Feeding and excreta collection techniques, lasting 102 h, for the determination of ME in feed ingredients for ducks are described. Eight and 32 h after feed withdrawal, all ducks received 30 g of dextrose in 100 g of water by orogastric administration. By orogastric administration, ducks received 30 g of test ingredients or dextrose (for ducks used in estimation of endogenous losses of energy and nitrogen) in 100 g of water at 48 and 54 h after feed withdrawal. The collection of excreta… CONTINUE READING
