Volume 13, Issue 4 , December 2022, , Pages 475-480

  Despite being important, there are no equations for prediction of ionized calcium (iCa) in sheep and cattle. The objectives of this study were i) to create equations for the calculation of serum iCa concentration based on the serum concentrations of total calcium (tCa), albumin (Alb) and total proteins ...  Read More

Anna Dedousi; Mirjana Đukić Stojčić; Evangelia Sossidou

Volume 11, Issue 4 , December 2020, , Pages 299-304

  The aim of this study was to investigate whether keel bone damage is prevalent in laying hens in Greece. The study was conducted in three industrial farms using different housing systems: (a) enriched cages, (b) floor system, and (c) free-range system. One hundred hens per housing system, randomly selected, ...  Read More
