Effects of genetics and maternal dietary iodide supplementation on glycogen content of organs within embryonic turkeys.


In prior studies it was shown that the growth of turkey embryos was dependent upon maternal dietary iodide as well as genetic selection. The current study posed the question of which organ systems respond to these variables. Embryos from lines selected for 16-wk BW grew at the same rate as unselected embryos from the randombred population serving as the… (More)
