Performance and some intestinal functions of broilers fed diets with different inclusion levels of sunflower meal and supplemented or not with enzymes

Abstract: Enzyme supplementation of diets enhances broiler performance by improving some of the basic production parameters such as average feed intake, feed conversion ratio, or average weight gain. The enzyme NSPase is commonly used in broiler diets containing high levels of viscous cereals such as barley, oat, wheat, or sorghum. The use of NSPase in diets with different levels of sunflower meal has been not been extensively explored. The experiment was carried out to evaluate the effects of the inclusion of sunflower… Show more

“…Neither SFM nor exogenous enzymes had any effect on broiler carcass parameters during the fattening period (Horvatovic et al, 2015).These results are in agreement with reports from other researchers, who also did not find any response of SFM or exogenous enzymes on carcass parameters (Tavernari et al, 2008;Mushtaq et al, 2009). In the work of Saleh et al (2005) supplementation of cellulase to corn soya diet of broiler significantly reduced abdominal fat.…”

“…Body weight gain significantly improved with dietary enzyme mixture (cellulase, β-glucanase, and xylanase) at 0.01% through the entire experimental period. Neither SFM nor enzyme supplementation had any effect on feed consumption (Horvatovic et al, 2015).…”

“…However, the dietary addition of enzyme or EBFP did not improve carcass weight, yield, breast, and thigh meat contents although the live weight in birds fed a diet supplemented with 0.1% of EBFP was highest among treatments at the experiment end date. Horvatovic et al (2015) also reported that the addition of exogenous enzyme had no effects on carcass traits in broilers indicating that the positive effect of fibrolytic enzyme supplementation on growth performances may not induce the improvement of carcass traits.…”
