Effect of Dietary Supplementation of Yellow Mustard Seed Powder and Mango Leaf Powder on Production Performance of Commercial Layers
Keywords: Egg Production, Feed Conversion Ratio, Feed Intake, Yellow Mustard Seed Powder, White Leghorn Layers.
AbstractThe study was carried out to discern the effect of incorporating yellow mustard seed powder in diet on production performance, nutrient utilization, and egg quality of commercial laying hens. Ninety White leghorn Laying hens of 18 week were randomly distributed into three treatment groups with 30 birds per treatment with three replicates each and were subjected to feeding experiment. Hens of T1(control) group were fed with basal diet, whereas in T2 group yellow mustard seed powder @ 0.5% and in T3 group combination of mango leaf powder (0.25%) and yellow mustard seed powder (0.25%) was supplemented. Inclusion of yellow mustard seed powder in diets of layer birds significantly decreased feed intake (p ≤ 0.05), egg production (p ≤ 0.05), FCR (p ≤ 0.05) and body weight (p ≤ 0.01). Highly significant difference (p ≤ 0.01) was observed in dry matter utilization, egg weight, egg NFE while significant difference (p ≤ 0.05) was observed in feed crude protein, ether extract, NFE, glucosinolate, crude protein utilization, organic matter utilization, egg shape index, egg shell thickness, egg ether extract, egg Ca and P and egg triglyceride
