Effects of grain composition of feeds on the performance of broiler chickens, pigs and Korean Native bulls were tested. Least-cost diets formulated to be isoenergetic and isonitrogenous contained US No. 2 Yellow Grain Sorghum, US No. 3 Yellow Dent Maize or a 50:50 combination of sorghum and maize. Broiler chickens fed on sorghum + maize diet had increased weight gain (P<0.05) and better feed efficiency than chickens fed on either the sorghum diet or maize diet.
