Short summary
The carcass weight and the breast meat production of broiler chickens could be effectively stimulated by dietary factors, such as by reducing dietary crude protein content with essential amino acid supplementation and by applying butyrate as a feed additive. These nutritional strategies seem to be the proper tools to increase carcass yield and to improve meat quality of broilers, contributing to more efficient and healthy poultry meat production.
