Effect of feeding back soldier fly larvae meal on immune response and serum biochemistry profile in broilers

Author(s): Dakshith PL, HC Indresh, TN Krishnamurthy and BN Suresh
Abstract: Poultry sector is the largest amongst the livestock sector. Feed quality is very important to sustain a profitable poultry business while lack of conventional protein sources is a major problem being faced by the poultry industry. Insects are the natural diet of poultry as birds with access to outdoors pick up insects and eat them. This study was conducted to study the effect of feeding Black soldier fly larvae meal on immune response and serum biochemistry profile in broilers. Four treatment groups T1, T2, T3 and T4 with three replicates each containing ten birds were made and T1, T2, T3 and T4 were fed with control diet, diet with 5% black soldier fly larvae meal, 10% black soldier fly larvae meal and 15% black soldier fly larvae meal, respectively. At the end of the experiment the results showed that inclusion of black soldier fly larvae meal had no significant difference on immune titres against Newcastle and Infectious bursal disease, immune organ weight and serum biochemistry profile in comparison to control stating that black soldier fly larvae meal can be included in poultry without affecting immune response and serum biochemistry profile.
