2015 journal article

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.

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)

2015 journal article

Effects of dietary coarsely ground corn and litter type on broiler live performance, litter characteristics, gastrointestinal tract development, apparent ileal digestibility of energy and nitrogen, and intestinal morphology

POULTRY SCIENCE, 94(3), 353–361.

author keywords: broilers; corn particle size; live performance; gizzard; apparent ileal digestibility
MeSH headings : Animal Feed / analysis; Animal Nutritional Physiological Phenomena; Animals; Chickens / anatomy & histology; Chickens / growth & development; Chickens / physiology; Diet / veterinary; Digestion; Energy Metabolism; Floors and Floorcoverings / methods; Gastrointestinal Tract / anatomy & histology; Gastrointestinal Tract / growth & development; Gastrointestinal Tract / physiology; Housing, Animal; Ileum / physiology; Male; Nitrogen / metabolism; Random Allocation; Zea mays / chemistry
TL;DR: This study showed that birds fed pelleted and screened diets containing 50% CC exhibited improved BW, FCR, and AID of energy and N, in conjunction with altered morphology of the GIT and intestinal mucosa. (via Semantic Scholar)

2015 journal article

Inferring causal relationships between reproductive and metabolic health disorders and production traits in first-lactation US Holsteins using recursive models

JOURNAL OF DAIRY SCIENCE, 98(4), 2713–2726.

author keywords: causal effect; health; persistency; structural equation model
MeSH headings : Animals; Bayes Theorem; Cattle; Cattle Diseases / genetics; Female; Lactation / genetics; Metabolic Diseases / genetics; Metabolic Diseases / veterinary; Models, Biological; Pregnancy; Reproduction / genetics; Retrospective Studies
TL;DR: It is concluded that a health disorder occurring in early lactation has a moderate causal effect on the reproductive or metabolic health disorders occurring in later lactation, and the results obtained suggest that reproductive and metabolic health disorder and culling due to metabolic and reproductive diseases have strong causal relationships.

2015 journal article

Microbiological contamination of shell eggs produced in conventional and free-range housing systems

FOOD CONTROL, 47, 161–165.

author keywords: Salmonella; Eggs; Egg production; Free-range hens; Campylobacter
TL;DR: It is demonstrated that FR eggs, where hens have more contact with eggs after oviposition, have greater microbiological contamination on the egg shell surface than eggs produced in the BC cage systems. (via Semantic Scholar)
