THE IMPACT OF PLATFORM AND SPOTLIGHT ENRICHMENTS ON CONVENTIONAL BROILER PERFORMANCE, TIBIA MORPHOLOGY, AND WELFARE
Welfare is an important consideration in proper management of broilers. Providing broilers with environmental enrichments may help improve welfare on many levels, and evaluation of potential enrichments is important to ...
Immune response after intramammary challenge with Streptococcus uberis mastitis for cows fed OmniGen-AF® during mid-lactation
Mastitis is one of the costliest diseases in the dairy cattle industry. Environmental pathogens, such as Streptococcus uberis (Strep. uberis), are the most prevalent causes of mastitis infections, while contagious pathogen ...
The Effects of Tryptophan and Probiotic Treatment on Behavior and Production Parameters of Laying Hens
Dietary supplementation can impact behavior expression through microorganism’s activity in the gut microbiome and influence productivity in animal husbandry. Adding supplements to production animals’ diet can impact behaviors ...
The Impacts of Branched Chain Amino Acid Supplementation on Adipocyte Function
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are three essential amino acids: valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Adipose tissue has high rates of BCAA degradation and this has been shown to fuel normal function. Recent literature ...
EVALUATING DIFFERENCES IN BODY WEIGHT, GUT MORPHOLOGY, IMMUNE RESPONSE, AND SICKNESS BEHAVIOR IN FAST- AND SLOW- GROWING BROILER CHICKENS WHEN INFECTED WITH SALMONELLA ENTERICA SEROVAR TYPHIMURIUM
Fast growth rate in broilers comes with welfare concerns and research is needed to determine if fast- and slow-growing broilers differ in pathogen resistance. The objective of this study was to evaluate differences in fast- ...
The Importance of Transfer Receptor 1 in Adipose Tissue
Iron homeostasis is essential for maintaining cellular function in a variety of cell types. Transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1), which is expressed ubiquitously, facilitates cellular iron (Fe) uptake through receptor-mediated ...
