Research efforts have focused on defining nutritional needs of broilers and the use of alternative ingredients and exogenous enzymes, which can lower feed costs. Dr. Dozier’s emphasis on broiler research has been practical and application oriented, so as to benefit the broiler industry both here in the USA and abroad. Through his numerous papers on the metabolizable energy and amino acid requirements of broilers, the industry has been able to formulate diets closer to the birds requirement, improving performance and saving considerably in the cost of production. Hence, his research efforts has had a considerable impact on broiler production.
