EFFECT OF DIETARY INCLUSION OF MANGO SEED KERNEL MEAL ON FEED INTAKE, GROWTH PERFORMANCES AND CARCASS CHARACTERISTICS OF BROILERS

Abstract:

A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary inclusion of mango seed kernel on growth performances (feed intake, body weight gain), feed conversion ratio, carcass characteristics, mortality percentages and partial budget analysis of broiler chicks at various levels of Mango Seed Kernel (MSK) as energy supplement at Haramaya University poultry farm.168 broiler chicks with average body weight 45.17±1.08g/b/d (mean ±SD) were randomly distributed to four treatments each with three replications in completely randomized design. At the end of experiment, four broilers from each sex picked up from each replication and slaughtered for carcass evaluation. The four treatment diets used were ration contain 0% MSK (T1), 5% MSK (T2), 10% MSK (T3) and 15% MSK (T4) of MSK to replace maize.MSK contains 8.01% CP and 3675.5 ME Kcal/kg DM.The average daily feed intake during entire period was 121.20, 129.5, 133.5 and 124.68 g/bird/day for T1, T2, T3 and T4 respectively and there was higher (P
