  This experiment was conducted to test the hypothesis that Cottonseed Meal (CSM) with supplemental lysine and ferro sulfate improves its feeding value by detoxifying gossypol. The performance of 42-days-old straight Cobb*Cobb broiler chicks fed diets containing 5, 10, 15, 20% CSM (with and without lysine and Ferro sulfate) was compared with that of control chicks fed corn and soybean meal-based broiler rations. Four dietary treatments with Ferro sulfate and lysine, 4 dietary treatments without Ferro sulfate and Lysine. One (control), 2-5 (without Ferro sulfate and lysine) and 6-9 (with Ferro sulfate and lysine). All diets were formulated to meet minimum NRC requirements. Lysine levels were adjusted by addition of synthetic lysine at rates of 0.5% of the protein in CSM and by addition of synthetic Ferro sulfate at rates of 0.04% of the protein inCSM. In all experiments, weight gain, feed intake and Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) of broilers at 21-42 days were significantly affected by the diets. Feeding CSM resulted in decreased body weight gain, increased feed intake and inefficient feed utilization. When, 0.5% lysine and 0.04% Ferro sulfate were added to feed, the body weight gains and feed conversion ratio of chicks were not significantly different from those fed the control diet. The FCR of chicks fed CSM plus 0.5% lysine and 0.04% Ferro sulfate at 21-42 days were significantly better than that of chicks fed CSM without lysine and Ferro sulfate. Abdominal fat pads (as a percentage of body weight) were significantly increased by the inclusion of CSM with or without the addition of lysine and Ferro sulfate (p<0.05). Liver and heart weights were not affected by the presence of CSM in the diet. However, this study shows that with adequate supplemental lysine and Ferro sulfate, CSM can be used in broiler diets without a reduction in performance.

  This study was designed to evaluate the effect of various levels of Full-Fat Safflower seed (FFSS) on performance in broiler chickens. Diets containing various levels of FFSS (0, 5, 10, 15 and 20%) were given to broilers from 21-42 day of age. About 350,21 day old broiler chickens were weighted and distributed randomly to 5 treatments with 5 replicates (14 chicks in each replicate) in each treatment. Blood parameters and carcass traits were determined at 42 days of age. FFSS levels did not significantly affect weight gain, feed intake and Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR). Breast yield, thighs, gastrointestinal tract, liver and gizzard weight percentages were not affected by dietary treatments and abdominal fat pad percentage did not significantly decrease. Triglyceride and total serum protein concentrations were not affected by FFSS levels but cholesterol concentration was significantly decreased (p<0.05). The results of the current study indicated that FFSS could be used up to 20% of broiler diets without any adverse effects on performance or other parameters of chickens.

  This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of Iranian Green Tea (IGT) powder in diet onblood parameters and carcass traits of broilers. We used four treatments consisting (Basal diet+IGT 5 g kg–1 feed, Basaldiet+IGT 10 g kg–1 feed, Basal diet+IGT 15 g kg–1 feed and control) and three replicates (15 birds per pen). Results of this study showed that effects of green tea on cecum weight, LDL and Cholesterol were significant (p<0.05). LDL and Cholesterol were high, that related to control and 15 g green tea groups (p = 0.05), respectively. Furthermore, the highest and the lowest weight mean of cecum were related to 15 and 10 g kg–1 green tea groups (p = 0.05), respectively. However, additives had no significant effects on Glucose, Triglyceride (TG), HDL and other carcass traits (p>0.05). Generally, this experiment indicated that treatment with Iranian Green Tea (IGT) powder don’t have positive effects on the broiler except to decrease of blood plasma LDL and Cholesterol reducing the cardiovascular diseases.
