With increased use of least cost formulation more information is needed about individual ingredients, particularly when sub-optimal levels of nutrients are provided. Meat and bonemeal, for example, has been shown to be an inadequate source of protein when used at over 50% of the total supplement for layers receiving low protein diets. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of meat and bonemeal for growing pullets fed two types of feeding programs.
