Abstract

To explore the possibility of utilization of locally available teed material like sorghum, bajra
and safflower cake, an experiment was conducted on 240 day-old Vencob broiler chicks for 6 weeks
by distributing them randomly in eight uniform groups with three replications of ten chicks each. The
maize of control diet was replaced by equal proportion of jowar and bajra each at 33% levels. The
soybean meal and GNC were replaced at 3.5 and 7.0% and at 5.0 and 8.0% level, respectively by
safflower cake. The iso-caloric and iso-nitrogenous starter and finisher rations were formulated.
The weekly body weights and feed consumption by the birds fed with replacement of maize by jowar
and bajra each at 33% levels and SBM as sole protein source were significantly more (P < 0.05)
than other treatments including control. However, feed efficiency ratio was not efficient with sole
GNC and without maize feeding. The proximate composition revealed that CP was more in sorghum
and bajra than maize diets whereas CF, NFE and ME were higher in maize
