Abstract


The business of raising broilers is one of the biggest contributors to meet people's needs for animal protein. About 70% of production costs are spent by feed. Carrots are one of the potential and multi-use horticultural commodities in livestock as a feed source. In this paper, the first variable that we will adopt is Average Daily Gain (ADG) in broiler chickens. Then the second variable is the juice of carrot tuber (Daucus carota L.). Responding to these problems, the authors propose an idea to find alternative feeds to enlarge ADG in broiler chickens. The procedure of the study is a 100 broiler chickens (since the age of 1 day) during the first week intensively maintained at the brooder cage. In the second week then divided into 5 groups, consisting of 1 control group and 4 treatment groups each replicating 20 chickens by randomization according to treatment. The conversion calculation of the dose of carrot administration is 17.5 ml/head/day.
