Effect of feed processing and enzyme supplementation of wheat-based diets on performance of broiler chicks


Effect of feed processing and enzyme supplementation of wheat-based diets on performance of broiler chicks

An experiment was conducted using 336 one-day-old broiler chicks (Ross 38) to evaluate the effects of feed processing (pelleted vs. mash) and enzyme supplementation (with and without .3 g Grindazym GP 15,/kg of wheat in a complete diet) on broiler chick performance from 1 to 36 days of age. Birds were randomly allocated to one of the four dietary treatments, each replicated four times (21 chicks per pen) in a completely randomised design in a 2 2 factorial arrangements. Measurements included body weight (BW), daily gain (DG), feed intake (FI), feed conversion ratio (FCR) and relative weight of gastrointestinal organs to BW (%). showed that the broiler chicks fed the pelleted diets had significantly (P < .5) improved BW, DG, FI and FCR. In addition, birds fed the diet containing the enzyme supplement had significantly (P < .5) improved BW, DG, FI and FCR; however, the beneficial effects of the enzyme were mainly limited to earlier stages of growth. There was a significant interaction betw.
