Abstract:
Commercial laying hens (Babcock) 174-weeks old, were given feed containing 1, 2 and 3% EM4 for a period of 12 weeks EM4 ded not influence live body weight. Egg production was greater in birds given feed containing 1 and 2% EM 4 but lower in birds given feed containing 3% EM4 than the control birds. Blood glucose was significantly lesser in birds given feed containing 3% EM4 than the control birds (p<0.01). serum total proteins, serum albumin, serum globulins, serum total lipids and serum cholesterol were not influenced significantly with the EM 4 treatment. The study suggests that EM4 is a safe product for laying birds it increases egg production when mixed in feed.
