Non-nutritive Feed Issues in Chicken Production

Published: October 01, 2001

There has been growing interest by a number of Chesapeake Bay committees on the issues surrounding the use of non-nutritives in animal feeding operations and their potential impacts on the Chesapeake Bay. The Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) sponsored and convened a workshop that consisted of a series of keynote speakers who discussed various subjects related to the use of chicken feed additives such as the environmental impacts of pharmaceuticals and metals, as well as microbial resistance. This report addresses the first attempt to approach the broad area of non-nutritives in animal rations, in particular, broiler chicken production.
