An experiment was conducted in order to study the effect of different substitution levels of extruded (ESB) with soybean meal (SBM) and two dietary vitamin E levels on production index and economic traits of broilers. 264 Cobb 500 day-old chicks of either sex were distributed among 24 groups of 11 chicks per each experiment was exerted as a 4×2 factorial arrangement (4 substitution levels of ESB with SBM: 0, 25, 50 and 75 % and two dietary levels of vitamin E, 42 and 75 IU/Kg) with three replicates in a completely randomized design (CRD). The results showed that different substitution levels had no significant effect on production index at 28 and 42 days of age (P>0.05). However recommended levels of vitamin E significantly improved production index at 28 days of age (P<0.05). The interaction effect of different substitution level of ESB with SBM and vitamin E supplement on feed cost at 28 days and feed cost per live weight gain at 28 and 42 days was significant (P<0.05). As increases each of them increased costs. Monetary return at 42 days of age was significant (P<0.05) and increase of monetary return was showed. It can be said that different substitution levels of ESB with SBM plus higher level of dietary vitamin E had not any negative effect on economic status and production index of broilers.
