of this study were to...

Abstract

Stocking density is a crucial factor in shellfish aquaculture that affects overall growth performance and health status. Present study analyzes the effects of stocking densities on growth, survival and hemolymph immune status of noble scallop Chlamys nobilis. The scallops with the same size were...

Abstract

The prevalence of Salmonella Enteritidis in commercial egg-laying flocks is a prominent public health concern because contaminated eggs cause human illness. Deposition of this pathogen inside eggs results from bacterial colonization of reproductive tissues in infected hens. Environmental conditions ...

Abstract

This study investigates air hygienic characteristics of housing systems without fixation for lactating sows, with a focus on microbiological air quality. For animal welfare considerations, free-farrowing systems have been developed to replace those with farrowing crates (FC) and are currently...
