Studies were conducted to evaluate the ability of supplemental microbial phytase to improve performance of young chicks fed phytate-containing, amino acid-deficient diets. Diets based on corn and peanut meal or soybean meal (SBM) and dextrose were fed to young chicks housed in battery cages for 10- and 13-d experimental periods. Assays were designed to evaluate phytase supplementation of both amino acid-deficient and amino acid-adequate diets. Weight gain, feed intake, and gain:feed values of… CONTINUE READING
