Methodology to calculate amino acid requirements in e-Rhodimet® Nutrition Guide (eRNG)
Commonly, amino acid requirements are estimated in experimental trials using optimized criteria such as daily weight gain, feed conversion ratio and breast meat yield in different mathematical models (quadratic, broken line, exponential). These trials determine the requirement in each amino acid for a given ...

A trial at ISMADE (a Spanish research center in animal nutrition) showed clearly that DL-Methionine and DL-hydroxy-methionine (liquid or powder forms) are 100% efficient to sustain piglets’ growth during the post weaning period from day 28 to day 70.
Animals and experimental diets ?
The study was performed on 720 piglets (crossbreed female largewhite*landrace x male pietrain*duroc): 3 ...

Dears Mr. Naranjo and Mr. Lemme, as you well mention in your study, the diets tested are deficient on Methionine (Met) and Methionine+Cystine, therefore not representative of the commercial conditions. It has already been demonstrated that along with the most rapid increase in plasma there is a more rapid feed intake with DL-Met over HMTBa (referred as MHA-FA in your study) at low levels of Met su ...

IntroductionThe carcass yield of commercial broilers is an important factor in the poultry industry. Studies have indicated that an increase in dietary protein content will result in increased carcass protein content and decreased carcass fat content (BEDFORD & SUMMERS, 1985). An increase in protein retention and decrease in fat retention with increasing dietary lysine cont ...
