Many thanks for the summary and citation. We look forward to Genxing’s paper
Broiler growers in the US are consumed with the feed/gain ratio and concerned that additives like biochar or minerals would reduce intake. Improvement in health and even a marginal improvement in feed conversion should be convincing. Many of the growers here follow the lead of the processors (integrators) they sell to which all have staff animal nutritionists who have to be convinced.

Genxing has published the results in Chinese journal.
I have the paper somewhere and will send it through. Here is a summary
There is good papers from the group at central Queensland University
