Effect of wheat source and wet feeding on AME, protein and phosphorus digestibility of wheatbased diets for broiler chicks

  • M Afsharmanesh (a1), M R Mohammad Abadi (a1) and O Dayani (a1)


The literature and recent research (Scott 2002) demonstrated that wet feeding may overcome limitation in feed intake of wheat-based diets, thereby increasing growth rate. However, there have been inconsistent effects on feed conversion ratio (FCR). Thus it is important to differentiate whether differences in feed efficiency can be explained by monitoring nutrient retention. This experiment was conducted to study the effect of two types of wheat ((Durum, HRS (Hard Red Spring)) on broiler performance and nutrient digestibility, when diet were offered in a wet or dry form.
