Abstract:

An experiment was conducted on the effect of lemongrass leaf meal as a natural feed additive on the growth performance, serum lipid profile of broiler chickens. Eighty, day-old broiler chicks (Vencobb-430) were randomly divided into four equal groups containing 5 replicates of 20 chicks were offered a standard broiler diet (T1) and lemongrass leaf meal supplemented diet @ 0.5% (T2), 1.0% (T3) and 1.5% (T4) on dry matter basis by partial of control diet for 42 days. Incorporation of LGLM at both 1.5% level significantly (P<0.05) improved the body weight and feed efficiency and serum profile and economics of broilers production. There was significant (P<0.05) serum total cholesterol, triglyceride, in LGLM supplemented birds. However, non-significant (P>0.05) variation was observed in cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol LDL/HDL ratio and total protein in diet. The results from the present study, it could be suggested that the use of LGLM as a feed additive at the level of 1.5 per cent as it improved the significantly better growth performance, serum lipid profile of broiler production was increased.
