Two experiments were conducted to establish an ME content prediction model for normal corn for ducks based on the grain's chemical composition. In Experiment 1, observed linear relationships between the determined ME content of 30 corn calibration samples and proximate nutrients, acid detergent fiber (ADF), and neutral detergent fiber (NDF) were used to develop an ME prediction model. In Experiment 2, 6 samples of corn selected at random from the primary corn-growing regions of China were used… CONTINUE READING
