Abstract:

This research aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a Commercial Herbal Formulation in preventing Coccidiosis under natural exposure to Eimeria species in an Animal Production Teaching and Research Farm from March to May 2020. The study involved 180-day-old broiler chicks randomly divided into three treatment groups (T1, T2, and T3) using a completely randomized design with three replicates, each containing 20 birds.

Treatment one (T1) received Ruchamax at a rate of 15g in water, treatment two (T2) was administered amprolium at 100g, and treatment three (T3) served as the control group. Data on weight gain, carcass characteristics, feed intake, feed conversion ratio, nutrient digestibility, and hematological parameters were collected and analyzed using SPSS statistical software.

Results indicated that there were no significant differences in carcass characteristics, nutrient retention, and weight gain among the treatment groups (p>0.05). However, hematological indices showed significant differences (p<0.05) between the treatment groups. The serum parameters between the treatments did not show significant differences.

Furthermore, the analysis of fecal samples revealed that Ruchamax effectively reduced the level of coccidiosis infection over the weeks. Consequently, it was concluded that Ruchamax demonstrated safety and efficacy as an anticoccidial agent. Notably, the weekly coccidiosis results showed that 15g of Ruchamax produced comparable outcomes to amprolium in controlling and preventing coccidiosis in broiler chickens.
