Abstract: This study was conducted to evaluate canola meal from biodiesel production as a feed ingredient for broilers. One-d-old commercial strain male broilers were randomly assigned to experimental diets with 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% canola meal. Diets were formulated to meet digestible amino acid requirements for periods of 0-14 d and 15-28 d. Each dietary treatment was replicated 6 times. Body weight and feed consumption were measured at 14 and 28 days of age. The results indicated that no significant (p>0.05) effect of canola levels was observed on feed intake, BW gain, feed conversion ratio, or mortality during the experimental period compared with control diets of soybean meal. Therefore, canola meal can be a valuable protein supplement for broilers when considered on a digestible amino acid basis. In this study, 25% canola was incorporated into broiler diets on a digestible amino acid basis without any negative effects on bird performance.
