Response of broiler strains differing in body fat to inadequate methionine: live performance and processing yields.

Ross x Arbor Acres (RxAA) and Steggles x Arbor (SxAA) chicks were given all nutrients as advocated by NRC (1984) except for methionine. Corn and soybean meal were the sole CP sources, and both strains were compared when feeds were adequate and deficient in methionine (0 to 3 wk, .65 vs .42% with 24.2% CP and 3.20 kcal AME/g; 3 to 6 wk, .54 vs .46% with 20.7… CONTINUE READING
