However, no information is available regarding the effect of adding NCLI and MCLI to broiler diets on the intestinal morphology.
The dietary treatments were: i) basal diet, ii) basal diet+2% NCLI, iii) basal diet+2% MCLI.
Effects of NCLI (2%) and MCLI (2%) on the growth performance of broilers
In the present study, the results presented in Table 2 show that adding NCLI and MCLI to the diets of broilers fro m 1 to 42 d of age produced no significant differences in terms of BWG, F/G.
Effects of NCLI and MCLI on the relative length, weights of intestine and morphology (^m) of intestinal mucosa in broilers
The effects of dietary NCLI and MCLI on the relative length and weight of small intestine in broilers are shown in Table 3.
During the overall experimental period the villus height in the jejunal mucosa in the MCLI group were higher (p<0.
The present study showed change in the relative weight of the jejunum in birds fed with NCLI or MCLI supplemented diet (p<0.
