Ideal ratio (relative to lysine) of tryptophan, threonine, isoleucine, and valine for chicks during the second and third weeks posthatch.
Six bioassays were conducted to determine the ideal ratios of several amino acids relative to Lys. Young male crossbred chicks were fed diets based on corn gluten meal and synthetic amino acids thatExpand

The effects of dietary available phosphorus levels and phytase on performance of young and older laying hens.
In the first of two experiments (20 to 70 wk of age), eight treatments consisted of corn-soybean meal diets (0.34% total P, 3.8% Ca, 17% CP, 2,758 kcal ME/kg) containing 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, orExpand

Further evaluation of nonfeed removal methods for molting programs.
The objective of this study was to evaluate several nonfeed removal methods compared with feed removal for induced molting of laying hens. An experiment was conducted using 576 Dekalb White hens (69Expand

The effects of citric acid on phytate-phosphorus utilization in young chicks and pigs.
Several bioassays were conducted with young chicks and pigs fed phosphorus (P)-deficient corn-soybean meal diets. With diets for chicks containing .62% Ca and .42% P (.10% available P), graded dosesExpand

Standardized ileal amino acid digestibility of plant feedstuffs in broiler chickens and turkey poults using a nitrogen-free or casein diet.
The standardized ileal amino acid digestibility (SIAAD) of 5 plant-based ingredients was determined in 5- and 21-d-old broiler chicks and turkey poults. Two diets (N-free diet, NFD, and a highlyExpand

Protein and amino acid quality of meat and bone meal.
The in vivo protein quality of 14 meat and bone meals (MBM) was evaluated in three chick growth assays and a 48-h excreta collection assay using conventional and cecectomized roosters. In addition,Expand

Amino acid fortification of a low-protein corn and soybean meal diet for chicks.
Seven experiments were conducted to investigate whether a 19% CP corn and soybean meal (CS) diet could be fortified properly with amino acids (AA) to produce performance in 1- to 3-wk-old chicksExpand

Phosphorus bioavailability, true metabolizable energy, and amino acid digestibilities of high protein corn distillers dried grains and dehydrated corn germ.
There is currently much ongoing research and interest for developing new processing technologies to produce corn distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The current study evaluated a highExpand

The effect of citric acid on the calcium and phosphorus requirements of chicks fed corn-soybean meal diets.
Data previously reported from our laboratory indicated that supplementation of a corn-soybean meal diet with citric acid improves P utilization in chicks. The four experiments reported herein wereExpand
