A.S. Series 72-14
As a contribution toward the efforts of the American Feed Manufacturers Association's petition to the Food and Drug Administration to permit selenium additions to animal feeds, two flocks of Large Broad White turkeys in South Dakota were monitored. Each flock v/as observed three times during the growing season and at slaughter. Feed samples were taken periodically throughout the growing period and tissue samples were taken after coding and packaging. A portion of the distal end of the pectoralis minor (breast muscle) and the liver were obtained. Selenium analyses were conducted according to the method of Olson (1969).
