Efeitos da inclusão de farelo do resíduo de manga no desempenho de frangos de corte de 1 a 42 dias


An experiment was carried out to evaluate the use of residue mango (Mangifera indica L., var. Uba) meal (RMM) in diets of broiler chickens from 1 to 42 days old. A total of 600 male Ross chicks were distributed to a completely randomized design, with 5 diets and with 6 repetitions of 20 birds each. Diets consisted of the inclusion of 0.0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5 and 10.0% of RMM in diets based on corn and soybean meal. Feed consumption, average daily weight gain, feed conversion ratio and productive efficiency index were evaluated. In the period from 1 to 42 days, there was no effect of RMM levels in feed consumption. Average daily weight gain and feed conversion ratio was not also affected by inclusion of 2.5 and 5.0% of RMM in the diet. The inclusion up to 5% of residue of mango meal in the diet did not affect the performance of chickens in the period from 1 to 42 days old.
