Comparisons were made of the growth and carcass fat responses to dietary lysine and of the lysine requirements of 1-wk-old broiler chickens receiving diets containing either 18, 20, 23 or 25% protein. Similar comparisons were made of the responses elicited by dietary arginine in diets containing 18 or 23% dietary protein. The responses to lysine supplementation and the lysine requirements of chicks receiving 23 or 25% protein diets were similar. In comparing the 18 or 20% to the 23% protein… CONTINUE READING
