THE SUPPLEMENTATION EFFECT OF PROBIO FMPLUS AS SYMBIOTIC IN LIQUID AND SOLID FORMS ON THE BROILER CARCASS QUALITYHelda, Andy Y. Ninu and Catootjie L. Nalle
Probio FM plus is asymbiotic probiotic product made of a number of Lactobacillus sp. bacteria multiplied inmixture sago (putak) meal and lontar liquid sugar (nira lontar) as prebiotics. This product which was produced through a research collaboration (MP3EI scheme) between Polytechnic of Agriculture Kupang and Jambi University, but has not been evaluated for its effectiveness. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of Probiotic FMplus in liquid and solid forms on the quality of broiler carcass. In this study, a total of 160 unsexed broiler chicks were housed in floor pens from day 1 to 42 post-hatch. The experiment was designed by using a completely randomized design with four treatments and four replications. The treatments were R0 (control), R1 (Probio FMplus5 mL/L drinking water), R2 (Probio FMplus5 g/kg commercial diets),and R3 (combination Probio FMplus5 mL/L drinking water and 5 g/kg commercial diets). The commercial diets were offered ad libitum in crumble form to four replicate cages of broilers (10 birds/pen) from during 42d experiment. The samples taken for carcass weight, carcass yield, and carcass quality measurement was 3 birds/replicate. There sults showed that significant differences (P<0.05) were observed in carcass weight,meat colour, and abdominal fat. No significant differences (P>0.05) were found in carcass yield, water holding capacity, pH and cooking loss. Birds given Probio FMplus produced lighter carcass colour (P<0.05) compared to those receiving no Probio FMplus. The abdominal fat of birds received Probio FMplus was relatively lower(P<0.05) compared to those in control treatment (no Probio FMplus). In summary supplementation with Probio FMplus through drinking water or feed or in combination resulted in higher carcass weight, and hada little influence on carcass quality (the abdominal fat and meat colour).
