Growth and carcass yield in different commercial broiler strains


Cientifica Jaboticabal 22(2): 239-247
Growth and carcass yield in different commercial broiler strains
For 3600 Arbor Acres, Cobb, Hubbard and Ross broilers, weight gain from hatching to 49 days averaged 2.38, 2.42, 2.49 and 2.50 kg for males vs. 1.99, 2.13, 2.04 and 1.99 kg for females, and the amount of feed consumed per kg gain 1,82, 1.92, 1.84 and 1.85 kg vs. 1.78, 1.93, 1.87 and 1.86 (all P<0.05). For males of the 4 types, the average carcass yield was 69.77, 69.93, 71.86 and 71.22% respectively, and the percentage of breast meat 14.12, 14.61, 14.69 and 15.26 (P< 0.05).
