An experiment with a completely randomized 3 x 4 factorial design was used to study the effects of ochratoxin A (0, 2, and 4 mg/kg) and protein (14, 18, 22, and 26%) in three-wk-old broilers. The diets were based on ground yellow corn and dehulled soybean meal. Four hundred and eighty Hubbard x Hubbard broilers were randomly placed in battery brooders, with 10 birds per pen.
