Cupric citrate as growth promoter for broiler chickens in different rearing stages


Cupric citrate as growth promoter for broiler chickens in different rearing stages



Scientia Agricola 60(3): 441-445



DOI: 10.1590/s0103-90162003000300004

Feeding cupric citrate as alternative to cupric sulfate to broilers has been suggested in the literature. Day-old male broiler chicks (1200) were used in an experiment to evaluate the efficacy of cupric citrate supplementation (75 mg Cu kg-1) during the 1-21, 22-42 or 1-42 day periods in comparison to an unsupplemented diet and a diet supplemented with cupric sulfate (200 mg Cu kg-1, 1-42 days). A randomized block design was used, with five treatments, six replicates and 40 birds per pen.
