Schothorst Feed Research conducts research with turkeys in floor pens and in metabolic cages. The trials conducted in the floor pens are suitable for testing feed compositions and additives. The trials conducted in the metabolic cages are suitable for digestibility studies. In each facility growth, feed intake and feed conversion can be accurately determined for each pen. Depending on the goal of the research, several other observations can be performed on the animals such as nutrient digestibility on ileal level, bone quality and gastrointestinal microflora.
