Apparent metabolizable energy of cereal grains is influenced by broiler age

Age-dependent AME and AMEn values may need to be considered when formulating broiler diets to improve the precision of feed formulation and production efficiency.

MAHMOUD KHALIL, REZA ABDOLLAHI, FIFI ZAEFARIAN, PETER CHRYSTAL and RAVI RAVINDRAN* investigate whether the age of broiler chickens has any effect on the nitrogen-corrected apparent metabolizable energy of commonly used cereal grains (wheat, sorghum, barley and maize) using the direct method by the ...
