Increasing cost of conventional feed materials has made the alternative feed ingredients a necessity for farmers. Maxizyme EX is a cocktail enzyme with combination of NSP hydrolysing enzymes, amylases, proteases and probiotics developed to enhance the digestibility of feed ingredients while maintaining the integrity of gut. The effect of Maxizyme EX was evaluated by changing the conventional feed ingredients and opting for easily available feed ingredients for broiler diet at farm level field trial. The study was done using positive control and treatment group (containing Maxizyme EX in the formulation). The results were studied statistically, it was observed that prestarter, starter phases and finisher phase of the birds in the treatment group had 9.8% of improved body weight gain. The feed conversion ratio (FCR) of the birds in the treatment group was observed to be 0.08 points lower than the control group having a maximum improvement of FCR of 0.21 points. Thus, the results clearly depicted the influence of Maxizyme EX on increasing digestibility and absorption capability of feed alternatives.
