|Title:||A long-chain hydrocarbon marker for digestibility studies in poultry||Contributor(s):||Choct, Mingan (author) ; Hughes, R J (author)||Publication Date:||1996||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17510||Abstract:||The suitability of a long-chain hydrocarbon, hexatriacontane (C36H74), as a digestibility marker in poultry has been investigated. The concentrations of the acid in soluble ash and hydrocarbon markers in the ileal and excreta samples were closely correlated and the estimations of ileal and faecal dry matter digestibilities were similar. Dry matter digestibility values estimated by the marker technique were identical with those determined by the classical total collection method.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||8th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1996||Conference Details:||8th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 1996||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Australian Poultry Science Symposium 1996, p. 186-189||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||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||8||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 257
