Abstract: The goal of this study was to determine the effects of dietary supplementation of garlic (Allium sativum) powder (GP) and turmeric (Curcuma longa) powder (TP) as an alternative to antibiotic on production performance, biochemical parameters and economic utility of broiler chicken rearing. A total of 300 Commercial broiler chicks of Cobb-500 strain randomly divided into 5 treatment groups viz. T0 (Control), T1 (antibiotic), T2 (GP 0.5%), T3 (TP 0.5%) and T4 (GP 0.25% & TP 0.25%) having three replications consisting of 20 chicks in each. In this study, feed consumption (FC), live weight (LW) and FCR showed insignificant (P>0.05) difference among the treatments. Abdominal fat (%) significantly (P<0.05) lower in T3 group compared to control group. Significantly (P<0.05) higher dressing percentage found in T3 group compared to T0, T1 and T2 groups. Significantly (P<0.05) lower concentration of serum glucose found in T3 group compared to T0 and T1 group. Significantly (P<0.05) lower concentration of cholesterol found in all treated groups compared to control group. Total cost of production per broiler in T1 (antibiotic group) was significantly (P<0.05) highest as compared to other treated groups. Total income, net profit and BCR per bird was comparatively (P>0.05) highest in T3 group. Analyzing the above factor, the performance of T3 group was better as a replacement of antibiotic. Birds fed 0.5% turmeric powder supplemented diet achieved superior result due to turmeric has ability to increase dressing percentage, reduce abdominal fat (%), glucose, cholesterol and reduce total cost of production.
