The effects of enzyme supplementation on the nutritive value of rye grain (Secale cereale) for the young broiler chick

Two dose-response experiments utilizing differing enzyme concentrations were carried out to determine the level of a crude enzyme preparation (Trichoderma viride cellulase) required to obtain maximum growth performance in young broiler chicks fed a 60% rye diet. Enzyme concentrations utilized in these studies ranged from.05 to 12.8 g enzyme/kg diet. Enzyme supplementation at the 3.2 g/kg diet level yielded increases in feed consumption and weight gain of 71 and 193%, respectively; and the feed to gain ratio was improved by 43% compared with that for the unsupplemented rye control diet. As no further growth response was obtained by increasing the enzyme concentration, the enzyme level utilized in a subsequent study was 3.2 g/kg diet. A balance study using 2-wk-old broiler chicks was carried out to determine the effect of enzyme supplementation on the bioavailable energy (AME(n)) and apparent protein digestibility (APD) of a 60% wheat diet replaced by rye in 10% increments. In the 60% rye diets, the enzyme addition increased the dietary AME(n) and APD by 23 and 12%, respectively, compared with the unsupplemented diet. The AME(n) and APD of the 60% wheat control diet were increased 9.7 and 4.6%, respectively, by enzyme addition. The data suggest that the AME(n) of rye grain is increased by enzyme supplementation; however, alternate methodology will have to be employed to quantitatively determine the extent of these improvements.

Five triticale varieties (TL 10, TL 19, TL 21, TL 22 and TL 23) were evaluated for their nutritive value in egg and meat-type chicks. The growth response indicated that triticale can completely replace maize in chick rations. No statistical differ...
