E. E. Gardiner Poultry Nutritionist Poultry diets usually contain added protein. In the past, this protein supplement has generally been soybean meal, although some fish meal, rapeseed meal and meat meal have been used. Shortages of these protein supplements for poultry diets in the past two years have been due to several fac- tors increased sales to other markets, decreased crop production due to poor weather, and the low catches of fish off the west coast of South Ameria. As a result, the price of poultry diets has increased drastically. For example, the cost of a ton of 22 per cent protein broiler diet rose from in 1972 to in 1974. The price of 16 per cent protein layer diet increased from to in the same period. Since feed makes up 60 to 75 per cent of the cost of producing meat or eggs, the price of poultry products has also risen. The high cost of protein supplements has stimulated a search for alternate sources of protein. At the Lethbridge Research Station, we have used fafaabeans as a protein supplement in feeding trials with broilers and laying hens. Broilers fed fababeans as the protein supplement were more than 20 per cent lighter at four weeks old than those fed soybean meal and White Leghorn layers on faba- bean supplement produced almost five per cent fewer eggs in 28 weeks than those on soybean meal. Wheat is a good source of protein for poultry diets. It averages about 13 per cent protein but, under controlled growing conditions, it can contain over 20 per cent protein. We tested a 20 per cent protein wheat for broiler diets and found it was satisfactory if the amino acid lysine was added. When 20 per cent protein wheat was used in chick diets, the amount of soybean meal in the diet could be halved. At current prices, large savings would be possible in poultry diets if 20 per cent protein wheat were produced for feedgrain markets. North Americans today are eating more meals away from home than ever before. Members M.L.3. Offices in FORT MACLEOD and COWLEY Courteous careful seSesmen es as you? telephone. GORDON JQHKSG8.
