Abstract

Heat stress conditions can affect the decline in antioxidant production in the body, health condition and cause cell damage. The content of Mauritia flexuosa L. as an antioxidant can reduce the detrimental effects of heat stress. This study aims to determine the effect of Mauritia flexuosa L. on carcass weight and digestive organs of broilers exposed to heat stress. A total of 20 broilers aged 22-35 days were kept in individual cages. Broilers in the treatment group were given heat stress induction at a temperature of 35 ± 1°C. Broilers were randomly selected in 4 treatment groups divided into K- (normal temperature + complete feed), K + (heat exposure + complete feed), P1 (heat exposure + complete feed + Mauritia flexuosa L.2% of total feed gr / head / day) and P2 (heat exposure + complete feed + Mauritia flexuosa L.4% of total feed gr / head /day). This experiment was studied for 35 days and tested for normality using analysis of variance with a significance level (p <0.05). The results showed a significant difference in the carcass weight, but not significantly different from the weight of the broiler digestive organs.
