Abstract:

A study was conducted to study the effect of drumstick leaf meal as a natural feed additive on growth performance, feed intake and feed conversion ratio and economics of broiler chicken. A Eighty, day-old broiler chicks (Vencob-430) were randomly weighed and assigned to four dietary treatments having 20 birds in each dietary treatment consist of four replicates of 5 birds were reared in deep litter system. Chicks were distributed in 3 different inclusion levels of Moringa olifera leaf meal diets 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% with 1 control diet. The birds were fed the experimental diets and water was provided without restriction throughout the experimental period. The results showed that significant (P<0.05) effect on final body weight and weight gain feed intake and feed conversion ratio in dietary feeding of 0.5% MOLM as compared to that of standard broiler ration (control group). The better feed conversion ratio (1.70) was observed at 0.5% MOLM group and the different levels of MOLM exhibit significant influence on growth performance of broilers. It is concluded that 0.5% MOLM in broiler diets can be used as natural feed additive for enhancing growth performance, feed intake and feed conversion and enhanced the cost of broilers.
