Nutritive value of poultry by-product meal. 1. Metabolizable energy values as influenced by method of determination and level of substitution.

Abstract

Experiments were conducted to determine the metabolizable energy (MEn) of eight poultry by-product meal (PBPM) samples. Samples averaged 5.44% moisture, 4.84 kcal gross energy (GE)/g dry matter (DM), 61.2% crude protein, 13.38% ether extract, 16.1% ash, 5.14% calcium, and 2.36% phosphorus. Samples of PBPM were substituted in the diet at levels of 20 and 40… (More)
