Abstract: To evaluate the efficiency of Canol meal on grwoth performance of Broiler, an experimental study was carried out at the Poultry Experiment Station, Department of Animal Nutrition, Sindh Agriculture University, Tandojam during May-June 2001. 200 Arboracer broilers were equally arranged as T1, T2 T3, T4 and T5 fed with the rations containing 0, 10, 15, 20 and 25% canola meal, respectively. The rations were formulated according to indigenous farming system of Pakistna. Five Iso-nitrogenous and Iso-calroic rations were prepared at a level of 20% CP and 3000 Kcl/Kg energy, with a view to establish the optimum level of canola meal in the broiler ration. The average weight gain in T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 was 1772.97, 1789.80, 1811.13, 1921.78 and 1882.69g, dressing % 61.77, 61.44, 60.85, 62.99 and 62.75, feed consumption was 3923.42,3933.13, 3887.45, 3985.29 and 3882.18g and feed efficiency 2.21, 2.19, 2.14, 2.07 and 2.06 respectively. For these paramenters T4 was significantly (P<0.01) superior over rest of the treatments. No significant differences were observed among the groups for internal organs i.e., liver, heart and gizzard weight. The study concludes that broiler ration with 20% canola meal proved more beneficial and economical.
