ABSTRACT

A feeding trial was conducted to compare the effect of dietary inclusion of Calopogonium Leaf Meal, Pawpaw Leaf Meal (PLM), and Centrosema Leaf Meal on the performance of finishing broilers chickens. One hundred and twenty 4 weeks old broilers were used for the study that lasted for 28 days. The birds were assigned to four dietary treatments with thirty birds per treatment in a Completely Randomized Design. Each treatment was replicated thrice. Four finisher diets were formulated containing 18% CP and 2900kcalME/kg. The Leaf Meals were incorporated at 3% in treatments 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Treatment 1 had no Leaf Meal and was used as the control diet. Results showed that the effect of treatment 4 on final body weight (1920g), total feed intake (4218.33), weight gain (1236g), daily weight gain (44.16g), were significant (P<0.05). Birds on treatment 4 had a final body weight of 1920.0g which differed significantly (P<0.05) from the 1773.3g, 1780.0g, and 1746.7g observed for birds on Treatment 1, Treatment 2, and Treatment 3 respectively.  Treatment 1 had the least cost/kg of feed (174.31Naira), while Treatment 2 had the best digestibility for ether extract (95.37), NFE (76.58), and carbohydrate (70.84). Treatment 3 had the best digestibility of crude fibre (67.64). Digestibility of protein was significant (P<0.05) in treatment 4 (91.48).
