Abstract

Calcium and phosphorus are essential minerals for some important biochemical functions and bone integrity. Deficiency in rations or poor absorption of these minerals is an important problem in poultry nutrition, especially high producing laying hens and broilers, leading to economic losses such as...

Abstract

In commercial layer breeding, extensive gene pools are tested and selected for market requirements which must be anticipated at least five years ahead. Animal welfare and cage-free housing dominate future needs of the market. Stronger shells for longer production cycles without moulting have to be...

Abstract

Keel fractures represent a major productivity and welfare issue for the laying hen industry with greater than 50% of birds in recent surveys across various commercial operations and nations exhibiting some form of damage by end of lay. While the causes are likely multifactorial and influenced by...
