A.S. Series 71-9
Previous studies at this experiment station have shown that a typical corn-soy diet diluted with glucose to 9.4% protein and supplemented with 0.19% lysine, 0.25% DL-methionine and 0.04% tryptophane could support about 60% hen-day egg production over a 9-month period. An approach was therefore made to determine which amino acids besides methionine, lysine and tryptophane are further limiting production in this low protein diet.
