Abstract: Improvements in the nutritive value of Australian wheats by the addition of xylanase enzymes were initially reported by Johnson and Campbell (1990). The present study evaluated the performance of broilers receiving wheat- or wheat/rye-based diets supplemented with three commercial xylanase preparations from d-old to d 42 (Enzyme R - Roviabio Xylanase TR L, Rhone-Poulenc Animal Nutrition; Enzyme A - A vizyme 1300, Finfeeds International Ltd, UK; Enzyme B - Biofeed Plus, Novo Nordisk, Denmark). The study examined the relationship between dietary non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) and the viscosity of intestinal contents by randomly allocating 4320 unsexed IM98 day-old broiler chicks to 9 diets with 4 replicates of 120 birds.
