Following outbreaks of jute seed poisoning in pigs in northern Queensland (Johnson and Toleman 1982) it was discovered that quantities of the contaminated sorghum grain involved had been used for the preparation of poultry rations. As there was circumstantial evidence of poisoning of young chickens from one large poultry unit in the area, experiments were undertaken to assess the effect of different concentrations of jute seed in diets on the mortality and growth rate of young chckens.
