The objective of this study was to determine whether nutrient digestibility and growth performance of mink were affected by different dietary copper levels. Ninety-six 60-day-old healthy female minks were randomly assigned to 8 treatment groups with 12 animals in each group and fed a diet supplemented with either 0, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256 mg/kg copper as CuSO4 × 5H2O, respectively. Our data showed that body weight and average daily gain increased (linear and quadratic, P < 0.05) as Cu… CONTINUE READING
