Effect of Feeding Rice Based Distillers Dried Grains Solubles with and without Enzymes on Haemato-biochemical profile of Broiler Chickens
A biological experiment of 42 days duration was undertaken in which 384 day old chicks were divided into 12 dietary treatments as per 3×4 factorial design having 4 replicates per treatment with 8 birds in each. Twelve experimental diets were prepared by incorporating control (maize-soya based), two different levels of rice Distillers Dried Grains (rDDGS) 12.5 and 15%, without and with three different types of enzymes (xylanase, protease and multienzymes). The inclusion of rice based distillers dried grains with solubles (rDDGS), enzyme supplementation and their interaction revealed no significant (P>0.05) difference on the haematological parameters of broiler chicken. The serum cholesterol decreased significantly (P<0.01) at 15% rDDGS level as compared to control and 12.5% rDDGS level. The serum triglyceride decreased significantly (P<0.01) at 12.5 and 15% rDDGS levels compared to control diet. The serum glucose significantly (P<0.05) increased by multienzymes supplementation compared to xylanase and control diet. The serum total protein, albumin and globulin significantly (P<0.01) increased in protease supplemented groups as compared to control and other enzyme supplemented groups. The interaction of rDDGS levels and enzyme supplementation revealed no significant (P>0.05) effect on any of the serum parameters. Thus, it may be concluded that feeding of (rDDGS) up to 15% and soybean meal based diets without or with protease, xylanase and multienzymes in broiler chickens did not have any adverse effect on haematological and serological parameters. Protease supplementation has beneficial effect on serum biochemistry in DDGS diet.
