Significance of the Study
Broilers are the common breed of chicken that is of meat purposes. Broiler meat is the cheapest source of protein for Filipino diet. It supports the economic stability of the Filipino for it adds to the country’ economic income and gives money for the demand of poultry has been a worldwide phenomenon.
Chicken manures can also be utilized as fertilizers. The poultry uses are easy to build. Chickens are raise in a very short period of time, but still the demand for the poultry product is not meet. Some farmers do not engage in this type of business for they think it is not that profitable and lack of knowledge when engage to this venture might make the project unsuccessful.
Feeds of different composition studied to have a very big role in the growth performance of the poultry products. As to what survey gathered most of the inputs in production for poultry products almost 80% is to the feeds.
On the other hand, banana is a herbaceous plant grown tropically.Bananas contains potassium, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, Vitamin’s A,B and C, thiamin, niacin, copper, panthothenic acid and zinc. The effectiveness of potassium-rich foods such as bananas in lowering blood opressure has been demonstrated by a number of studies. Bananas are in an exceptionally rich source of fructooligosaccharide, a compound called a prebiotic because it nourishes probiotic (friendly) bacteria in the colon. These beneficial bacteria produce vitamins and digestive enzymes that improve our ability to absorb nutrients, plus compounds that protect us against unfriendly microorganisms. It is considered as food for the wise people.
In this study, the researcher intends to utilize banana pulp as a supplement to the broiler ration considering the cost of feeds in broiler production.
Objectives of the Study
1. To determine the performance of the Broiler fed with different levels of dried banana pulp in the growth performance of the broiler. 2. To assess the cost of producing a kilogram body weight. 3. To determine the cost and return analysis.
Expected Output of the Study
Determined what brand of feeds can gave optimum weight and feed conversion efficiency of broiler chickens.
Place and duration of the Study
This study will be conducted in Lugan III Village Poblacion, Tboli ,South Cotabato in the researches place from November to December of 2010.
Review of Related Literature
Broilers have been proven their ability to perform well in all situations meeting the needs of customers in both independent and integrated sectors. It has well-balanced characteristics’ and high meat yielding those results to a bird universally accepted in all markets (Primary Poultry Breeders2003).
Feeds are the biggest item in the cost of producing animals. It is around 65% in poultry, the animal husbandry must pay attention to the quality of feed used in and the system of feeding (Cocjin, 1990). Jull (1981) stated that the growth rate if broiler is the most important factor affecting the efficiency of utilization. Reddy (1996) added that broiler live weight increase with...
