Utilization of Juice Wastes as Corn Replacement in the Broiler Diet

Yose Rizal, Maria Endo Mahata, Mira Andriani and Guoyao Wu

An experiment was conducted with 80 unsexed broilers of the Arbor Acress strain to determine the capability of a carrot and fruit juice wastes mixture (carrot, apple, mango, avocado, orange, melon and tree tomato) in the same proportion for replacing corn in broiler diet. This study involved a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 5 treatments (0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% of juice wastes mixture in diets) and 4 replicates per treatment. Diets were isonitrogenous (22% crude protein) and isocaloric (3000 kcal/kg diet). Measured variables were feed consumption, average daily gain, feed conversion, as well as percentages of abdominal fat pad, carcass, digestive organs (liver, pancreas and gizzard) and heart. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance for CRD. Increasing juice wastes mixture levels in diets increased feed consumption (p<0.05) and average daily gain (p<0.01), while improving feed utilization efficiency (p<0.05). These treatments also affected (p<0.05) abdominal fat pad percentage but had no effect (p>0.05) on carcass, liver, pancreas, gizzard or heart percentages. In conclusion, up to 20% of juice wastes mixture could be included for the broiler diet to effectively replace up to 40% corn in the diet.
