Growth and Carcass Characteristic in Kampong x Broiler Crossbred Divergently Selected for Unsaturated Fatty Acid
MetadataShow full item record
Unsaturated fatty acid is one of the group fatty acid composition which is important for human health. The objective of this study was to identify the growth and carcass characteristic in Kampong x Broiler crossbred chicken in divergent unsaturated fatty acid. The highest unsaturated fatty acid were devide into to two group (high and low), where high dan low sample had value were 58.87% and 50.43% respectively. The data were analyse using t-test to observe carcass characteristic between high and low unsaturated fatty acid. The result showed there were not significantly (P>0.05) differences in growth (body weight) and carcass characteristic (carcass weight, breast muscle weight, and leg muscle weight) between to selected group. Divergent selection base on unsaturated in Kampong x Broiler crossbred chicken could provide a usefull model for genetics studies of fatty acid content related trait.
