Effect of a coccidia performance and betaine supplementation on nutrient utilization, and intestinal lesion scores of broiler chickens fed suboptimal level of dietary methionine

    Thee results recorded in this paper support previous findings that supplementation with natural betaine reduced the impact of coccidia challenge on intestinal lesion scores and positively affected nutrient digestibility and feed efficiency in broilers. Increasing intestinal lesion scores were associated with reductions in nutrient digestibility.
