Effect of Different Litters Supplemented with Chemical Agents on BroilerCarcass Components
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of the study was to ascertain the effects of the litter type and its chemical supplementation on carcass characteristics, in broilers. An experiment was conducted based on a 3×3 factorial arrangement with three litter treatments (sand, wood shavings, and paper) and three chemical reagent treatments (no reagent, lime, and bentonite) with a total of 270 1-day old male Ross 308 broiler chicks, which were slaughtered at 42 days. Yields were not significantly affected (P<0.05) by the litter type, but there were statistically significant differences according to reagent treatments.
