Broiler males were given a series of feeds from 0 to 8 wk having all nutrients advocated by the NRC (1984) and were compared with birds offered feeds with available P continuously 10% below recommendation. At termination, birds in pens were divided for cooping, and coops were either subjected to 6 h of truck transportation and 4 h of preslaughter rest or held stationary for 10 h. High summer temperatures existed throughout experimentation, and low dietary P reduced body weight gain through the… CONTINUE READING
