Effects of dietary combination of 25-OH-D3 and canthaxanthin on performance, meat yield, bone characteristics and antioxidant status of broilers housed under commercial and experimental conditionsDownload
The effects of 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 (25-OH-D3), canthaxanthin (CX), alone and in combination on broiler performance, meat yield, oxidative status, skin colour and bone characteristics were evaluated in a field trial in Colombia and also under controlled experimental conditions in Canada. The...
The effect of maternal antioxidant nutrient supplementation and age on chick post-hatch innate immune functionDownload
The chick’s innate immune system may affect post-hatch liveability and performance, but is immature at hatch. The development of the immune system begins in ovo and may be affected by hen age and nutrition. Antioxidants are molecules capable of preventing and correcting oxidative damage and may...
The effects of broiler breeder diet supplementation of canthaxanthin and 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 and age on offspring performance traits and innate immune functionDownload
Experiments were conducted to understand the effect of dietary canthaxanthin (CXN) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25-OHD3) on broiler breeder productivity, progeny performance traits and progeny innate immune function. Beginning at 22 wk of age, breeder hens were fed either 1) Control (Vitamin D3 at...
