Abstract

The research to find out the response of broiler consuming sweet potato leaves meal (Ipomoea batatas) on live weight, carcass weight and pigmentation of carcass skin was conducted at Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Padjadjaran University and Mekar Pawitan village, Paseh sub district, Bandung Regency for five weeks. The experiment design was a completely randomized using 125 day old chick. The birds were placed randomly into twenty five cages. The treatments were ration without sweet potato leaves meal (R0) and ration containing sweet potato leaves meal 5% (R1), 10% (R2), 15% (R3) and 20% (R4). The ration and water were given ad libitum. The data analyzed by analysis of variance and Duncan's multiple range test (live weight and carcass weight) and Kruskal-Wallis Test (pigmentation of carcass skin). The parameters were live weight, carcass weight and pigmentation of carcass skin. The result indicated that use of sweet potato leaves meal up to 5% had similar live weight, carcass weight and pigmentation of carcass skin to those of control. Keywords : sweet potato leaves, ration, carcass, broiler
