Effects of Dietary Bamboo Charcoal Powder Including Vinegar Liquid on Growth Performance and Histological Intestinal Change in Aigamo Ducks

J. Ruttanavut, K. Yamauchi, H. Goto and T. Erikawa

Abstract:
To investigate effects of a mixture of bamboo charcoal powder and bamboo vinegar solution (SB) on growth performance and histological intestinal change, 48 mixed sex Aigamo ducks were fed the basal commercial diet supplemented with SB at 0, 0.1 and 1% ad libitum for 49 days. Although, feed intake, weight gain and feed efficiency were not significantly different, the growth performance tended to be improved with increasing dietary SB. In these birds, also the intestinal villus height, villus area, epithelial cell area and cell mitosis in all intestinal segments tended to be increased with increasing dietary SB and increased in 1% dietary group (p<0.05). Besides, protuberated cells were observed on the villus apical surface in SB groups. These histological intestinal alterations of the villi and epithelial cells suggest that the intestinal function would be hypertrophied by the dietary SB and that the dietary SB can use at 1% level for Aigamo duck diets.
