Comparative Study Between Single Organic Acid Effect and Synergistic Organic Acid Effect on Broiler Performance

A. Galib Al-Kassi and M. Aqeel Mohssen    

Abstract: This study was conducted to compare the effects of single and synergistic organic acids (formic and propionic acids) on broiler performance. Three hundred one day-old mixed sexes broiler (Arbor-Acres) were divided into five groups of 60 birds each and randomly assigned to five treatment diets. A control group is considered where no added acids. Group 2 and group 3 are formed with 0.1 % formic acid and 0.2% propionic acid respectively. The forth group is formed with 0.3% organic acids (formic and propionic acids). Group 5 is formed by the addition of 0.3% biotronic acid. The results indicated that group 2, 3, 4 and 5 showed significantly higher (p<0.05) in average live weight, average daily gain, average daily feed consumption and mortality rate compared with the control group. Nevertheless at the same time treatment 4 showed significant decrease in the feed conversion ratio compared with other treatments.
