It included four formulated diets in each feeding phase and in each trial.
Feed cost of production: To determine the economic efficiency for meat production, the cost of each one kg BW gain was calculated, in each feeding phase and at the overall of the experimental period.
This is done by changing the feeding amplitudes distributions of the array element in both azimuth and elevation directions, and different feeding phase shift angles between different array elements in azimuth directions.
The proposed smart planar array antenna with 8 x 8 dimensions will be used to achieve different beam shaping by changing the feeding amplitudes distribution of the array elements in both azimuth and elevation directions, and different feeding phase shift angles between different array elements in azimuth directions with values of 0, 25, 40, 50, 55 and 60 degrees.
The study examines the carcass characteristics, body physiological responses, water intake, letter condition and serum mineral chemistry of the modern broiler strain reared under phase feeding programme so as to define best level of each electrolyte and salt source for each feeding phase of broilers life.
The two groups of animals were allowed to eat as much high fat diet as they wanted during their 12- hour feeding phase over a period of six weeks.
Therefore, aggregates were constructed from the average of these two baseline conditions for each pre-session feeding phase.
Table 1 contains the rates of key-pecking (responses/min), averaged over the session, and the obtained rates of reinforcement (reinforcers/min), averaged over the first and second 30 min of each session, for individual pigeons during the aggregate baseline and treatment conditions of each pre-session feeding phase.
Since the mid-season feeding phase coincides with the rut, it's really a no-brainer to find the whereabouts of a buck.
The key to hunting the three different feeding phases is knowing what food the whitetail keys on during each period.
