Effect of feeding poultry litter on growth and nutrients utilization in crossbred calves


Effect of feeding poultry litter on growth and nutrients utilization in crossbred calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 54(12): 1118-1121



ISSN/ISBN: 0367-8318

Eighteen crossbred male calves of 5-6 mo. of age were used in a randomized block design experiment to study the effect of feeding different levels of poultry litter through concentrate mixture on the utilization of nutrients and growth rate. Concentrate mixtures contained 0, 25 and 50% protein from poultry litter processed by dry heating at 135.degree. C for 10 hr. The digestibility coefficient values of dry matter, crude fiber, ether extract and nitrogen-free extract did not differ significantly when poultry litter was fed at different levels through the concentrate mixture. Nitrogen digestibility and nitrogen retention were, however, significantly (P < 0.01) lower in the groups fed poultry litter than in the control. The daily gains in body weight of animals fed control and concentrate mixture with 25% protein from poultry litter were significantly (P < 0.05) higher than of animals fed concentrate mixture with 50% protein from poultry litter.
