Abstract


This study was conducted to determine the effect of probiotic Enterococcus faecium DSM 7134 feed supplementation on animal performance of broilers poultry when compared to control animals. The determination of lipid status parameters on day 51 was performed on 5 chicks randomly selected in each group.. Biochemical analyzes included total cholesterol, triglycerides, high density lipoproteins (HDL) and low density lipoproteins (LDL). Individual live weight, consumption index and mortality rate were measured at the end of the rearing phases. The results obtained showed that the addition of Enterococcus faecium significantly improved live weight throughout the rearing period without significant charge on FCR and mortality rate. The experimental group had significantly higher cholesterol, triglyceride and HDL levels.
