Effect of dietary cellulose levels on growth and nitrogen utilization in chicks fed 65 percent CP and 80 percent ME of requirements



Effect of dietary cellulose levels on growth and nitrogen utilization in chicks fed 65 percent CP and 80 percent ME of requirements



Japanese Poultry Science 35(2): 138-141



This study was conducted to examine the effect of dietary cellulose on growth and nitrogen utilization in chicks fed 65% CP and 80% ME of Japanese Feeding Standard. Body weight gain, feed efficiency, apparent N digestibility, N retention and N retention rate were not influenced by dietary cellulose if the levels were from 0.0% to 3.5%, but started to decrease when dietary cellulose level exceeded 5%. Feed efficiency, apparent N digestibility, N retention and N retention rate were significantly higher in chicks fed 1.5% and 3.5% cellulose diets than in those fed 10% and 20% cellulose diets (P<0.05). Body weight gain in chicks fed 1.5% and 3.5% cellulose diets were significantly larger than that of 20% cellulose group (P<0.05). Retention rate of absorbed N was significantly increased by 1.5% dietary cellulose and the level was maintained in 3.5% cellulose group, then started to decrease when dietary cellulose exceeded 5% level. Retention rates in chicks fed 1.5% and 3.5% cellulose diets were significantly higher than those of 10% and 20% cellulose groups (P<0.05). It is concluded that the highest retention rate of absorbed N is obtained when dietary cellulose levels range from 1.5% to 3.5% in chicks fed 65% CP and 80% ME of requirements, and the same tendency was observed in growth and N utilization.
