Effect of Replacing Groundnut Cake With Urea Fermented Brewer’s Dried Grains in Broiler Chicks Diets

By Animal Research International, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Summary

ABSTRACT
The effect o replacing groundnut cake with urea fermented brewer’s dried grains at 0 25 50, 75 and 100 % graded levels in broiler chick starter diets was investigated. Five dietary treatments were formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric to provide 23 % crude protein and 2900 kcal/kg metabolizable energy. One hundred and ninety – five day-old broiler chicks (Anak breed) were randomly allotted to five treatments replicated thrice with 13 chicks per replicate, fed and watered ad libitum in battery cages for 35 days. Means of body weight, weight gain, feed intake and feed: weight gain rat o of broiler chicks fed the control diet, 25 and 50 % urea fermented brewer’s dried grains d ets were significant y (P < 0.05) better than those fed 75 and 100 % inclusion levels. Nitrogen and lipid retention, crude fibre and dry matter digestibilities of broiler chicks followed the same trend w th the weight per ormance. Mortality was zero. Economically, i was more profitable to use urea fermented brewer’s dried grains in replacing groundnut cake in broiler chicks diets.
