AbstractThe study was conducted on poultry farm, which belonged to the Dept. of Animal production college of Agriculture, AL-Anbar University in alternate location at Abo-Graib, Baghdad, during the period from 10 March 2016 to 21 April 2016. The aim of the study was to show The effect of using different types of vegetable oils (Canola, Olive and sunflower) in broiler the diet on productive of broiler.192 one day old non sexed of Ross 308 breed chicks were used in this study.
The average weight of the chicks were 37 gm. The chicks were distributed randomly into four treated groups with four replication for each group (48 chicks for each treatment) .The 1st treatment regarded as a control group and given a standard diet without any addition (T1). The 2nd treatment (T2) added Canola oil. The 3nd treatment (T3) added Olive oil. While the 4th treatment (T4) added Sunflower oil. The percentage of addition of oils were 0.5% of the starter diet, 1% for the growth diet and 1.5% for the finisher diet. Chicks were fed at the starter diet for 10 days, 11-24 days at the growth diet and 25-42 days at the final diet. The results of the study showed as followed: A high significant body weight (P≤ 0.05) and (P≤ 0.01) were observed in all treated groups using T2, T3 and T4, using Oil respectively. The increase started from the 2nd week to the end of the experiment as compared with the control group. There was no significant difference in feed consumption between different treatments. Food conversion efficiency was observed more in T2 and T3 as compared with T1 and T4. There was no significant difference in mortality rate between different treated groups.
