Effect van verschillende energie/eiwit verhoudingen in het voer tijdens de opfok- en legperiode op lichaamssamenstelling, productie, bevedering, gedrag en nakomelingen van vleeskuikenouderdieren = Effect of different energy/protein ratios of the diet during rearing and laying on body composition, performance, feather cover, behaviour, and offspring of broilers breeders

In this study the effect of different energy/protein ratios of the diet during the different phases of Ross 308 broiler breeders was investigated. Applying an increased energy/protein ratio during the rearing phase results in positive effects on body composition, behavior, reproduction and profit. The standard energy/protein ratio during the 1st phase shows the best results, while a higher ratio during the 2nd phase shows the best incubation results and profit.
