Abstract
EFFECT OF REPLACING DIFFERENT LEVELS OF CONVENTIONAL MAIZE WITH HYBRID MAIZE (HPM3) IN BROILER RATION

ABSTRACT

The present study was aimed to assess whether hybrid maize (HPM3) can substitute conventional maize as requirement of essential amino acids as well as efficient energy source in the poultry diet. Ninety healthy day old broiler chicks were allotted randomly to three replicated (n=5; 6 birds/replicate) dietary treatments in floor pens i.e. Control (0%), L1 (25%), L2 (50%), L3 (75%), L4 (100%) of hybrid maize (HPM3). All birds were given optimal environment and had free access to water and feed. At increase level in group L4 had slight high feed intake (3873±9.24 g), significantly high weight gain (1936.3±2.08 g) and better feed: gain ratio (1.88±0.003) as compare to others. Dressed carcass weight was significantly influenced with no mortality by replacing the hybrid maize (HPM3) with conventional maize. According to predominant market rate of live birds, improvement of gross (242.04±0.26) and net (73.39±0.41) return was higher with the increase level. The increased net return by 9.2% may be utilized as a broiler management. These results suggest greater amino acid availability in the diets based on high-protein maize varieties. Therefore, HPM3 can profitably be included in broiler diets with the vantage of reducing the use of imported protein sources (such as soybean meal) because of its higher protein content and consequently providing savings on feed costs.

Keywords: Birds, Carcass, Maize, Hybrid, Mortality, Broiler.
