Effect of Herbal Medicine Supplementations (Arsilvon Super, Bedgen40 and Hepa-cure Herbal Medicines) on Growth Performance, Immunity and Haematological Profile in Broilers
Advances in Zoology and Botany
The experiment was conducted at Poultry Research center University of Agriculture Faisalabad to evaluate the Arsilvon super, Bedgen40 and Hepa-Cure herbal medicines on broiler performance, immunity and hematology. For this study one hundred eighty day old broiler chicks were purchased from local hatchery and were reared in a group for one week. After one week, one hundred twenty broiler chicks of middle weight range were picked up randomly and divided into 12 experimental units (10
... ts (10 chicks/each).These units were allotted to 4 groups A, B, C, and D such that A group served as control without any supplementation, group B was supplemented with Arsilvon super @1ml/L, group C was supplemented with Bedgen40 @ 0.5ml/4L, and D was supplemented with Hepa-cure @ 1ml/L in drinking water. Supplementation of herbal medicine exhibited significant (P<0.05) effects on weight gain, Feed Conversion Ratio and non-significant effect on feed consumption (P> 0.05). Supplementation of herbal medicines showed significant treatment effect against the Newcastle disease but non-significant effect against the Infectious bursal disease. Herbal medicines revealed significant effects on blood glucose and red blood cells, but showed non-significant effect on cholesterol, hemoglobin, white blood cells and packed cell volume. In conclusion, herbal medicine supplementations in broiler revealed positive effect on performance, immunity and hematological parameters.
