Abstract:The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different zilpaterol hydrochloride (ZH) levels and feeding methods on the growth performance and carcass traits of Japanese quails. In this trial, 224 male quails with 34 days of age were distributed into seven treatments. A factorial arrangement with three ZH levels (0.2, 0.225, and 0.25 mg zilpaterol/kg of live weight −1 ) × two feeding methods (ZH supplementation daily or every two days) plus a control treatment (no ZH supplementation) was applied.… Show more
