Abdominal fat pad adipocyte size was determined in two experiments to evaluate the effect of monensin feeding and withdrawal on female broilers. In Experiment 1 at 49 days of age mean adipocyte sizes were: 49.2 micron, unmedicated controls; 50.0 micron, medicated controls; 55.6 micron, medicated birds with 5-day withdrawal period; and 55.1 micron medicated(More)

Withdrawal of monensin from the feed for 5 or 7 days produced higher feed consumption and weight gain values compared with those of unmedicated broilers.(More)
