The present experiment was conducted on 420 commercial day old (Vencobb-400) broiler chicks up to 42 days to evaluate the effect of feeding corn distillers dried grains with solubles (cDDGS) and enzyme supplementation on performance of broiler chicken. The birds in control group (A) offered basal diet adequate in all nutrients as per BIS (2007). The birds in dietary treatment groups B, C and D were offered diet containing cDDGS at 5, 10 and 15% level and birds in groups E, F and G were offered diet cDDGS at 5, 10, and 15% level with multienzyme (DSM, Mumbai), respectively. All the diets were isocaloric and iso-nitrogenous. At 6th week of age, the body weight and cumulative weight gain were significantly (P<0.01) higher in treatment groups B and E having 5% cDDGS with or without multienzyme than all other groups. The inclusion of 5 % cDDGS with or without multienzyme was observed significantly (P<0.05) higher feed intake than all treatment groups, except treatment group F (10% cDDGS with multienzyme). The significantly increased (P<0.05) feed conversion ratio (FCR) in treatment group D (15% cDDGS) was observed as compared to control group. The FCR was numerically better in groups having 5% cDDGS with or without multienzyme as compared to control group. The cost of production rupees per kg live weight in all groups A to G was 67.98, 65.77, 67.81, 68.59, 65.47, 67.36 and 67.92, respectively. The highest net profit in terms of rupees per kg live weight was observed in treatment groups E followed by B, F, C, G, A and D. The results of the present experiment suggested that the inclusion of cDDGS at 5 and 10% levels in broiler diets was found to be beneficial. Moreover, the inclusion of cDDGS at 5% level with supplementation of multienzyme was found to be more beneficial in terms of growth performance and economics of broiler production.
