Introduction Over the years, animal nutritionists have developed alterations in the quality of diets intended for broilers aiming to increasingly adapt these diets to meet the nutritional requirements of these birds. Studies on the protein nutrition of broilers have considered the use of digestible amino acids in the formulation of diets, which makes it possible to reduce the amount of dietary pr...

Congratulations on such a nice article, great information. Kindly help me understand that the diets either supplemented or without supplemented industrial Lysine were isocaloric and isonitrogenous, as it seems difficult to balance energy and protein ratio to achieve 12mg/kg dig. Lysine levels without supplemented industrial Lysine.

Congratulations to the team. This is indeed an excellent paper and demonstrates clearly how difficult it is to obtain optimum performance in broilers with diets low in crude protein. The only remark I would do is the lack of information on Gly+Ser levels. Including these two amino acids in the ones that had their minimum level (or ratio to lysine) guaranteed might have produced somewhat better results for the supplemented set of diets. There's quite an amount of information showing that these amino acids become deficient when reducing crude protein in broiler diets especially in corn+soybean vegetable diets as used in this trial. Also, the ratio of essential to non-essential amino acids would be nice information that might help the discussion of results.

Yes pls elaborate more about the two different method of formulation based on Digestible Lysine levels. Thanks & rgds-Johnny A.

Alvaro, I agree at first with the meaning of your considerations. However, it should be considered that at levels of 0.90 and 1.00% lysine the ratio of glycine + serine and that of essential and non-essential amino acids does not characterize these possible deficiencies. On the other hand, in the higher levels of lysine these factors should rather be discussed. Thank you for your contribution, in order to complement information on the subject studied.

The guide and the main amino acid for the broiler is lysine and also is essential for the flesh and the frame in between 0.9 to 1.2% is enough for the good performance for broiler apart from the limits in the raw materials.
