EFFECT OF FEEDING ON THE CONSUMPTION OF FODDER AND THE STRUCTURE OF BROILERS CARCASSES
AbstractThe consumption of feed, protein and essential amino acids, as well as the metabolisable energy, to obtain one kilogram gain, registered better results, although they are not statistically ensured for the feed used in group 1 as compared to the feed used in group 2. With the feeds mentioned in the 2 periods, Cornish x Rock broilers at the age of 60 days registered, on average, a body weight of 1,700 kg with a consumption of 2,250 kg combined fodder/kg gain in live weight. There were not significant differences in the experimental variants regarding the weight of carcasses, the yield at slaughter of carcasses with and without organs, the bones-meat ratio and the weight of some organs such as: liver, gizzard and heart.
