An experiment was conducted
with 128, 7 days old Vencobb broiler chicks to study the effect of feeding
different protein concentrates (Jasoprot, Provita, Fishpro) on the performance
of broiler. The dietary treatment was fish meal based control diet where
fish meal was replaced by different protein concentrates. The live weight
of broilers fed different protein concentrates differed significantly
(p< 0.01) at 4, 5 and 6th weeks of age. The live weight gain during 2-6
weeks in Jasoprot was higher than other treatments. Broilers fed Josoprot
diet had better feed conversion ratio than other dietary treatments.
At 6 weeks of age, the production number in Jasoprot diet was significantly
(p< 0.01) higher than other dietary treatments. Similar trend was observed
in performance index. Survivability was similar in different treatments
during the experimental period. Net profit was higher (p< 0.01) in Jasoprot
diet as compared to other treatments. It can be concluded that protein
concentrates available in the market could replace fish meal from broiler
diet with satisfactory performance. However, Jasoprot seems to be the
best as protein concentrates studied in respect of broiler performance
and financial return.
