Isolation of Campylobacter jejuni from viscera and bile secretion of broiler chickens with diarrhea
(Soc Brasileira Microbiologia, 1997-04-01)
Since chickens are important reservoirs of Campylobacter jejuni and their meat is the most frequent route of transmission for human campylobacteriosis, the purpouse of the present study was to investigate the presence of ...
Hepatic mRNA expression and plasma levels of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in broiler chickens selected for different growth rates
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2004-01-01)
The hepatic expression and plasma concentrations of IGF-I were investigated in three broiler chicken strains selected for different growth rates (HP-Hubbard-Pettersen, a fast growing strain; NN-Naked-neck, a strain with ...
Natural shading and productivity index of broiler chickens
The appropriate use of natural resources in the design of broiler houses provides a reduction in farming operating costs and optimization of production conditions. Therefore, the natural shading around the broiler house ...
Effect of indomethacin on hyperthermia induced by heat stress in broiler chickens
An investigation was carried out to verify whether the heat stress hyperthermia response of broilers is prostaglandin-dependent. Male broiler chickens of the Hubbard-Petterson strain, aged 35-49 days, were used. Chickens ...
Digestibility of feeds containing sorghum, with and without tannin, for broiler chickens submitted to three room temperatures
(Fundação APINCO de Ciência e Tecnologia Avícolas, 2004-03-01)
The traditional method of total excreta collection was applied, using 30 to 40 day old male Ross 308 broiler chickens. One hundred and eight broiler chickens were used, randomly assigned to a 3x3 factorial experimental ...
Air velocity and exposure time to ventilation affect body surface and rectal temperature of broiler chickens
(Applied Poultry Science Inc, 2000-03-01)
Increasing air movement over poultry by using fans (ventilation) has become an accepted means of reducing environmental heat stress over the last several years. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of air ...
Prevalence of newcastle disease virus in broiler chickens (Gallus gallus) in Brazil
(Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia, 2010-06-01)
This study was carried out during 2002/2003, aiming to determine the prevalence of virulent Newcastle disease virus strains (NDV) in Brazilian commercial poultry farms. Clinical samples were obtained from the Southeastern, ...
Does low-protein diet improve broiler performance under heat stress conditions?
(Fundação APINCO de Ciência e Tecnologia Avícolas, 2004-06-01)
Nutrition for broilers under high temperatures is extremely important for brazilian broiler chicken industry because the amounts of consumed nutrients and environmental temperature have great effects on bird performance ...
