Effect of Albizia saman Seed Meal on the Performance and Carcass Characteristics of Finisher Broilers

Ikpe Juliana. Nneka, Azu Donatus E.O

Albizia saman seed was cooked, dried, toasted and milled to obtain the seed meal. The meal was used in formulating diets for broiler finishers at 0 %, 2.5 %, 5.0 % and 7.5 % inclusion rate tor treatment 1, treatment 2, treatment 3 and treatment 4 respectively. The treatment diets were fed to a total of 120, four weeks old marshal breed of broilers. The broilers were randomly assigned to the four treatment groups in a complete randomized design at 30 broilers per group. The birds were raised in a deep litter pen. The experiment lasted for 28days. The result showed a significantly different (P & amp, amp, lt, 0.05) increase in weight gain as inclusion rate of the seed meal increases. There were no difference (P & amp, amp, gt, 0.05) in all the organs and breast muscle while the thigh/drumstick was highest in treatment 4. The study recommends the use of Albizia saman seed meal at up to 7.5 % inclusion level in broiler finisher diet.
