Investigating the stress susceptibility of various lines of turkeys


Acta Academiae Agriculturae ac Technicae Olstenensis, Veterinaria ( 20): 179-186
Investigating the stress susceptibility of various lines of turkeys
Concentrations of catecholamines and corticosterone in the blood were determined for 300 Broad Breasted White turkeys from lines J-11, J-134, J-22, J-33, J-44 and linecross J-33 X J-44, following immobilisation for 20 h or transport over 40 km for 1 h. Compared with unstressed controls, significant increases in the concentrations of noradrenaline and corticosterone were found in all lines, and significant increases in the concentrations of adrenaline in all but lines J-11 and J-22.
