This publication details a series of studies which examined the influence of a number of factors on the observed variability in amino acid digestibility. Age of bird, feed enzymes and feed ingredient processing were all shown to influence ileal amino acid digestibility of feedstuffs. Broilers fed diets formulated on a digestible amino acid basis had superior growth performance and breast meat yield compared to birds fed diets formulated on a total amino acid basis.
