Preliminary Study on Tomato Pomace as Unusual Feedstuff in Broiler Diets
N.A. AL-Betawi

Abstract:
The objective of this study was to evaluate the tomato pomace (TP) as unusual feed stuff in broiler diets in terms of growth, feed conversion ratio (FCR) and mortality. 300-day old Hubbard broiler chicks were weighed and randomly distributed into 4 groups with three replicates of 25 chicks each. Birds were fed four experimental diets in which the first was the control group (T1) and the other diets contained 10% alkali treated tomato pomace (T2), 10% heat-treated tomato pomace (T3) and 10% sun dried tomato pomace (T4). All diets were isonitrogenous and isocaloric. Feed and water were offered ad-lib during the experiment period. The results of this experiment showed that there were no significant differences (P<0.05) in live body weight due to feeding chicks diets containing TP. The only significant difference (P<0.05) was observed between the control group and those fed dietary treatments. Body weight gain had nearly the same trend as live body weight. Cumulative feed consumption was significantly (P<0.05) affected by feeding TP when compared with control group. There were no significant differences (P<0.05) in FCR of chicks fed different dietary treatments when compared with those fed control diets. Mortality rate was 3% during the whole experiment period, which is insignificant.
