Effect of pH-lowering litter amendment on animal-based welfare indicators and litter quality in a European commercial broiler husbandry Toppel K; Kaufmann F; Schön H; Gauly M; Andersson R (2018)Several studies have shown that litter moisture is a major reason for foot pad lesions (FPD) and promotes microbial growth of nitrifying bacteria. The aim of the current study was to determine the possible effects of a ...
One plus one is greater than two: Mixing litter types accelerates decomposition of low-quality Alpine dwarf shrub litter Steinwandter M; Schlick-Steiner BC; Steiner FM; Seeber J (2019)Aims Litter decomposition patterns, non-additive effects, and spectral data of abundant alpine leaf litters were assessed in litterbag experiments containing single species and mixtures. We tested if low-quality shrub ...
