Series Title: Livestock production science vol:36 issue:1 pages:77-80
Abstract: When controlling environmental temperature a large variability within feed efficiency may be explained and modified. Experiments with chickens (control of prenatal temperature) show a variability change within growth and feed efficiency from 20 to 40%, being comparable to effects from biotechnology treatments.
