Determination of Metabolizable Energy in Soybean, Sunflower and Canola Meals Using Caecectomised and Intact Adult Cockerels

Ali Nouri-Emamzadeh, A. Yaghobfar, A.A. Sadeghi, S.A. Mirhadi and M. Chamani    

Abstract: The experiment was conducted to determine metabolizable energy contents of Soybean (SBM), Canola (CM) and Sunflower (SFM) meals by Conventional Addition Method (CAM) included with intact and caecectomized adult cockerels for 7 day: A 3 day pre-experiment and a 4 day experiment period. The values of SBM and CM obtained using intact cockerels were approximately 11 and 5% higher (p<0.05) than those used cecectomized cockerels, respectively. There was no significant effect of caecectomy on the measured values for SFM (p>0.05). Therefore, the effect of caecectomy on ME values in adult cockerels is dependent on the compositions of the meal assayed. However, caecetomised and intact cockerels had not differences for amount of EEL and ENL excretion.
