Maheri-Sis et al [6] evaluated the effect of several feed restriction programs at different phases of age on performance and carcass yield of broiler chickens.
The fish were distributed into two weight categories ([W.sub.1] = 300 - 370 g and [W.sub.2] = 371 to 440 g) to analyze carcass yield. The chemical composition of each weight category was undertaken with fillets (n = 8) and whole eviscerated fish (n = 9).
This result may be due to the antagonism between [beta]-mannanase and the MOS or to the fact that MOS had positive effects on the intestinal mucosa and immune system, thus reducing the colonization of pathogenic bacteria and causing better productive performance and carcass yield. Similar results were obtained by WALDROUP et al.
This study evaluates the performance traits, carcass yield and prime cuts, and the intestinal morphology of broiler chickens, from 22 to 42 d of age feeding diets with increasing levels of SC, with or without enzymatic complex supplementation.
After weight of carcass, they were cut to evaluate carcass yield (excluding head, neck and feet), breast yield, thigh + drumstick yield, wing yield and back yield.
The carcass characteristics (live weight, carcass composition, and carcass yield) of SG and FG chickens are presented in Table 2.
With the completion of the experimental period, animals were slaughtered (Frigorifico Bertim), and we evaluated carcass yield (CY) expressed by dividing hot carcass weight by the respective final body weight (FBW) of each animal subjected to fasting for 16 hours.
The items of carcass characteristics measured in this study were cold carcass weight (kg), yield traits (back fat thickness, mm; M, longissimus dorci area at the 13th rib interface, [cm.sup.2]; Yield index; Yield grade, converted to numeric value: grade A = 1, B = 2, and C = 3; Frequencies of carcass yield grade, A:B:C, %) and quality traits (marbling score, 9 = the most abundant, 1 = devoid; meat color, 7 = dark red, 1 = bright; fat color, 7 = yellowish, 1 = white; texture, 3 = coarse, 1 = fine; maturity, 9 = mature, 1 = youthful; quality grade, converted to numeric value, grade [1.sup.++] = 1, [1.sup.+] = 2, 1 = 3, 2 = 4, and 3 = 5; frequencies of carcass quality grade, [1.sup.++]:[1.sup.+]:1:2, %; dressing percentage, %).
