methionine: Weight gain for different methionine sources

Description Usage Format Details Source Examples

Description

Data consist of average body weight gain of chickens being treated with one of the two methionine sources DLM and HMTBA.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 9 observations on the following 3 variables:

product

a factor with levels control, DLM and MHA denoting the treatments

dose

a numeric vector of methionine dose

gain

a numeric vector of average body weight gain

Details

The dataset contains a common control measurement for the two treatments. More examples using this dataset are found under AR.2 and MM.2.
