Effects of feeding broiler litter on growth and nutrient utilization by Barbari goat
M. A. Nadeem, A. Ali, A. Azim, A. G. Khan
Four isocaloric (68.71, 67.07, 66.68 and 66.25% TDN) and isonitrogenous (12.96, 13.36, 13.36 and 12.96% CP) diets without or with 20, 25 and 30% broiler litter were fed to 20 male kids for 90 days. Weight gain and feed efficiency were higher (p<0.05) for kids offered control diets as compared to kids fed diets containing broiler litter. There was a significant (p<0.05) decrease in the feed intake with increasing level of broiler litter in the diets. Digestibility for organic matter, crude protein and crude fibre were not affected (p>0.05) by the inclusion of broiler litter in the diets, whereas inclusion of broiler litter depressed (p<0.05) the digestibility of dry matter and ash. Nitrogen balance was positive for all diets, however, nitrogen retention decreased (p<0.01) with the increased level of broiler litter. Blood Na, K, Ca, P and urea-N were within normal range.
