ABSTRACT

The purpose of the research to evaluate the combination of gembili tubers with Lactobacillus plantarum (CGLp) on the performance, carcass, hematological parameters, and gut microflora of broiler chickens. The research used 144 one-day-old broiler chicks (44.33±1.09 g). The research was conducted with a completely randomized design. The treatments included of T0: diet + 0% CGLp (control), T1: diet + CGLp 1.0%, T2: diet + CGLp 1.5%, T3: diet + CGLp 2.0%, T4: diet + CGLp 2.5% and T5: diet + CGLp 3.0%. The treatment of CGLp was significantly increased (p <0.05) of body weight gain, live body weight, carcass percentage, meat protein content and lactic acid bacteria. The treatment decreased (p<0.05) of feed conversion ratio (FCR), meat fat content, meat cholesterol and total coliform in the ileum and caecum. The treatments of CGLp were not affected (p> 0.05) of feed intake, immune organs, hematological and pH in the ileum and caecum. In conclusion, the CGLp treatments improve the performance, carcass, and gut microflora of broiler chickens.
