One hundred twenty male Sprague-Dawley rats, averaging 108.6 g initial body weight, were used in two feeding experiments to evaluate the utilization of Cu in Cu proteinate, Cu lysine, and cupric sulfate. In Exp. 1, 60 rats were randomly assigned to 12 treatments in a 2 x 2 x 3 factorial arrangement of treatments, with Zn supplementation at 0 or 1000 mg/kg diet, Cu supplementation at 5 or 15 mg/kg diet, and Cu form of CuSO4.5H2O, Cu proteinate, or Cu lysine. The purified basal diet contained .81… CONTINUE READING
