A broiler floor pen trial was conducted at the Dutch Institute, Schothorst FeedResearch, in Lelystad. The trial was carried out using eight replicates per treatment with1,000 Ross 308 birds per pen. The concen- Fig. 2. ME Values for a corn soya meal as a function of age (Batal and Parsons, 2002).
trate feed was pelleted and, depending onthe age of the birds, diluted with 10-30%whole wheat (Table 4). Feeds were fed ad libitum. All feeds were calculated to have the same amount of MEand digestible amino acids. Trial feeds werecompared in the first three weeks of age.
Afterwards all broilers received standard feeds. Feeding FMR Ω 3 in the first threeweeks results in significantly better growthand conversion in comparison to the con-trol with fishmeal. This difference in weightgain at three weeks remains until the end.

● FMR Ω 3 should be used at a rate of 2.5%in feeds for broiler breeders in the first layerphase and for broilers at the start. ● The product is composed of stabilisedomega-3 fatty acids and specially processedplant proteins. The in vitro digestion isincreased 5% due to this process. ● FMR Ω 3 contains high amounts of wellbalanced amino acids and extra glutamine. ● The functional nutrients in the productstimulate gut health and also the immuneresponse. ● The use of FMR Ω 3 in broiler starterdiets results in a significantly better perfor-mance. Calculated for Dutch price condi-tions its use increases the profit per 1,000birds started by more than €20. ■ Table 4. Broiler floor pen trial results.
