Six ileal-cannulated pigs that averaged 100 kg BW and 16 adult cecectomized cockerels that averaged 2.35 kg BW were used to determine apparent and true digestibilities of amino acids (AA) in a complete crystalline AA mixture and in casein. A protein-free (PF) diet was included as a treatment to estimate endogenous AA losses. Fasted cockerels were compared to cockerels fed PF diets for calculation of true digestibility of AA in cockerels. For the AA diet, true digestibility of indispensable AA… CONTINUE READING
