Effect of vitamin C on stress in broiler flocks

Seventh European Poultry Conference, Paris 1986 Volume 1 General, genetics, nutrition, posters: 353-357
Effect of vitamin C on stress in broiler flocks
The effect of vitamin C incorporation at 0, 250 and 500 mg/kg in broiler diets on stress at stocking densities of 18 and 23/msuperscript 2 and with a single handling of the birds was studied. The higher stocking density resulted in lower weight gain, but was nearly compensated for by the highest dose of vitamin C. With the lower stocking rate vitamin C resulted in higher weight gains.
