Abstract

This study was carried out to determine comparatively the effects of different dietary vegetable oils and tallow on body weight gain, feed consumption, feed conversion ratio and on cost efficiency in broilers. Four different fats (sunflower oil, corn oil, soybean oil and tallow) were supplemented to diets at a level of 6%. Diets were fed to 360 male-female mixed Ross 308 broilers divided into four groups containing 90 chicks each.
