Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Poultry Research and Training Center of Sardar Vallbhbhai Patel University of Agriculture and Technology Modipuram Meerut to determine effect of dietary dried rumen digesta (DRD) on carcass characteristics and serum constituents of broilers. A total 300 day old (Cobb- 400) divided into five experimental groups viz., T1 (basal ration without DRD), T2 (basal ration plus 5 % DRD), T3 (basal ration plus 10% DRD), T4 (basal ration plus 15 % DRD) and T5 (basal ration plus 20 % DRD) with three replications and each replication had 20 chicks. The blood biochemical parameters investigated are viz., total protein, glucose, HDL, LDL and calcium and carcass characteristics namely; eviscerated weight, carcass weight, Giblet weight and dressing percentage. Results showed that 20 per cent DRD significantly improved carcass quality and dressing percentage as well as serum biochemistry of broilers. Therefore, it can be concluded that DRD used for better carcass quality and maintained normal physiological responses.
