A large number of branded chicken products exist in Japan, and in some cases, the breed of chicken is an important factor used to attract consumer interest in the retail product. In order to establish a simple method for verifying such breed claims we applied the amplified fragment length...
Escherichia coli and Salmonella are contaminants in meat products and pose a risk for foodborne illness. Thermal lethality is the traditional method for controlling pathogens in meat products. It is recommended that ground beef and poultry products be cooked to internal temperatures of 71Â°C and...
Foot pad dermatitis was identified as a welfare concern by the Alberta broiler industry. However, there are no published studies benchmarking foot pad dermatitis or methods of foot pad assessment recommended to producers in Alberta. Thus, the objectives of the thesis were to benchmark foot pad...
Quantitative trait loci affecting Rous Sarcoma Virus induced tumor regression trait in F2 intercross chickensDownload
We performed a genome-wide linkage and quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis to confirm the existence of QTL affecting Rous Sarcoma Virus (RSV) induced tumor regression, and to estimate their effects on phenotypic variance in an F2 resource population. The F2 population comprised 158 chickens...
A phenylarsenical, 3-nitro-4-hydroxyphenylarsonic acid (RoxarsoneÂ®, Rox), has been used extensively as a poultry feed additive for over 60 years. However, little is known about the concentrations of different arsenic species present in chicken meat as a consequence of feeding Rox to chickens....
Xylo-oligosaccharides and virginiamycin differentially modulate gut microbial composition in chickensDownload
Background The emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in pathogens have led to a restriction on the use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal feed in some countries. The potential negative after-effects of a ban on AGPs could be mitigated by improving animal intestinal health...
