Effect of different levels of supplemental ascorbic acid on broiler performance under stressful farm conditions



Effect of different levels of supplemental ascorbic acid on broiler performance under stressful farm conditions



Sarhad Journal of Agriculture 19(2): 175-178



Investigations were carried out to explore the use of ascorbic acid as antistressor and growth stimulant in commercial broiler production and determine its optimum level in broiler ration under local farm conditions. A feeding trial was conducted using 250 commercial broiler chicks, randomly distributed into 25 groups of ten chicks per group. There were five experimental rations with 0, 100, 200, 300 and 400 ppm ascorbic acid in the diet, designated as treatment A, B, C, D and E respectively.
