4.    Beneficial effects of Superliv DS and Xlivpro on growth promotion and carcass quality traits in broilers - R. K. Sharma, S. Maini and K. Ravikanth
Vet World. 2008; 1(12): 363-365


An experimental study in 180 day-old broiler chicks was conducted to evaluate efficacy of herbal liver tonic & growth promoter products on overall growth, performance and carcass quality parameters. Day old chicks were randomly divided into three groups, control group I was given no treatment while group II & III were administered herbal liver tonic & growth promoter products Superliv DS & Xlivpro respectively, from 0 to 6 weeks. A significant (P<0.05) improvement in growth performance traits was observed in treated groups. The results also indicated significant (P<0.05) and notable improvement in livability, overall carcass yield & carcass quality parameters. The administration of polyherbal liver tonic formulations enhanced nutrient utilization and boosted overall economy of broiler raising by reducing mortality, increasing livability & carcass quality.
