A.S. Series 78-5
Fatty liver-hemorrhagic syndrome continues to account for about 10% of the mortality among caged laying hens. Previous studies have shown that liver fat accumulation is suppressed when oats or wheat are used as part of the diet. Two experiments using oat hulls, wheat bran or cellulose as a fiber source were completed this past year. The first experiment involved a normal feeding regime, while the force-feeding technique was used in the other.
