|Title:||Low-ME wheat or low-ME chickens? - Highly variable responses by birds on the same low-ME wheat diet||Contributor(s):||Hughes, R J (author); Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||1997||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17485||Abstract:||The "low-ME" wheat phenomenon is not entirely dependent on the physico-chemical nature of wheat. It is a multi-faceted problem closely linked with the individuality of the digestive physiology of broiler chickens given diets containing high levels of arabinoxylans from wheat. Commercial glycanases offer an immediate solution to the problem. However, more effort should be put into obtaining a clearer understanding of the "low-ME" problem, particularly as to why some birds in the same flock are not affected to anywhere near the same extent as others in terms of poor nutrient digestibility and excessive output of wet, sticky excreta.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||9th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1997||Conference Details:||9th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1997||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1997, p. 138-141||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/1997/APSS1997-hughes-pp138-141.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||9||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 135
