feeding phase

feeding phase

that phase of the life history of an organism during which food is taken in; for example, the nymphal stage in mayflies.

For the left-handed circular polarization (LHCP) design, the 4 antenna elements rotate clockwise from [A.sub.1] to [A.sub.4], and the feeding phase at the input port of the third-stage power divider before each element is 90[degrees] lagged as compared to that for the former element.
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.
The experimental period lasted for 8 weeks and included 3 feeding phases starter (0 to 3 wk), grower (3 to 6 wk) and finisher (6 to 8 wk) diets.
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 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.
It is the final feeding phase before slaughter and it is largely responsible for the degree of marbling present in the carcass.
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. Rates of key-pecking were calculated by dividing the total number of responses emitted during a session by 60 min.
Since the mid-season feeding phase coincides with the rut, it's really a no-brainer to find the whereabouts of a buck.
The average daily gain (ADG) in weight was greater (p<0.01) for pigs fed TS than for pigs fed WBG diet, at the post-weaning (423 vs 360 g/ day) and growing (763 vs 633 g/day) feeding phases; however, it was similar (P=0.46) at the finishing phase, with gains of 810 and 790 g/day for pigs fed TS and WBG diets, respectively.
