Abstract:Ideal protein concept was tested by evaluating the growth performance and nitrogen utilization of broiler birds (0-28 days). The most limiting essential amino acids (EAAs), L-Lysine, DL-Methionine, L-Tryptophan and L-Threonine were used in supplementing broiler diets in which crude protein levels were reduced across the diets. Crude protein (CP) levels varied from 23.0% in the control diet with the addition of the most limiting EAAs to other diets. Diet 6 had the lowest CP of 11.0%. Growth parameters and nitro… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
