|Title:||Performance of poultry fed diets containing various wheat cultivars||Contributor(s):||Brooks, Oliver (author); Iji, Paul (author); Mikkelsen, Lene Lind (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5177||Field of Research (FoR) 2008:||070204 Animal Nutrition||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||830309 Poultry||Abstract:||Poultry diets are formulated according to the nutrient content of the ingredients of the diet. Nutrient content may vary widely between batches of a given ingredient. Wheat is one of the most variable ingredients in terms of energy and protein content. This variation is the result of differences between cultivars, soil properties, climatic conditions, agronomic practices such as the stage of harvest and storage conditions (Choct et al., 1999). This study was conducted to evaluate the nutrient composition of four cultivars of wheat grown in South Australia: Wyalkachem (Wyalka), Scythe, Frame and Durum. Proximate analyses were conducted and the replacement value of these grains against maize and the response to supplementation with a microbial enzyme, Avizyme 1302 (predominantly xylanase), was determined.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - Australia, Armidale, Australia, 12th July - 15th July 2009||Source of Publication:||Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition - Australia, v.17, p. 170-170||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||ISSN:||0819-4823||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.conferencecompany.com.au/animalnutrition/
