Tryptophan requirement of laying hens.
The present study was undertaken to find out whether the tryptophan requirement of laying hens is influenced by the supply of large neutral amino acids (LNAA). A factorial experiment was performed in which the dietary tryptophan concentration was varied at six different levels (1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2.0, and 2.5 g tryptophan/kg diet). As the second factor, the dietary concentrations of LNAA (is...متن کامل
Interactions of various supplies of isoleucine, valine, leucine and tryptophan on the performance of laying hens.
The present study was undertaken to investigate the interactions among the supplies of isoleucine, leucine, valine, and tryptophan in laying hens. A three-factor trial was conducted with laying hens in which the dietary concentrations of isoleucine (5.7, 8.0, and 11.5 g/kg), valine and leucine (6.3 and 7.2 g/kg and 10.1 and 11.5 g/kg, respectively), and tryptophan (1.5 and 2.4 g/kg) were varied...متن کامل
The effects of housing systems on the calcium requirement for eggshell production, eggshell quality and on the breaking strength of the hen’s tibia were evaluated. Unenriched cages (UN) (24 laying hens), enriched cages (EN) (16 laying hens) and floor system (FS) (24 laying hens) were used in this experiment. The eggshell production of laying hens from 19 to 66 weeks of age was higher (P < 0.01)...متن کامل
The bacterium Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae can infect a wide range of mammals (including humans) and birds. Disease outbreaks (erysipelas) have been considered unusual in chickens internationally, but outbreaks with high mortality and egg production losses have been diagnosed in Swedish laying hen flocks every year since 1998. Different aspects of E. rhusiopathiae infection in chickens were exa...متن کامل
Requirement of Digestible Sulfur Amino Acids in Laying Hens Fed Sorghum- and Soybean Meal-Based Diets
Two experiments were done to evaluate the effect of increasing levels of dietary digestible methionine (Met) and Met:cysteine (Met:Cys) ratio on the productivity of Hy-Line W-36 laying hens fed sorghumand soybean meal-based diets. In Exp. 1, 160 hens from 68 to 75 weeks of age were assigned to four dietary levels of digestible Met (0.20 0.24, 0.28 and 0.32%). The digestible total sulfur amino a...متن کامل
