The effect of diet and genetic constitution on growth curves and efficiency in rats

The effect of diet and genetic constitution on growth curves and efficiency in rats

Animal Production 25(3): 381-388

Equations relating biomass to cumulative food taken freely were defined in rats from weaning to 200 days of age. Two inbred lines of the IIM strain: alpha , of medium adult weight, and b, of low adult weight, were fed on 2 different diets, X and Z. Groups formed were: alpha X, alpha Z, bX and bZ. Bodyweight and food intake were recorded during one day every second day.
