|Title:||Factors influencing the energy values of Australian cereal grains fed to broilers||Contributor(s):||Hughes, R J (author); Choct, Mingan (author) ; van Barneveld, R J (author)||Publication Date:||2001||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17466||Abstract:||The apparent metabolisable energy (AME) values for selected samples of wheat, barley, triticale, oats and sorghum grown in Australia were determined in energy balance experiments with young broilers of both sexes. Ileal digestible energy values were measured for most of these samples. Inherent characteristics of grains induced different responses in male and female chickens. Results indicated that the metabolic activity of gut microflora influenced the energy values in a sex-dependent manner. This has very important implications for the nutrition and husbandry of commercial broiler flocks. It may become economically worthwhile to feed and manage broilers in single sex flocks rather than jointly as is the current situation. In conclusion, sex-related differences may be important in the uptake and utilisation of energy and other nutrients, in responses to anti-nutritional factors (including non-starch polysaccharides; NSP), feed enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, and other feed additives, and in vaccinations against gut pathogens.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||13th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 2001||Conference Details:||13th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 2001||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium, p. 30-38||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/documents/2001/APSS2001-hughes-pp30-38.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||13||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 273
