Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of two dietary levels of lysine and four dietary levels of threonine in a factorial arrangement on broiler growth, carcass traits, and immunity. In both experiments, 120 broilers were allocated to each of 56 floor pens (6,720 total broilers). In Experiment 1, two levels of lysine (1.10 and 1.20% of diet) and four levels of threonine (0.68, 0.74, 0.80, and 0.86% of diet) were fed to broilers from 1 to 18 d of age in a sorghum-peanut meal… CONTINUE READING
