- The study aims to control Salmonellosis through the addition of Z. zerumbet extract in broilers feed. The experiment consisted of 5 treatments namely, T0 (standard diet), T1 (standard diet + infection of S. enteritidis), T2 (standard diet + infection of S. enteritidis + 0.33% Z. zerumbet extract), T3 (standard diet + infection of S. enteritidis + 0.67% Z. zerumbet extract), and T4 (standard diet + infection of S. enteritidis + 1% Z. zerumbet extract). Each treatment was repeated five times. The parameters measured were the number of S. enteritidis colonies, small intestinal morphology, and digestive enzymes activity. The results showed that no S. enteritidis colonies were found in T3 and T4 treatments, whereas T2, T3 and T4 had a high ratio of villi / Liberkuhn crypt depth and higher enzyme activity as compared to that of T1. It was concluded that the addition of Z. zerumbet extract at a concentration of 0.67% to 1% has the potential as a feed additive for controlling Salmonellosis in broiler chickens. Thus, the extract can replace AGP as a feed additive that is safe for the health of broilers as well as humans as the consumers.
