Stress-alleviating properties of dietary red grape pomace in Ross 308 broilers reared at a high stocking density

  • 2023
  • Issue: 6
  • Volume: 53
K.K. Thema, V. Mlambo, C.M. Mnisi Page: 883 - 893

Nutraceutical plant products such as red grape pomace (Vitis vinifera L. var. Shiraz) contain potent antioxidants that could mitigate stress caused by high stocking density. An experimental feeding trial was conducted using a total of 720 densely-stocked (30 birds/pen) Ross…

Effects of feeding cassava pulp fermented with Acremonium charticola on growth performance, nutrient digestibility and meat quality of broiler chicks

  • 2017
  • Issue: 2
  • Volume: 47
S. Sugiharto, T. Yudiarti, I. Isroli, E. Widiastuti & F.D. Putra Page: 130 - 139

Cassava pulp is an energy-rich by-product of the tapioca industry, and is known as a good media for growing filamentous fungi. It may therefore be not only an alternative to maize in poultry diets, but also a carrier for beneficial…
