Abstract

  • Dietary bovine spray-dried plasma protein (SDPP) had no effects on growth performance or breast-meat yield of broilers raised in a low-antigen environment (Exp. 1).
  • Dietary bovine SDPP, fed at intermediate levels throughout the growth period, improved growth performance and breast-meat yield of broilers raised in a high-antigen environment (Exp. 2).
  • Further research is needed to determine the optimal inclusion level of bovine SDPP and to determine if SDPP should be fed throughout the growth period or in early growth phases only.
