Nutrient digestibility of Broiler fed roasted pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) seed meal


Author(s): Madan Prasad Kushwaha

Abstract: An eight weeks (56 days) experiment was conducted using seventy two broilers to investigate the effect of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal on the performance and nutrient digestibility of finisher broilers. The finisher broilers were allocated to four dietary treatments. The treatments were replicated thrice at six broilers per replicate. The dietary treatments were formulated with 0, 5, 10 and 15% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal. The experimental layout and the data were arranged in a completely randomized designed. Inclusion of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal resulted in a fluctuation in the final live weight of broilers fed experimental diets. The highest (P<0.05) final weight (2390 g) and highest weight gain (2340 g) was obtained in 10% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal while the lowest (P<0.05) find weight (2000 g) and lowest weight gain (1950 g) was obtained in 15% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal. The highest crude protein (62.98%) digestibility was recorded in diet containing 0% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal, while the lowest crude protein (60.16%) digestibility was obtained in diet containing 15% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal. The results suggest that 10% inclusion level of roasted pride of Barbados seed meal could berneffectively used for good performance and nutrient digestibility.
