Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the effect of phytogenic mixture supplementation on the meat quality and survivability of broilers in winter season. Two hundred eighty eight day-old commercial chicks were subjected to eight dietary treatments consisting of three replicates of twelve chicks in each replicate were reared for a period of 6 weeks in winter season to find the effect of following treatments, namely; T0- Negative control, T1-control, T2-0.5% Amla + 0.5% Ashwagandha + 0.25% Turmeric powder,T3-0.25% Amla + 0.5% Ashwagandha + 0.25%Turmeric powder, T4-0.125% Amla + 0.5% Ashwagandha + 0.25% Turmeric powder, T5- 0.5% Amla + 0.25% Ashwagandha + 0.25% Turmeric powder, T6-0.5% Amla + 0.125% Ashwagandha +0.25% Turmeric powder and T7-0.5% Amla + 0.5% Ashwagandha + 0.125% Turmeric powder. The meat quality and survivability of broilers were studied. Standard managemental practices were followed during the experimental period. Supplementation of phytogenic mixture improved the meat quality and survivability in winter season. Better values were recorded in treatment groups supplemented with 0.5% amla and 0.5% ashwagandha with 0.25% or 0.125% turmeric powder (T2 and T7).
Addition of phytogenic mixture consisting of 0.5% amla and 0.5% ashwagandha with 0.25% or 0.125% turmeric powder can be effectively supplemented as an alternative to antibiotics growth promoter in poultry ration in winter for the production of lean and herbal meat with improved effect on the survivability of birds.
