Abstract
Eighteen four weeks’ old weaned Broiler rabbits of comparable body weights were allotted to three
dietary treatment groups of six rabbits in each group namely T0 (basal control diet, T1 (basal diet
added with Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Rhizoid Powder, TRP, at the ratio of 150mg) and T2 ( basal
diet added with TRP at the ratio of 300mg/100g diet). Feeding cum growth trial and digestion trial
were during summer months of April, May and June to study voluntary feed intake, growth rate and
nutrient utilization by the experimental animals. TRP included in the diets of experimental groups
consisting 6.72 % CP, 5.04% ether extract, 3.96% crude fibre, 7.85% total ash. Depression in
voluntary feed intake due to summer stress did not alter due to the inclusion of turmeric powder. The
weekly mean body weight gain, feed conversion efficiency and digestibility of nutrients did not show
significant difference by the supplementation of turmeric rhizome powder in the diets of rabbit in
present study.

Key words: Summer stress, Turmeric, Curcumin, Antioxidant, Rabbit, Nutrient, Digestibility, Growth performance.
