Abstract:

Poultry industry in India has emerged as one of the fastest growing segment of the agriculture sector, ranking sixth in broiler production with an annual output of 2.39 million tonnes of broiler meat. The consumers are now becoming more aware of safety and quality of food products consumed by them. Use of feed additives has become popular due to the absence of side effects unlike antibiotics. The present study was conducted taking 160 day old Vencobb broiler chickens and the experimental birds were divided into 4 groups (T1, T2, T3 and T4) with 2 replicate group of each, having 20 broiler chickens in every replicate in a complete randomized design.On 21st day, the birds under T1 (0.5% level of amla fruit powder supplementation) showed the highest body weight (829.55± 11.41 g), which was statistically significant (p>0.05) as compared to T1 (778.53± 12.34 g), T3 (798.32 ± 13.07 g) and T4 (788.46 ± 12.78 g).Supplementation of Amla fruit powder @0.5% level enhances the body weight and FCR without any adverse effect and at 1% and 2% level of inclusion the increase in body weight was found to be moderate. Therefore, this may prove to a feed additive that can be used in broiler feeds.
