Abstract:

To study antimicrobial effects of supplementation of turmeric on intestine of broilers, three hundred, one day old commercial broiler chicks were taken for the experiment. The chicks were distributed randomly to six dietary treatments having five replicates each and ten birds per replicate. Maize-soybean meal based diet served as the basal diet. The basal diet without antibiotic was given to treatment T1. Treatment group T2 was offered basal diet with antibiotic. In treatment groups T3, T4, T5 and T6, basal diet was supplemented with turmeric @ 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1.0%, respectively. Total E. coli count (log cfu/g) was recorded lowest in T4 (4.55) as compared to control group T1 (7.58). Other turmeric supplemented groups also showed significant reduction in the Coliform count as compared to control group. The total Lactobacilli count (log cfu/g) showed an increment among different turmeric powder supplemented treatments. Lactobacilli count was observed highest in turmeric supplemented group @ 0.75% (7.55) as compared to the control group (4.64). So from the above obtained results on intestinal bacteriology, it can be concluded that turmeric results in reduction of pathogenic bacteria and increment of beneficial bacteria.
