Replacement of Fish Meal by Sesame Oil Cake on the Performance of Starcross Layer Reared on Pond

J.A.S.M.M. Islam, M.J. Khan, K.M.S. Islam and S. Ahmed    

Abstract: The study was conducted for a period of 6 months to observe the effect of replacing fish meal(FM) by sesame oil cakelSOC) on the performance of Starcross layer reared on pond. A total of 72 birds of twenty weeks of age were divided into three treatments having 3 replications in each. Diet for treatment A contains fish meal and sesame oil cake @12% with other conventional ingredients. Fish meal was replaced by SOC at the rate of 25 and 50% in the treatment B and C respectively. The results clearly indicated the comparative usefulness of SOC as replacer of FM when the cost per kg egg production was considered. All the treatments were found to be almost equally suitable for rearing of Starcross layer. So, it may be suggested to replace FM by SOC up to a level of 50% depending upon the availability and price.
