The definite cause of fatty liver hemorrhagic syndrome (FLHS) is still not certain. However, after several studies at this center we can say that the etiology is in part related to nutrition and metabolism as certain dietary ingredients have been shown to have some protective action against the disease (see A.S. Series 76-1, 77-27, 78-5, 79-24, 80-4, 81-5 and 83- 13).
The present experiment was conducted to study the effect of distiller's dried grain (DDG), oats and a mixture of both in layer diets on FLHS. FLHS was experimentally created by force feeding at 120% of the normal intake.
