Effect of Feeding Soya Bean Residue Supplemented With Enzyme on Haematology and Serum Biochemistry of Broiler Finisher Chickens
This study was carried out to investigate the potentials of soya bean residue supplemented with Fulzyme ® at finisher phase (4 – 8 weeks). A total of three hundred and sixty (360) day old Cobb 500 broiler chickens were randomly allocated to four (4) dietary treatments containing 18% soya bean residue meal supplemented with Fulzyme ® with different levels of supplementation designated as 0, 20, 25 and 30 g. Each treatment was replicated thrice with thirty (30) birds per replicate in randomized complete block design (RCBD). There were no significant (P>0.05) differences among treatment groups for all the haematological parameters except packed cell volume (PCV), haemoglobin (Hb), mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) which showed significant (P<0.05) differences but no definite trend in terms of Fulzyme ® supplementation. However, in serum biochemical indices, there is no significant (P>0.05) differences among all the treatments group for total protein, albumin, globulin, urea, creatine, sodium (Na), potassium (K), aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT) and alanine aminotransferase (ALAT) while glucose, cholesterol, chloride, direct bilirubin, and conjugate bilirubin showed significant (P<0.05) differences. Therefore, diets containing 18% soya bean residue supplemented with Fulzyme ® can be fed to broiler chickens with no adverse effect based on haemato-serum biochemical profile.
