The effect of replacing Groundnut Cake (GNC) with enzyme supplemented Brewer's Dried Grains (BDG) at 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% graded levels in cockerel chicks at 6-11 weeks of age was investigated. Five dietary treatments were formulated to be isonitrogenous and isocaloric to provide 20% crude protein and 2900 kcal/kg metabolizable energy. Two hundred and twenty-five 5 weeks old cockerel chicks (Abor-Acre breed) were randomly allocated to five treatments replicated thrice with 15 cockerels per… CONTINUE READING
