Production Performance of Two Broiler Strains as Affected by Season under Rural Environment of Bangladesh

M.S. Rahman, K. Roy and M.S. Dey    

Abstract: Production performance of two broiler strains (Starbro and Hubbard) was investigated in three different season of the year under rural environment in Bangladesh. Both strains were reared separately from day old chick to 31 days of age during (October 2001 to September 2002) winter, summer and rainy season. Each season was treated as treatment with 2 batches, each of 50 birds as replicates within the treatment. Live weight gain was highest in winter, lowest in rainy and intermediate in summer and data showed significant differences among the treatment (P< 0.01). In rainy season growth rate was lower in Starbro strains and has a significant difference (P< 0.01) but intermediate in Hubbard with low significant difference (P< 0.05). It concluded that both strains performed well and satisfactorily in rural environment. However, Hubbard seems to be superior to Starbro and Hubbard could be grown profitably and uniformly under rural environment in Bangladesh.
