    Abstract

    Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of Garcinia cambogia leaf meal supplementation levels at finisher stage on productivity and juiciness of male Ross 308 broiler chickens. The design of the experiments was a completely randomised design. The first experiment examined the effect of level of Garcinia cambogia leaf meal supplementation at finisher stage (29 to 42 days of age) on productivity and carcass characteristics of male Ross 308 broiler chickens. Level of Garcinia cambogia leaf supplementation had no effect (p>0.05) on feed intake, growth rate, feed conversion ratio, live weight, blood glucose, blood urea and carcass characteristics of male broiler chickens. However, daily supplementation with 300 mg of Garcinia cambogia leaf meal per kg DM feed reduced (p<0.05) fat pad weight by 18.75% in broiler chickens. This could not be explained in terms of differences in feed intake, digestibility, or growth rate. The second experiment examined the effect of Garcinia cambogia leaf meal supplementation interval on juiciness of Ross 308 broiler chickens. Garcinia cambogia leaf meal supplementation interval had no effect (p>0.05) on meat flavour of male Ross 308 broiler chicken meat. However, daily supplementation with 300 mg of Garcinia cambogia leaf meal reduced (p<0.05) juiciness of male Ross 308 broiler chicken meat by 40%.
