Abstract: This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary DDGS levels on small intestinal morphology of broilers. A total of 720 Cobb 48 male broilers were used in this experiment. Birds were fed diets formulated to contain 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% DDGS, respectively for a period of 6 week. On day 21 and 42, significant differences were observed in Villus Height (VH), Crypt Depth (CD) and the ratio of villus height to crypt depth (VCR) in duodenum, jejunum and ileum except for ileum on day 42. About 10-15% DDGS inclusion level showed better VH, CD and VCR for broiler intestinal morphology. Therefore, dietary added with DDGS can improve intestinal morphology, up till to 15% DDGS concentrations were considered to be suitable for broiler starter and grower age.
