New research in the journal Poultry Science examines the impact of xylanase, amino acid density and fat levels on broiler chickens.

The research team, including corresponding author Dr. Edgar Oviedo-Rondón, formulated diets and examined the impacts on broiler performance, energy utililization, digestibility and carcass traits.

from the abstract

This experiment evaluated the interactive effects among xylanase (XL; 0, 8,000, 16,000, and 32,000 BXU/kg), amino acid density (AA; high and low 10% difference), and additional fat (AF; 0 or +1.17%) applied postpellet in corn-soybean meal diets with dried distillers grains with solubles on performance, energy utilization, digestibility, and carcass traits in Ross 708 male broilers.

The research is available open access online – read Effects of graded levels of exogenous xylanase in corn-soy diets with two amino acid density and fat levels postpellet in broiler chickens: live performance, energy utilization, digestibility, and carcass characteristics.
