Effects of increasing levels of sugar-beet pulp in broiler chicken diets on nutrient digestion and serum lipids

  • D. Pettersson (a1) and A. Razdan (a1)
Abstract

Broiler chickens were fed on a control diet based on maize or on diets including conventionally-dried (standard pulp) or vacuum-dried (Fipec pulp) sugar-beet pulp at inclusion levels of 23, 46 and 92 g/kg. Diets were fed ad lib. except for half of the chickens fed on the control diet which were fed twice daily at a restricted level. Although not statistically significant, chickens given the 23 g sugar-beet pulp/kg diets generally consumed more feed, had increased body weights and converted feed more efficiently at both day 14 and 21 than those fed on the control diet or diets including 46 or 92 g sugar-beet pulp/kg. Ileal digestibilities of organic matter, crude fat and crude protein generally decreased with increasing levels of sugar-beet pulp in the diet. Birds fed on diets including sugar-beet pulp had reduced total serum cholesterol concentrations. There were only minor differences obtained in production responses, serum cholesterol concentrations, digestibilities and carcass composition between chickens fed on the two types of beet pulp, indicating that the different drying procedures had very little influence on the product. High triacylglycerol and total serum cholesterol concentrations obtained for the restricted level-fed chickens demonstrated a meal frequency factor.
