A total of 150 turkeys i.e. 100 exotic and 50 indigenous were used for this study. Birds were allotted treatments and fed formulated grower diets that meet the NRC—Turkey grower nutritional requirements. Genomic DNA was isolated from each... Continue here

A Ten-year Retrospective Study Of Peste Des Petits Ruminantis (ppr) Cases Presented To The National Veterinary Research Institute, Vom Plateau State, Nigeria
Peste des petits ruminantis (PPR) is a severe, highly contagious disease of small ruminants, primarily sheep and goats caused by Peste des petits ruminant’s virus (PPRV). It is an important animal disease which now endangers the large populations of small ruminants in Africa, the Middle and Near East, Southwest and Central Asia. PPR is an important... Continue here

Addition Of Red Tomato Extract In Feeds Using Protein Sources And Calcium Microparticles On Protein Digestibility And Meat Production In Broiler Chickens
The study aimed to assess the effect of adding red tomato extract in feeds using protein sources and calcium microparticles on protein digestibility, meat calcium mass, meat protein mass, and meat weight in broiler chickens. Two hundred day-old broiler chicks (Cobb-CP 707) unsexed aged 8 days with an average weight of 169.19 ± 5.67 g. Red tomato extract... Continue here

Comparative Effect Of Ethanol Extract Of Moringa Oleifera Leaf And Boo-sta Plus On The Body Weight And Haematological Indices Of Wister Albino Rats
The comparative effects of ethanol extract of Moringa oleifera and  Boo-Sta Plus on the red blood cell indices and body weight of Wistar albino rats were investigated. Fortification of food is not just trending in the human diet but also in the animal diet. Boo-Sta Plus have been employed in dietary fortification to achieve better results in meat quality,...

Prolactin, Genetics, And Bioinformatics: The Trinity For Improving Duck Egg Production In Nigeria – A Review
Recently, there has been an increase in duck production in Nigeria, meaning that the products obtainable from this animal will experience a concomitant demand. This review provides a holistic review of locally adapted Mallard and Muscovy ducks in Nigeria and their viability as a complement and or replacement for chicken eggs. A brief taxonomic and evolutionary... Continue here

Restricting Conventional Feed Intake For Pasture-raised Broilers In Papua New Guinea: Effect On Growth Parameters And Carcass Yield
Using agro-industrial by-products and root crops as feed sources in broiler nutrition is gaining momentum. Yet, it is uncertain whether farmers should utilize outdoor movable pens and pasture to raise broilers. In this study, growth responses of 96 Ross strain broilers reared on pasture versus conventional rearing system were evaluated. The former involved... Continue here
