Abstract:
An experiment was conducted to study the combined effect of panchagavya with phytogenic feed additives such as Andrographis paniculata, garlic and turmeric as an alternative to antibiotic growth promoter in commercial broiler chicken on carcass characteristics for a period of five weeks with two hundred and forty commercial, sex separated day-old Vencobb broiler chicks. These chicks were randomly allotted into six treatment groups with five replicates of eight chicks each. The treatment groups consisted of control-basal diet (T1), basal diet with oxytetracycline- 50 ppm (T2), basal diet with panchagavya -7.5 g/kg (T3), basal diet with panchagavya - 7.5 g/kg and Andrographis paniculata – 2 g/kg (T4), basal diet with panchagavya -7.5 g/kg and garlic-1 g/kg (T5) and basal diet with panchagavya -7.5 g/kg and turmeric-1 g/kg (T6). In this study, the results revealed dietary supplementation of panchagavya and phytogenic feed additives did not differ in carcass characteristics in broilers as compared to antibiotic.
