The project will determine the available P requirement of broiler chickens and factors affecting P utilisation from 1-21 and 22-42 days of age.
The University of Queensland
1) Re-evaluate the available phosphorus (AP) requirement of broiler chickens. 2) Determine the effect of phytase on dietary P utilisation 3) Re-examine the optimal Ca:P ratio in broiler chickens 4) Provide safe guidelines to more cost-effectively address P requirements of broiler chickens.
