• A well-developed gizzard improves gut motility, increases retention time of the feed in the GIT, promotes better digestion and absorption of nutrients in the upper gut, and reduces the risks of coccidiosis and other enteric diseases in the lower gut. (aces.edu)
  • The normal function of the gizzard is to aid in the physical grinding of food materials, to reduce their particle size to aid digestion. (thepoultrysite.com)
  • These results suggest that fine grinding some sources of maize would be beneficial in terms of improvement in FI, LW and weight of proventriculus and gizzard in early ages as well as nutrient digestibility at a later age. (scialert.net)
  • Authors of the study reported a higher body weight and improved feed efficiency at 35 and 49 days old when birds were feed coarse SBM. (aces.edu)
  • The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of administration diet containing locally sourced materials fermented by tape yeast with different moisture content on the weight of the visceral organs, gastrointestinal tract and blood chemistry and profile of Pegagan ducks. (thescipub.com)
  • It can be concluded that the fermentation process of locally sourced ration using a moisture content of 50% gives the optimal result on the weight of visceral organ, gastrointestinal tract and also blood chemistry and profile of Pegagan ducks. (thescipub.com)
  • Feed intake, body weight gain, feed conversion ratio, mortality, bone growth, visceral organ development, and activities of digestive enzymes were similar between the groups from hatch to 21 days of age. (ajas.info)
  • The results revealed that birds exposed to heat stress showed significant decrease in body weight (BW) and increase in feed conversion ratio (FCR) compared to the control group. (scielo.org.za)
  • Garman and Neilson (1992) note that the presence of gizzard shad and detritivores in Virginia tidal freshwater suggest that autochthonous production is important in these systems relative to non-tidal areas upstream, where fishes primarily consume terrestrial arthropods (Garman, 1991).

  • The present study investigated the impact of parity 1 gilt body weight during late gestation (d 109) on subsequent reproductive performance of sows and performance of suckling pigs. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • We examined the role of the omnivorous fish, gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum), in transporting nutrients from sediments into the water column and their subsequent impacts on phytoplankton. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • From the very beginning the following pieces of information have been recorded: Date and locality, weight and a drawing indicating size of sex organs using a pair of compasses, and the other the measures taken with a calliper. (birdresearch.dk)
  • Researchers[7,also reported that early period 75% ad libitum restriction feeding gave an economic advantage over ad lib i tum feeding mainly by enhancing feed utilization and able to attain complete live weight compensation by 42 days of age. (sapub.org)
  • A total of 2,404 farrowing records over 6 parities were divided into six groups on the basis of body weight (190, 200, 210, 220, 230, and 240 kg) at d 109 of gestation of 585 gilts. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • At hatching, yolk sac weight increased in H 0−11 and H 12−21 groups. (arch-anim-breed.net)
  • Michaelsen (1902: 33) described Microchaetus griseus, focusing on external characters, mainly the annulation and position of setae, omitting a description of the excretory system and dorsal blood vessel, although observing the much-thickened septa 5/6-8/9, and a gizzard in segments 6-7. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The price of baits used in the study was a commercial retail rate from the same crawfish dealer and was $0.79/kg for gizzard shad and $0.48/kg for formulated bait. (thefreedictionary.com)
