Title: Effect Of Molasses Levels Source Of Energy On Broiler Performance
Author: YOUNIS, AZAHER
Abstract: A feeding trial was performed using 128 day-old unsexed chicks (Hubbard classic).to evaluate the effect of molasses as energy source on the general performance of the broilers, blood chemistry, feed consumption , body weight, feed conversion, some blood parameters and carcass yield. The experimental lasted 45 days, from 23 July till 6 September 2009. The experimental design used was complete by randomized (32 chicks/ treatment, with 4 replicates of 8 birds/replicate). Sugarcane molasses levels used were zero, 3%, 6%, and 9% to eatch diet : A, B, C and D, respectively. molasses levels used respectively.Feed intake was highest with the group given 6% molasses and lowest in the control group (A), no significant with the addition of molasses at all levels (P > 0.05). Increase in live weight was also highest in the group given 6% molasses significant with the addition of molasses at all levels (P < 0.01). The highest dressing percentage was found in the group receiving 6% and lowest in the control group, being 67.7% in the control group (A) and 70.8% in 6% molasses group (C) and feed conversion ratio significant with the addition of molasses at all levels (P < 0.05). Dietary molasses significant ( P < 0.01) increased serum cholesterol and glucose levels compared with the control. Weight of the liver was significant ( P < 0.01).highes in group receiving 6% molasses and significantly lowest in the control group. No mortality was recorded in the experiment and no soft faeces was observed.
