Abstract: The standard phytase inclusion is 500 FTU/kg; however, pursuant to its widespread acceptance, elevated inclusions are often implemented. Therefore, a feeding study to investigate responses generated by an elevated inclusion rate of 2000 FTU/kg phytase in maize-based diets for Ross 308 broiler chicks was completed. 2000 FTU/kg was found to enhance phosphoric and extra-phosphoric effects of phytase and improve growth performance with tangible reductions in feed ingredient costs to generate one kg of liveweight gain.
