|Title:||Nutritive value of winter wheat for broiler chickens||Contributor(s):||Hughes, R J (author); Acone, L (author); Zviedrans, P (author); Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||2000||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17468||Abstract:||The nutritive value of Australian winter wheat varieties for broiler chickens was assessed in a series of conventional energy balance studies each of 7-days duration. Across all samples, the mean and standard deviation for apparent metabolisable energy (AME, MJ/kg dry matter) were 14.29±0.36 (n=25) and ranged from 13.68 to 15.02. For individual varieties, means and standard deviations were 14.80±0.03 for Declic (n=2), 14.31±0.33 for Lawson (n=16), 13.97±0.34 for More (n=4) and 14.20±0.09 for Paterson (n=3). In conclusion, winter wheats were consistently high in AME but, nevertheless, were responsive to endo-1,4-xylanase added to the diet. Uplift in AME of wheat due to enzyme supplementation averaged 0.7 MJ/kg (4.9%) and ranged from 0.22 MJ/kg (l.5%) to l.13 MJ/kg (8.2%).||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||12th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 2000||Conference Details:||12th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 2000||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 2000, p. 137-140||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/2000/APSS2000-hughes-pp137-140.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||12||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 507
