Abstract:

A total of 144 day old broiler chicks (Cobb-400 Y) were randomly distributed into four groups (3 replicates of 12 chicks) using randomization block design viz. T0 contained no garlic powder supplementation while diet T1, T2 and T3 contained 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5% of garlic powder, respectively along with probiotic powder named probios. Haemoglobin, total RBC, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL and LDL were differed significantly (P<0.05) among different treatment groups. Significantly (P<0.05) lowest cholesterol was recorded in T3 and T2 group as compared to T1. The per cent yield of cut-up parts like neck, wing, back, breast, thigh, drumstick and relative weight of organs on dressed weight basis did not differ significantly among different treatment groups except the per cent weights of liver, gizzard, lungs and abdominal fat. The study revealed that garlic supplementation in commercial broiler diet reduced serum cholesterol, triglycerides and minimizes excessive fat deposition in broiler carcass.
