Abstract: The energy cost in broiler diets is likely to continue to increase in the future. Data on heat increment of raw materials used in poultry feed formulations are lacking. An examination of methods to determine net energy is necessary to further develop an accurate net energy assay system. An indirect calorimetry system has been developed at UNE to gather information on respiratory quotient (RQ), heat production, AME and net energy in broilers.
