Abstract:
In recent times, the scientific research has received a great concern about the use of antibiotics as growth promoter in poultry which leads to emergence of multiple drug resistance. Panchgavya, formulation of cow milk, curd, ghee, urine and dung has been claimed as growth promoter. Similarly indigenous herbs like Nigella sativa and Asparagus racemosus have been recommended as growth promoter and antibacterial. The present study was conducted to investigate growth promoter activity of Panchgavya, Nigella sativa, Asparagus racemosus and their combinations in poultry. The study was conducted on 96 healthy Narmada Nidhi day-old chicks, divided into 8 groups consisting 12 chicks with 2 replicates each. The diet of birds was supplemented with Panchgavya, Nigella sativa, Asparagus racemosus and their combinations daily for 56 consecutive days.
It may be concluded that Panchgavya, Nigella sativa, Asparagus racemosus and their combinations in dietary supplementation for 56 consecutive days improved overall growth performance in birds.
