Dietary sodium and chloride for maximum broiler growth

Dietary sodium and chloride for maximum broiler growth

Proceedings 1990, Georgia Nutrition Conference for the Feed Industry, Atlanta Airport Hilton, Atlanta, Georgia, November 13-15: 152-159

For 3 weeks, broiler chicks were given a diet of maize and soyabean oilmeal with 0.3% sodium and 0.07, 0.13, 0.19, 0.24, 0.29 or 0.34% chloride. At the end of 1 week 0.24% chloride was required for maximum growth but at 3 weeks there was no significant difference among groups given 0.19% chloride or more. In further experiments on chloride requirement it was found that 0.15 or 0.2% sodium was inadequate for growth.
