  1. The broilers were fed: (1) a corn-soybean based diet (Control); (2) the based diet plus 10 % C. vulgaris (CH); (3) diet 2 supplemented with 0.005 % Rovabio® Excel AP; and (4) diet 2 supplemented with 0.01 % of a pre-selected four-CAZyme mixture (CHM)
  2. SEM - standard error of the mean; ADFI - average daily feed intake; ADG - average daily weight gain; FCR - feed conversion ratio
