|Title:||Nutritive value of lupins for broilers||Contributor(s):||Hughes, R J (author); Kocher, A (author); Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||1998||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17486||Abstract:||The nutritive value of Australian lupins for broiler chickens was assessed in a series of classical apparent metabolisable energy (AME) studies each of 7-days duration. AME values (MJ/kg dry matter) for lupin kernels ranged from 12-15 for 'L. albus' cv Kiev mutant, 8-11 for 'L. angustifolius' cv Gungurru, and 6.5-10.5 for 'L. angustifolius' cv Danja. The AME for wholeseed of 'L. luteus' was 11.4 MJ/kg dry matter. Large differences due to season and locality were evident, which is common in cereals and legumes. Removal of the seed coat (de-hulling) increased AME by approximately 24 and 15% in white and sweet lupin, respectively. The seed coats of these species do not contain anti-nutritive factors but did have an energy dilution effect. Inclusion of wholeseed of Gungurru lupin at 200 g/kg in a wheat-based diet and at 300 g/kg in a maize-based diet did not have deleterious effects on growth, feed efficiency or digesta viscosity. Excreta moisture was significantly increased by inclusion of wholeseed of Gungurru lupin at 200 g/kg in wheat-based and maize-based diets.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||10th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1998||Conference Details:||10th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1998||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1998, p. 140-143||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/1998/APSS1998-hughes-pp140-143.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||10||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 168
