Experiments were conducted to determine whether dietary 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [1,25-(OH)2D3] will alleviate a cholecalciferol deficiency induced by low dietary cholecalciferol and no fluorescent lighting and to determine cholecalciferol requirements as influenced by fluorescent lighting or 1,25-(OH)2D3. In each study, nutritionally complete basal diets were fed to broiler cockerels from 1 to 16 d of age. Experiment 1 had a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of treatments with 1,25-(OH)2D3… CONTINUE READING
