|Title:||Anatomy and digestive physiology of the neonatal ostrich ( 'Struthio camelus') in relation to nutritional requirements||Contributor(s):||Iji, Paul (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4141||Abstract:||The demand for ostrich meat and o:her products is increasing. The primary problem facing the industry is a lack of information on the nutrient requirements of these birds, particularly neonatal birds. This may be partly responsible for the high mortality of chicks and the lack of expansion of the industry. Knowledge of the development of the ostrichich's anatomy and digestive function is limited. Th is review collates current knowledge on these aspect s and Suggests a way forward for the development of ostrich nutrition.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition, University of New England, Armidale, NSW, Australia, July 10 - July 13 2005||Source of Publication:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition in Australia 15, p. 165-170||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, NSW, Australia||ISSN:||0819-4823||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||830305 Game Livestock (e.g. Kangaroos, Wallabies, Camels, Buffaloes, Possums)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/8475886?selectedversion=NBD42268531||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 220|
