Effect of chromium on growth performance, serum biochemical traits, immune functions and carcass quality of broiler chickens



Effect of chromium on growth performance, serum biochemical traits, immune functions and carcass quality of broiler chickens



Scientia Agricultura Sinica 32(5): 79-86



An experiment was conducted using 294 3-week-old Arbor Acres male broiler fowls to investigate the effects of adding chromium sources (chromium chloride and yeast chromium) and chromium levels (0, 0.4, 2.0 and 10.0 mg/kg) to corn-soyabean meal diets on growth performance, serum biochemical traits, immune functions and carcass quality of broiler fowls. Fowls were randomly allocated to 7 treatments (the same control group was used for the 2 sources); the experiment lasted for 3 weeks.
