Contents of copper in tissues of turkeys fed diets supplemented of different chemicals forms of copper



Contents of copper in tissues of turkeys fed diets supplemented of different chemicals forms of copper



Journal of Elementology 9(3): 399-404



This study was performed in 4 groups of BIG-6 type large turkey hens aged 11 weeks and older. The influence of CuSO4 and two chelates, Cu-Lys and Cu-Met, added at 30 mg Cu.dcm-3 H2O on the concentration of Cu in the liver, kidney and pectoral muscles was studied. The supplementations of Cu in different chemical forms had no effect on the final body weight of turkeys.
