In this research, it was conducted with the effects of dried apple pomace (DAP) in broiler chicken diets on their fattening performance. A total of 96 one day-old Ross-508 broiler chicks in both sexes were used in this trial. All the birds were randomly distributed into 4 replicates groups which were fed ad-libitum with diets (22.06% CP and 3012 kcal/kg ME starter diets for 0-3 weeks of age and 19.71% CP and 3125 kcal/kg ME finisher diets for 4-6 weeks of age) containing different levels of DAP as follows: 0% ( control), 5%, 10% and 15%, respectively. In conclusion it was suggested that DAP can be used as a feed ingredient in broiler chicken diets with a level of 5%.
