Abstract:

Growth study was conducted to study the effect of emulsifier in low energy diets containing rice bran oil as fat source in the growth performance of commercial broiler chicken. Three treatment groups were fed with basal diet contains crude rice bran oil as energy source (T1), basal diet supplemented with emulsifier at the rate of 250g per MT of feed (T2) and 80 kcal Metabolizable energy reduced from basal diet supplemented with emulsifier at the rate of 250g per MT of feed (T3). Significantly higher cumulative body weight was noticed in T3 group (2605g) which was comparable with T2 (2569g) and differs significantly with T1 (2422g) at 6th week of age. Improved cumulative feed conversion ratio was obtained in T3 (1.76) and T2 (1.76) groups and differed significantly with T1 (1.89) group at 6th week of age, Slaughter studies revealed comparable dressing percentages between T2 (68.43%) and T3 (67.34%) and significantly lower dressing percentage in T1 (66.94%). No significant difference noticed between treatments in carcass parameters and serum biochemical parameters. Inclusion of emulsifier in the low energy broiler ration containing crude rice bran oil has improved cumulative body weight and cumulative feed conversion ratio at market age of broiler chicken.
