  1. aAmino acids were analyzed as described by Dai et al. (2014) in Guoyao Wu’s laboratory, Texas A&M University (College Station, TX), while energy, crude protein and dry matter were analyzed at the Essig Animal Nutrition Laboratory, Mississippi State University (Starkville, MS). All values are expressed on the as-fed basis
