The present investigation was conducted to carry out a comparative study on native and crossbreed cow urine distillate on carcass characteristics and meat quality of broilers. Eighty, day old broiler chicks were randomly assigned into four groups with twenty birds in each group and were acclimatized for four days before the start of cow urine distillate supplementation. Control group T-1 was given drinking water without cow urine distillate, while groups T-2, T-3 and T-4 were provided drinking water mixed with cow urine distillate of Ongole, Sahiwal and Holstein Friesian (H.F) crossbred, respectively @10ml/liter. Six birds from each group were randomly selected and slaughtered on 42nd day for which carcass characteristics and meat quality parameters were recorded. The dressing percentage, heart weight, gizzard weight and various cut up parts viz., wings, thighs, neck, back and breast were not influenced by CUD supplementation. The liver weight was significantly increased in groups T-2 and T-3 compared to T-1 and T-4, whereas percent drumstick yield was significantly higher in group given Ongole CUD (T-2) compared to other groups. However, the meat parameters i.e. meat pH and ERV showed no significant difference among various groups.
