Abstract:
A study was conducted to investigate the effect of dietary incorporation of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) on carcass quality of commercial broiler chicken. A total of 180 day-old commercial broiler chicks were randomly divided into five groups viz. T0, T1, T2, T3 and T4 consisting of 36 number of birds in each group. Each group was further sub divided into 3 replicates consisting of 12 birds in each sub group. The experiment was conducted for period of six weeks and followed standard and uniform managemental practice. The birds under T0 group (control) were offered basal diet without inclusion of DDGS. Rice DDGS was incorporated to the broiler ration at the levels of 5, 10, 15 and 20 percent in the T1, T2, T3 and T4 groups, respectively. At the end of the experiment metabolic trials was conducted and meat quality of the birds were analyzed. The results indicated that addition of DDGS didn’t have negative effect on carcass quality and organoleptic parameters.
