INTRODUCTION As an analog of cholecalciferol (vitamin [D.sub.3]), the one alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol (1[alpha]-OH [D.sub.3]) is slightly lower in efficacy than 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25-[(OH).sub.2] [D.sub.3]) in broilers (Edwards, 2002). Biehl and Baker (1997b) and Snow et al. (2004) reported that 1[alpha]-OH [D.sub.3] improves growth performance, tibia quality, and phosphorus (P) utilization in broilers. However, most studies focus only on starter broilers, and to date, limited information is available on growing-finishing phase birds.
