A fish meal and a soybean meal sample were bioassayed for available amino acid content according to five different published techniques. The techniques consisted of: 1) a two week chick growth assay (GA) for available lysine; 2) a digestibility assay performed by total fecal collection (TFC); 3) a digestibility assay based on the analysis of ileal contents IA); 4) a procedure based on partial fecal collection and analysis of a dietary marker using gnotobiotic chicks (GF); and 5) procedure 4… CONTINUE READING
