The aim of this research was to study percentage carcass and commercial cut of broiler fed diet containing screened or unscreened palm kernel meal (PKM). Two hundred day old chicks (DOC) of broiler strain Hubbard were used and kept for 35 days. The diet treatments were R1 = diet containing unscreened PKM, R2 = diet containing screened PKM, R3 = diet containing screened PKM plus shell of PKM as grit, and R4 = diet containing screened plus commercial grit in completely randomized design with four treatments and four replications. Water and diet were given ad libitum. The results showed that there were significantly different (P<0.05) among treatments on the final body weight and carcass weight where broiler fed R1 and R4 were higher body weight and carcass weight than those broiler fed R2 and R3. Percentage carcass, commercial cut and abdominal fat were not significantly different all on all PKM diets. It was concluded that screening PKM did not affect percentage carcass and commercial cut of broiler.
