The objective of this research was to determine the optimal level of an encapsulated butyric acid (ButiPEARL) based on the performance of male Cobb broilers reared to 42 d of age and to investigate its effects on intestinal morphology. Experiment 1 ( EXP 1: ) consisted of 4 treatments with 12 replicate pens that contained 45 broilers, and Experiment 2 ( EXP(More)
Intact and cecectomized adult male, Single Comb White Leghorns were fasted for 24 hr prior to the initiation of the collection period. Excreta were quantitatively collected from each of the unfed control roosters for a 24 to 48 hr fasting period. The amino acids excretion values (mg/bird/24 hr) were not significantly different (P greater than .05) between(More)
