Abstract
Two experiments were conducted with rosss type chicks to determine the 'Optimum substitution level 'Of CSM for GNM protein in both starter and finisher rations. ln the first experiment 500 day old broilers were used in a 42-day 5 x 2 factorial arrangement TO study: the effects of 2, 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 percent CSM and 24 Ito 26 percent protein diets 'On final body weight, rate of gain and feed efficiency. The basal diet was supplemented with metihonine to meet ARC (1975) recommended level and 0.2 percent lysine. The results indicate that up to 40 percent of GNM could be replaced with CSM without any adverse result on rate of gain final body weight and feed efficiency. Chick’s on 26 percent protein diets grew better than those on 24 percent but the differences were not statistically significant.
