Abstract: The trial was conducted to evaluate the translatability and reproducibility of performance efficacy of Kolin Plus in broiler chickens under field conditions. Studies were conducted in eight different commercial broiler farms across India. Farms were randomly designated as synthetic choline chloride (SCC) and Kolin Plus (KP) groups were raised on commercial broiler feed supplemented with SCC at 1000 g/ton and KP at 400 g/ton of feed respectively. At the end of the trial, performance parameters viz. body weight and feed conversion ratio (FCR) were evaluated. Overall the outcomes of the eight commercial field trial depicted that the performance traits of KP (400 g/ton) supplemented farms was at par with that of SCC (1000 g/ton) supplemented farms. In conclusion, the results of this commercial trial on translatability and reproducibility of in-vivo performance efficacy of Kolin Plus under field conditions, further strengthen the confidence levels to replace the 1000 g/ton of SCC with 400 g/ton of Kolin Plus in the poultry farmer/clients.
