Effect of feeding silkworm pupae meal with enzyme supplementation on growth performance of broilers

Effect of feeding silkworm pupae meal with enzyme supplementation on growth performance of broilers

Indian Veterinary Journal 85(1): 47-49

Among the feed ingredients used in broiler diet, the animal protein source alone contributes about 25% of the total feed cost. The most abundantly used conventional animal protein source in broiler diet is the fish meal and in India, production of fish meal is not sufficient enough to meet the demand of increasing livestock population. Therefore alternate source of animal protein has to be explored and one of such unconventional animal protein source is the silkworm (Bombyx mori) pupae meal. These are abundant as a waste product in silk reeling centres and can be made available at a considerably cheaper rate, which may be utilized as an effective protein source for broiler diets. Silkworm pupae meal is a good source of protein (55%), fat (25%), crude fibre (3%) and contains 10% moisture (Bora and Sharma, 1965).However, silkworm pupae meal is reported to contain about 2% phenol (Venkatachalam et al., 1997), which impaired digestibility and absorbability of dietary nutrients. Enzyme supplementation might improve the nutrient utilization by counteracting the adverse effect of phenol on growth and improve growth rate. So a study has been conducted to see the effect of silkworm pupae meal along with enzyme supplementation on growth performance of broilers replacing fishmeal at various levels.
