Resumen

LOAR II, RE  y  CORZO, A. Effects of varying levels of distillers dried grains with solubles on growth performance of broiler chicks. Rev. Bras. Cienc. Avic. [online]. 2011, vol.13, n.4, pp. 279-281. ISSN 1516-635X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-635X2011000400010.

There is no formal recommendation, regarding dietary concentration, when it comes to feeding distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) to young broilers. This study evaluated the effects of varying levels of DDGS in a diet to young broilers from 0 to 14d of age. Diets ranged from 0 to 32% DDGS concentration, with 8% increments. Increasing inclusion rate of DDGS led to decreased body weight gain (BWG), whereas mortality seemed to be linearly increased. However, there was an increase seen in feed conversion (FCR) in conjunction with the increase in DDGS in the diet. An inclusion level of 8% DDGS or less is recommended for starter diets for broiler chicks.
