The effects of supplemental betaine (Betafin) in the drinking water (50 g/kg) (WB) or feed (100 g/kg) (FB) were investigated on male broiler chickens (Cobb×Cobb) exposed to 4 h episodes of heat stress at 34±1°C on day (d) 35 and 36±1°C from d 36 to 41. Prior to (d 1 to 34) and following heat exposure (d 35 to 41), betaine supplementation had no significant effect on body weight, total feed intake and cumulative feed conversion ratios of broilers. The total water intake of WB chicks was lower… CONTINUE READING
