|Title:||The effect of feed particle size, milling method, and thermal treatment, on interior and exterior egg quality in laying hens||Contributor(s):||Hafeez, A (author); Mader, A (author); Ruhnke, Isabelle (author) ; Rohe, I (author); Goodarzi Boroojeni, F (author); Schulze, E (author); Manner, K (author); Zentek, J (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17535||Abstract:||Quality egg production is the ultimate goal of layer farming. The grinding of grains to a more uniform particle size may improve the performance of mature birds (Amerah et al., 2007). Two methods, including hammer mill and roller mill, are commonly used to reduce particle size of grains (Amerah et al., 2007). Thermal treatment of feed is commonly used for feed sanitation, which may improve bird's performance (Kilburn and Edwards, 2001). The effect of the mentioned treatments on performance of poultry has widely been studied, however the knowledge regarding their impact on egg quality is limited. Therefore, the present study was designed to investigate the effects of feed grinding technique (roller (R) vs. hammer mill (H)), form of compaction (mash (M) or expandate (E)), and grinding intensity (coarse (C) vs. fine (F) particle size) on interior and exterior egg quality in layers.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||18th Congress of the European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ESVCN), Utrect, Netherlands, 11th - 13th September, 2014||Conference Details:||18th Congress of the European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ESVCN), Utrect, Netherlands, 11th - 13th September, 2014||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 18th Congress of the European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition||Publisher:||European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition||Place of Publication:||online||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830309 Poultry||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 346
