  • A Comparative Study of the Nutritive Values of Triticale and Wheat for Laying Hens

    IMG 2This study examines whether  wheat can be substituted by triticale, a generally cheaper cereal grain, without prejudice to performance of the flock or egg quality. The results show that while triticale is a useful alternative to wheat for inclusion in diets for laying hens, the particular sample of triticale used in the study was somewhat inferior in nutritive value compared to the wheat - judging by small losses in laying performance.

  • 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.

  • 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.
