Comparison of high-methionine (HM) maize as a substitute for DLmethionine in broiler diets.

Published Feb 8, 2010

Q: Can high methionine maize be a substitute for synthetic DL-methionine in broiler diets?

A: Preliminary studies show that with a 5% decrease in soybean meal (SBM), high-methionine (HM) corn is a potential ingredient to substitute. But 20% of the flock fed HM corn died from heart attacks.
