Effect of inclusion of grasshopper meal on performance, nutrient utilization and organ of broiler chicken


Effect of inclusion of grasshopper meal on performance, nutrient utilization and organ of broiler chicken



Journal of Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment 5(1): 19-25



In the search for an alternative dietary protein source for poultry, grasshoppers were harvested and processed into a meal (Nigeria). The approximate nutrient composition was determined. The grasshopper meal was then incorporated at 0, 25, 50 and 75 g/kg into broiler diets. Each diet was fed to triplicate groups of 10 one-day-old broiler chicks for 49 days in a completely randomized design.
