AA and FOS were added to the basal diet at level of 0.05%. Values are expressed as means ± standard error. Data were analyzed by two-way analysis of variance and Duncan’s multiple range test. Means within a row not sharing a common superscript significantly differ from each other. NS: not significant (P > 0.05); *P < 0.05. Dry matter digestibility (DMD), crude protein utilization (CPU), crude fiber utilization (CFU), and ether extract utilization (EEU).
