Aladeen Ali Mohamed Adam, Omer Massaad Elbashier


Abstract: This study was carried out at the farm of the College of Animal Production of Science and Technology, Sudan University of Science and Technology at Hillat Kuku. The experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of replacement of Sorghum with Millet and its effect on broilers in the finisher performance included Feed consumption, body weight gain, feed conversion ratio (FCR) and mortality. One hundred and twenty Arbor Acre commercial hybrid broiler chicken in age (28) days in this study were used. The Chicks were randomly distributed in 4 treatments experimental groups, each group has 3 replicates of 10 chicks. Millet replaced sorghum 0 % - 20 % - 40 % - 60 % in group a, b, c and d respectively. The results showed that there is no significant difference among experimental groups on broilers performance when replaced the Sorghum by Millet in finisher diet. Statistically a highly significant difference (p<0.01) between groups for (FCR). Millet improved feed efficiency. The adding of millet did not show any negative effect in the stock health and there is no any mortality throughout the experiment period.
