|Title:||Effects of Broiler Litter Reuse in a Commercial Australian Production System||Contributor(s):||Cressman, Michael D (author); Wells, B A (author); Zerby, H N (author); Walkden-Brown, Steve W (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/14250||Abstract:||There is pressure on the Australian broiler industry to reuse poultry litter for multiple batches of chickens. We investigated the effects of reused litter on bird performance, welfare, litter pH and moisture, and air ammonia concentrations on a commercial farm in Sydney. The litter inside six sheds was assigned to one of three treatments: 1) full cleanout followed by fresh pine shavings (CNT); 2) litter reuse following heaping and turning (HT); and 3) HT plus the addition of a commercial acidifying litter amendment (HT+A).||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||WPC 2012: XXIV World's Poultry Congress, Salvador, Brazil, 5th - 9th August, 2012||Source of Publication:||WPC 2012 Book of Abstracts, p. 139-142||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||0043-9339||Field of Research (FOR):||070203 Animal Management||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Series Name:||World's Poultry Science Journal||Series Number :||Supplement 1||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 285
