Protein and sulfur amino acid requirements of Brown Dwarf layers. I. Feeding experiment

Protein and sulfur amino acid requirements of Brown Dwarf layers. I. Feeding experiment

Chinese Journal of Animal Science 32(4): 25-27

Two hundred and seventy Brown Dwarf layers were assigned to 9 groups and fed on maize-soyabean diets (11.5 MJ/kg ME) containing 16.52, 17.29 or 18.17% protein, and 0.62, 0.66 or 0.7% sulfur amino acid in a 3 x 3 factorial design, from 22 to 60 weeks of age. Layers fed on 16.52% protein and 0.66% sulfur amino acid had the highest laying rate of 69.9%, egg production of 38.02 g and egg shell thickness of 342.83 mm.
