The value of cashew apple (Anacardium occidentale L.) meal in broiler rations






Tropical Agriculture 70(3): 294-296

The value of cashew apple (Anacardium occidentale L.) meal in broiler rations

The feeding value of cashew apple meal (CAM) to broiler chickens was assessed in 2 trials. In trial 1 CAM was included in the diet at 0, 10, 15, 20 and 25% replacing part of maize and de-oiled rice bran. The weight gain at 8 weeks on 10% CAM diet and on the basal diet was similar. However, with inclusion of 15% and above there was a progresive decrease in weight gain. The chickens retained 44.7, 39.9, 37.9, 33.6 and 35.4% nitrogen, respectively.
