This study was conducted to evaluate energy and protein feedstuffs
Proximate composition was estimated and metabolizable energy also
investigated in experiments I and II respectively. Sorghum and Soybean
oil meal were also evaluated as main energy and protein sources replacing
maize and fish meal respectively for broilers in experiment III.
Experiment III was conducted as a 3x3 factorial in a randomized complete
block design with three replicates (blocks). There were three levels of
sorghum (ie sorghum (100%); sorghum-maize (46 - 54%); no sorghum (0%))
and three levels of soybean oil meal (ie soybean meal (100 %); soybean
meal-fish meal (50% - 50%); fish meal no soybean (0%)). Most of the
values obtained in experiments I and II conformed to values obtained in
literature, with few variations. On basis of energy sources, in
experiment III no significant differences (p < 0.05) were observed with
reference to daily weight gain, feed consumption and feed conversion
efficiency. One kg of the maize diet was more expensive than 1 kg of the
sorghum diet. It also cost 23.84 cedis more for birds on the maize diet
to gain 1 kg live weight than birds on the sorghum diet. Birds on the
fish meal diets gained significantly (p > 0.05) lower weights than birds
on other protein diets. But with regard to feed intake and feed
conversion no significant differences were observed among protein
treatments. Fish meal diets were more expensive than soybean oil meal
diet, and it cost 27.54 cedis more for birds on fish meal diet to gain 1
kg live weight than birds on soybean oil meal diets.
