1. Plasma concentrations of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor I(IGF-I) were determined in individually caged broiler breeder females from 17 to 30 weeks of age. The birds were fed ad libitum or restricted during rearing in a randomised block design. Restricted birds were fed ad libitum after laying an egg and egg production was recorded to 54 weeks. 2. GH concentrations were higher in restricted compared with ad libitum-fed birds at 17 to 21 weeks of age and were similar… CONTINUE READING
