Effective use of Palm Products/By-Products as Fat Energy in Boiler Feeding

OSMAN Atil *, RAMLAH Hamid **

Malaysia is the world’s leader and most efficient producer of palm oil and palm oil products. Palm oil and its products are classified as high energy feed which are technically and economically feasible to be used as partial replacement for corn in broiler feed. Every unit of palm oil and its components used in the ration can replace two units of corn. Thus, 10% of palm oil products added to the feed, will provide energy equivalent to 20% of the corn in its formulation.
