PINBOARD SUMMARY

Scientists have found that under heat stress, broiler chickens could supplement for electrolyte loss if an ideal balance of dietary electrolytes is incorporated in rations.

In 10 seconds…Why? Dietary electrolyte balance could cheaply ameliorate the negative impacts of heat stress prevalent in the tropics and during dry season in the temperate region, by enhancing the ...
