This week the Poultry Science Association (PSA) is hosting its first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting. The PSA is a professional organisation consisting of educators, scientists, extension specialists, industry researchers, administrators, producers, and college students who are committed to advancing the poultry industry. The aim of the annual meeting is to highlight and discuss field and research…

The variability of maize

It has been shown by several studies that metabolisable energy (ME) values vary significantly, not only between different feed ingredients, but also between different batches of the same feed ingredient within the same region. When formulating feed using tabulated values, this can result in the variability of maize ME of more than 50 kCal/kg between…

A-maize-ing prediction of energy for broilers

In commercial broiler operations, feed accounts for majority of the input costs, and dietary energy represents up to three quarters of the cost. In poultry, there are major economic implications to an over- or undersupply of dietary energy, as this leads to either reduced or excess feed intake, imbalances in the protein-to-energy ratio, poor feed…
