  • Legumes for poultry: Improvement of lupins and lathyrus for broilers and egg layers by enzyme treatment

    UWA02This research is aimed at making locally-produced legumes, lupins and lathyrus, acceptable substitutes for expensive imports such as soybean meal or animal-protein meals for inclusion in poultry diets. Researchers investigated the role that pectinase enzymes might play in improving the nutritive value of these legumes to increase the digestion of nutrients, improve food conversion efficiency and, at the same time, reduce excessive water intake, wet droppings and soiled eggs associated with these legumes. 

  • Effects of commercial feed enzymes in wheat-based diets on egg and egg shell quality in imported strains of laying hen

    UNE 77AAt the time of commencement of this project, very little research had been conducted into feeding layer hens and results were not consistent among studies of the benefits of adding commercial feed enzyme preparations to the diets of laying hens. This report was conducted to evaluate these benefits and provide Australian egg producers with scientific data to evaluate the processes themselves and carry out an internal cost-benefit analysis.

  • Hindgut function in laying hens

    UNC 12AAThis report details a series of experiments designed to provide evidence of a fermentative acidosis caused in the hindgut gut of layer-type birds after changes in their diet, and the development of a commercial feed enzyme.

  • Lupins for Poultry

    WAU 1AALupins are a type of legume which are an excellent source of protein in animal feed. This project had three objectives: to improve the nutritional value of lupins; to reduce the problem of wet droppings by using enzymes to expand lupins; and to generate even greater breakdown of pectin and cell walls.

  • Inflammatory response to diet in the hindgut of layers

    UNC 14AA2The aim of the  project was to investigate the effects of diet change over the short and long term in chickens, to determine whether this caused an inflammation of the hindgut tissues. 

  • Nutritive value of Lupins for laying hens

    DAS 44AAThe overall aim of this research project was to provide producers and feed formulators with clear guidelines on the economics of using whole and de-hulled lupins and the need for inclusion of enzymes in layer diets containing lupins.

  • Typing of Pasteurella multocida

    UQ 100JAThe objective of the project was to establish a novel DNA-based typing scheme for Pasteurella multocida. This publication describes the development of the first ever Multi-locus Sequence Typing scheme for this bacteria. 

  • Diagnostic tools for differentiation of vvIBDV and characterisation of Australian strains

    CSA 15JAThis study aimed to develop a rapid detection tool for vvIBD strains, and to demonstrate that changes in these strains can be clearly differentiated from overseas strains.
