|Title:||Preliminary assessment of the variability in broiler litter composition and its implication for vermiculture||Contributor(s):||Turnell, James Robert (author); Hinch, Geoffrey (author) ; Faulkner, Richard David (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4474||Abstract:||The success of value adding operations like vermiculture for the broiler industry is to some extent influenced by variation in the animal wastes resource. Broiler litter samples were taken from sheds under different management systems using a sampling technique designed to identify possible sources of variation in broiler litter composition. Analysis of broiler litter samples focused on chemical attributes that would impact on vermiculture, and these included; macro-nutrients, trace-elements, dry weight, pH, EC and gross energy. The results show low variability in the major parameters that could influence the conversion of broiler litter to a profitable resource in a vermiculture system.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 20 - 22 February, 2006||Conference Details:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 20 - 22 February, 2006||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of Australian Poultry Science Symposium, v.18, p. 230-233||Publisher:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium & Poultry Research Foundation & World's Poultry Science Association, Australian Branch||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260
