Effect of Enzyme Supplementation to the Rations in Which Soybean Meal Replaced by Canola Meal on Performances of Broilers

Unal Kilic, B. Zehra Saricicek and Ali V. Garipoglu


This study was carried out to determine the effects of multi and protease enzyme supplementation to the rations in which soybean meal (SBM) replaced by Canola Meal (CM) on performances of broilers. With this aim, SBM (44% CP), CM (37% CP), multi enzyme (Farmazyme 2010) and protease enzyme (Farmazyme 3000 Proenxs) were used. This study was conducted with 270 seven-days-old Ross-308 broilers in 3 groups with 3 replicates including 30 birds. The groups were control (without enzyme addition), protease enzyme group and multi enzyme group. Liveweight gains (LWG), feed consumptions and feed conversion rates on 21 st, 35th and 42nd days were not different between enzyme-containing and without enzyme groups (p>0.05). Abdominal fat content was found low for mixed-sex group and male group (p<0.05), but not for female group (p>0.05) in enzyme-containing groups. There were no differences between enzyme-containing and without enzyme groups as well as sexes in terms of edible organ weights, digestive tract lengths, digestive tract weights, digestive tract thicknesses, intestinal pH, dressing percentages and mortalities (p>0.05).
