Multiple Phytase levels on broiler performance

    Evaluation of two phytase levels on broiler performance when applying an elevated phytase mineral matrix. A randomized complete block design trial was conducted to determine the effects of a bacterial phytase on broiler performance during three phases (starter 1-10 d, grower 10-21 d and finisher 21-42 d). A total of 1200 day-old Cobb 500 male broilers were assigned to four dietary treatments each containing 10 replicate pens with 30 chicks per pen. The treatments consisted of a positive control (PC), negative control (NC), and NC with the addition of Buttiauxella phytase at 500 and 1,000 FTU/kg, respectively. The PC was formulated meeting nutrients requirement of broilers in each phase.
