Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of various sources of Methionine on growth performance and cost economics in broiler chicken. In a CRD model, 375 broiler chicks (Vencobb) were randomly divided into five groups (T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5), each containing 3 replicates with 25 birds in each replicate. The T1 group served as control group, T2 group was supplemented with synthetic Methionine (Nutrient requirements of ICAR 2013), T3 and T4 groups were supplemented with Methionine producing microbes (MPM) and T5 group was supplemented with combination of T2 and T3, respectively for a period of 42 days. The results of the experiment revealed a significant (P<0.01) improvement in body weight gain, better feed efficiency and lower feed cost per kg live body weight gain in synthetic Methionine (T2) supplemented group compared to the other groups during the entire experimental period. However, no significant difference was observed among all the five groups with respect to feed intake. No signs of mortality were observed among all the five groups during the entire experimental period.
