Evaluation of the Effect of Probiotic Supplementation on Economics of Feeding in Broiler Rabbits

The current research was performed in broiler rabbits to examine the effects of probiotic dietary supplementation on feeding performance. At the age of 28 days, three dietary therapies were randomly and fairly allocated to 30 rabbits. Each treatment consisted, therefore of 10 rabbits. T1 as a monitor (Basal diet), T2 (Basal diet + 0.5 g probiotic) and T3 (Basal diet + 1 g probiotic) were the three dietary therapies. The total duration of experimentation lasted 8 weeks. Observations on the feeding economy of broiler rabbits have been reported. Results showed that at the 12th week the return on feed costs (Rs.) was the highest in T2 (116.1) with a mean body weight of 2.086 kg, followed by T3 (105.42) with a mean body weight of 2.067 kg compared to control group T1 (107.11) with a mean body weight of 1.964 kg. At week 12, the return on feed costs (percent) was the highest in T2 (53.35), followed by T1 (51.72) and T3 (46.79). The lowest in T2 (132.01) was the average weekly feeding cost (Rs.)/kg weight gain, followed by T3 (135.81) and T1 (142.90).
