Evaluation of three bore leaf meal (Alocasia macrorrhiza) diets in broilers

Journal Title: Revista MVZ Cordoba - Year 2012, Vol 17, Issue 3

Abstract

Objective. Assessing the nutritional impact of including bore leaf meal in proportions of 0 (T1), 5 (T2), 10 (T3) and 15% (T4) in the supply of 100 male chickens of the Ross 308 line. Materials and Methods. A completely randomized design with four treatments, five rounds per treatment and five experimental units per round was used. For the corresponding analysis, daily consumption, weight gain, feed conversion, mortality and economic efficiency, for a period of 6 weeks were recorded. Results. No statistically significant differences in feed conversion were observed, but differenced in consumption, weight gain and economic efficiency (p<0.05); with T2 being the best treatment, with a consumption of 4003.4 g, a weight gain of 1794.4g, a conversion of 2.4, and a field net profit of 107.88% were established. Conclusions. The bore leaf meal is an alternative feed for broilers, when employed at 5% of inclusion level, as non-conventional raw material, which can generate a good productive and economic behavior.
