Abstract

The experiment was conducted during 5th September 17th October, 2022 (42 Days) in the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Immunology, College of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry, Central Agricultural University, Selesih, Aizawl, Mizoram, India to study the effect of feeding fermented wheat bran on blood biochemical parameter and carcass characteristics of broiler birds. Two hundred (200) numbers of day-old chicks were divided into five dietary groups with four replicates in each group. Each replicate contained 10 birds. Five dietary treatments: basal diet (Control); basal diet with Bacitracin methylene disalicylate (AGP) @ 0.5 g kg-1 of feed; basal diet with inclusion of 10% wheat bran; basal diet with inclusion of 10% fermented wheat bran; and basal diet with inclusion 15% fermented wheat bran. The feed and water were given at free choice to the birds. Fermented wheat bran was prepared by inoculating Lactobacillus fermentum using Solid-state fermentation technology.  Blood biochemical parameters like total protein, albumin, globulin, triglyceride, cholesterol, LDL and HDL did not differ significantly among the experimental groups. However, the glucose level showed significantly higher (p<0.01) at 28th and 42nd days old birds, whereas HDL was significantly (p<0.05) higher at 42nd day in AGP, FWB-10 and FWB-15 group as compared to control and WB-10 group at old birds. Therefore, it was concluded that 15% fermented wheat bran can be incorporated in the diet of  broiler chickens without any adverse affect.
