|Title:||Evaluation of potassium diformate in necrotic enteritis challenge model||Contributor(s):||Mikkelsen, Lene (author); Vidanarachchi, Janak Kamil (author); Olnood, Chen Guang (author); Bao, Yumin (author); Selle, PH (author); Choct, Mingan (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4413||Abstract:||The effects of graded inclusion levels of potassium diformate (KDF) in broiler diets were evaluated in the Necrotic Enteritis (NE) challenge model. At an inclusion rate of 4.5 g/kg KDF significantly reduced NE mortalities by 58% (12.7 versus 30.0%) in challenged birds. The reductions in NE mortalities induced by KDF, however, were not associated with decreased jejunal counts of Clostridium perfringens, the causative organism. KDF did not significantly influence weight gain or feed efficiency in unchallenged or challenged birds. It is concluded that KDF appears to have promise for the control of NE in broiler chickens, particularly in the absence of antibiotics, and that further investigations are justified.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 12 - 14 February, 2007||Conference Details:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 12 - 14 February, 2007||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of Australian Poultry Science Symposium, v.19, p. 157-160||Publisher:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium & Poultry Research Foundation & World's Poultry Science Association, Australian Branch||Place of Publication:||Sydney, NSW, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830309 Poultry||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.vetsci.usyd.edu.au/apss/documents/APSS2007-mikkelsen-pp157-160.pdf
