Abstract

The present study aimed to evaluate the influence of differently processed Mucuna pruriens seed meal (boiled, fermented and soaked) at two levels (5 and10%) on growth performance of broilers during the finisher phase. A total of 420, four-week-old broilers (Ross breed) were randomly divided into seven treatment groups. Every treatment was replicated three times with twenty birds per each replicate. The parameters were evaluated in growth performance (final body weight, weight gain, feed intake, feed to gain ratio and mortality). Results of the present study revealed that growth performance, final body weight (3013.33g), weight gain (1783.11g) feed intake (3743.33g) and feed to gain ratio (2.08) were improved with 5 percent Mucuna pruriens seed meal diet supplementation while10 percent Mucuna pruriens seed meal showed lower body weight, weight gain, feed intake and feed to gain ratio. The results of the present study furthered showed that growth performance in terms of final body weight (3008.33g), weight gain (1778.18g) feed intake (3723.33g) and feed to gain ratio (2.10) were improved with fermented Mucuna pruriens seed meal diet supplementation. It can be inferred that a 5% inclusion levels of Mucuna pruriens seed meal supplemented diet of all the processing methods has had a beneficial impact on growth performance of broiler finisher chickens while fermented mucuna pruriens seed meal became the most effective processing out of the three methods employed.
