  • Reducing Feather Pecking

    DAN 174AAThis project aimed to improve feathering in laying hens by visually demonstrating (through video) the various bird behaviours that indicate positive and or negative outcomes.

  • Controlling Vent Trauma With Stockwound Sprays

    DAW 68ARecent studies found that vent cannibalism was the biggest cause of loss in laying hens. Beak trimming, at two life stage intervals has been used as a means of controlling the problem. However, there is limited information available on the effects of a second beak trimming on subsequent egg production.

  • Nutritional value of pearl millet as poultry feed

    DAQ 243JADue to the prediction that Australia will have to import significant quantities of feed grains which will inevitably lead to higher prices, it is essential that research be undertaken to find alternative feed sources for livestock, especially poultry, to reduce the increased cost of feeds and maintain an internationally competitive poultry industry. As current Australian millet varieties have never been evaluated as a feed grain for poultry, the main objective of this project was to examine the potential of two millet varieties (Katherine pearl millet and Siberian millet) as poultry feed ingredient. The results demonstrate that Katherine pearl millet could be incorporated into the diets of hens without any adverse effect on layer performance or egg production. 

  • Urban Fringe Land Use Conflict: Two Poultry Case Studies

    UNE 59ALand use is a common source of conflict for many sectors of Australian agriculture including the poultry industry, particularly in areas on the urban fringe or where there is significant rural residential development. To determine effective solutions to this issue, this study investigated two case study areas in Australia and conducted extensive interviews with relevant groups in order to produce a set of recommendations for the Australian poultry industry.  

  • Alternative protein sources for laying hens

    IMG 3The need to expand the protein options available to the poultry industry was the catalyst for this study. The increasing worldwide demand for chicken, particularly in developing countries, will mean that the poultry industry will need to come up with agriculturally and economically sustainable feedstuffs that will provide chickens with protein.
