Effect of Limestone Particle Size and Potassium Supplementation on Growth Performance, Blood Physiology, and Breast Muscle Myopathy of Male Broiler Chickens


By: D. Joardar*, K. Livingston*, F. Edens*, B. Nusairat*, R. Qudsieh*, M. Livingston*, J. Brake*

author keywords: limestone particle size; potassium; blood physiology; woody breast; white striping; broiler; performance
TL;DR: This study demonstrated that using 0.2% of K as potassium carbonate did not negatively affect FCR even though FI and BWG were reduced, and fine limestone has the potential to reduce WB in breast muscle tissues; however, further research is needed to confirm these outcomes.

Evaluation of litter type and dietary coarse ground corn inclusion on broiler live performance, gastrointestinal tract development, and litter characteristics

POULTRY SCIENCE, 94(3), 362–370.

By: Y. Xu n, C. Stark n, P. Ferket n, C. Williams n, B. Nusairat n & J. Brake n

author keywords: broilers; corn particle size; live performance; gizzard; litter condition
MeSH headings : Animal Feed / analysis; Animal Nutritional Physiological Phenomena; Animals; Chickens / growth & development; Chickens / physiology; Diet / veterinary; Digestion; Female; Floors and Floorcoverings / methods; Floors and Floorcoverings / standards; Gizzard, Avian / physiology; Housing, Animal / standards; Male; Proventriculus / physiology; Random Allocation; Zea mays / chemistry
TL;DR: In conclusion, 50% CC inclusion initially produced negative effects on live performance that became positive as BW increased, and the effects of CC became evident at an earlier age for males. (via Semantic Scholar)
