A study was conducted to determine the effect of dietary energy and protein concentrations in a 3 x 5 factorial experimental design on the performance of growing and finishing ostriches. Energy concentrations amounted to 8.5, 10.5 and 12.5 MJ ME/kg feed during the grower phase and 7.5, 9.5 and 11.5 MJ ME/kg feed during the finisher phase. Protein concentrations were respectively 115, 135, 155, 175 and 195 g CP/kg feed during the grower phase and 80, 100, 120, 140 and 160 g CP/kg feed during the… CONTINUE READING
