Abstract

Most of consumers prefer to buy broiler with around one and a half kg of body weight in order to reduce expenses and fat consumption. In this study broiler chicks were given commercial diet composed of corn, soybean and fish meal, rice bran, dicalcium phosphate, vitamins and minerals mixture (premix) and palm oil. The diet contained approximately 20.33 % crude protein and 3100 Kcal/kg metabolizable energy The garlic meal was mixed into the diet according to the treatments i.e P1 (0 %), P2 (0.02%), P3 (0.04 %), P4 (0.08 %) and P5 (0.16 %). The results showed that the total feed intake of P1 (3,004.7 g) was significantly (P<0.05) higher than that of P2 (2.558 g), P3 (2.669 g), P4 (2.669 g) and P5 (2.700 g). Broiler of P2 reached 1.5 kg of body weight within 35 days, significantly (P<0,01) faster than taht of P1 (40 days) and significantly (P< 0.05) faster than that of P3 (36 days), P4 (38 days), and P5 (37 days). The feed conversion of P1 (1.98) was significantly higher (P<0.05) than those of P1 (1.68) P3 (1.76), P4 (1.76) and P5 (1.78). The Income over Feed and Chick Cost was Rp.1.288.81 (P1); Rp 2.340.58 (P2); Rp 2.050.59 (P3); Rp 1.954.52 (P4 ) dan Rp 1.847.92 (P5). On the insis of the economic analysis result may be drawn that garlic meat treatment of P2 (0,02%) showed as the best result. Keywords: garlic, broiler, body weight
