Abstract

In the article, results of researches on an establishment of an optimum source of Zinc are resulted. Zinc was additionally added mixed fodder for quails grown for meat. In the research laboratory of feed additives National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine carried out the experiment. In accordance with to the scheme of the experiment were selected of 300 daily quails. Were formed three groups control and two experimental, 100 quails (50 females and 50 males) in each. Quails of the first group fed zinc sulfate, the second group zinc glycinate, the third group zinc citrate. Were studied indicators of growth, safety and the cost of feed per 1 kg increase in body weight daily quails ages 135 depending on the source of zinc in the mixed fodders. It was found that more feed consumed quail, which was added to the mixed feeds of organic sources of Zinc. On this indicator, they dominated the control by 1.81.9%. The preservation of quails was quite high in the experimental groups and did not depend on the source of Zinc. Additional introduction of organic sources Zinc increases the final body weight by 1.81.6% (P < 0.05). The lowest feed costs per 1 kg of body weight gain were in quail, which included Zinc glycinate in the mixed fodder composition. The relationship between the cost of feed and fodder source of zinc (y = 0.011x2 – 0.037x + 3.147, R² = 1)
