Three experiments were conducted with broiler chicks where diet composition varied with respect to dietary protein, energy, and essential amino acid (EAA) balance. Birds fed diets varying widely in EAA balance and protein and energy levels performed differently with respect to percentage carcass fat and protein. The absolute carcass protein deposition remained relatively constant between treatments, but body fat content varied depending on level of energy intake. Although abdominal fat content… CONTINUE READING
