Influence of dietary cereal and energy content on the accumulation of lipids in the liver in fatty liver-haemorrhagic syndrome in the fowl



Influence of dietary cereal and energy content on the accumulation of lipids in the liver in fatty liver-haemorrhagic syndrome in the fowl



Research in Veterinary Science 24(1): 72-76



Isocaloric diets supplying about 2900 kcal/kg, based on maize, wheat and barley, respectively, were fed to pullets for 13 wk from point of lay. The number of cases of subclinical fatty liver-hemorrhagic syndrome and the mean liver total lipid, triglyceride and monoglyceride content decreased in the above order of diets. The final body weight, weight gain and abdominal fat score followed the order wheat > maize > barley. Reduction of the energy content of the wheat and barley diets to 2670 and 2490 kcal/kg, respectively, by the omission of animal fat was associated with a reduction in the liver content only in the case of the wheat diets. Egg production and quality were uniformly high and no difference was detected in plasma triglyceride and free fatty acid levels.
