Application of Noni Fruit (Morinda citrifolia L.) Extract with Cu and Zn Supplemented in the Ration on Performance Chicken Sentul of Phase Developer

Noni fruit is a herbal plant that has the potential to be used as additional feed to replace Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGP) and contains bioactive compounds that can increase the absorption of nutrients in the digestive tract. The study aims to determine the effect of adding noni extract with Cu and Zn supplemented in the ration on the performance of Sentul chicken in the developer phase. The research used an experiment method, using 40 female Sentul chickens aged 16 weeks and maintained until 24 weeks of age. The study used an experimental method with an experimental design used was a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The treatments consisted of P0 = basal ration, P1= basal ration + 0.3%/kg noni fruit extract supplemented with Cu and Zn (ENFm), P2 basal ration + 0.6% /kg ENFm, P3 = basal ration + 0.9% / kg ENFm, P4 = basal ration + 1.2%/kg ENFm. Each treatment was repeated four times, and each repetition consisted of 2 Sentul chickens. The results showed that the P3 (0.9 ENFm) treatment had an influence on body weight gain and feed conversion but did not affect feed consumption and age of sexual maturity, and the addition of 0.6% (P2) level in the ratio could be the best performance on early production of chicken Sentul. This shows that ENFm products can be used as feed additives in Sentul chickens to replace an Antibiotic Growth Promoter (AGP) role.
