The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of programmed intravenous infusion of chicken growth hormone (cGH) on growth and metabolism of young broiler chickens (4-7 weeks of age). Four-week-old broiler cockerels, fitted with indwelling jugular catheters, were randomly assigned to three treatment groups (6 birds/group): pulsatile infusion of buffer (phosphate buffer, pH 7.4)[PB-P] at 3 hr intervals, pulsatile infusion of cGH (15 micrograms/kg at 3 hr intervals)[GH-P], or continuous… CONTINUE READING
