An experiment was conducted to study the interrelationships between dietary fat and protein levels in the regulation of lipid metabolism in the broiler chicken. Birds were fed diets containing 300, 600, or 1,200 kcal ME from fat (corn oil) with either 124 or 190 g CP/kg. Two additional experimental diets contained 234 or 285 g CP and 300 kcal ME from fat. Regardless of fat level, birds fed the diets containing 124 g CP/kg weighed less and were less efficient than birds fed diets containing 190… CONTINUE READING
