Abstract: ABSTRACT: Broiler strains available in the poultry industry present different requirements for dietary lysine due to their different growth potentials as a result of their genetic makeup. This study aimed to determine the model parameters for maximum nitrogen retention (NR max T), the nitrogen maintenance requirement (NMR) and the efficiency of lysine utilization (bc , and NMR values were combined in a model to estimate Lys intake by simulating different percentages of the NR max T. The Lys intake estimates w…
