Semen And Haematological Responses Of Rabbit Bucks Administered Oral Folic Acid
Some researchers have inferred that folic acid is necessary for reproduction and could enhance blood formation. Thus, a Completely Randomized Design Experiment (CRD) was conducted to evaluate the impact of oral administration of folic acid on the semen and haematological characteristics of New Zealand White rabbit bucks. The treatments designated treatment 1 (T1),... Continue here

Infection Of Gastrointestinal Parasites Among Slaughtered Cattle (bos Taurus) In Modern Abattoir, Minna, Niger State
Livestock and their products are the major source of animal protein. They also play a crucial role in the economy of most nations including Nigeria. In Nigeria, animals are mostly managed by extensive system and this predisposes them to gastrointestinal parasites. This study is aimed at determining the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of cattle slaughtered... Continue here

Fish Entrails Meal As Feed For Broilers (gallus Gallus Domesticus): Its Potential As Dietary Supplements On The Carcass Quality And Meat Organoleptic Evaluation
The main objectives of the study were to examine the nutritional value, carcass quality and meat organoleptic evaluation of broilers supplemented with fish entrails meal. Proximate analysis of fish entrails meal was analysed. Its effects on carcass weight, dressed weight and cuts-up weight were evaluated when used as supplement in the ration of broilers. For the...

In Vitro Oocysticidal Sporulation Inhibition Of Eimeria Tenella And Antioxidant Efficacy Of Ethanolic And Aqueous Extracts Of Conyza Aegyptiaca
Avian coccidiosis is probably one of the most expensive parasitic diseases with major economic impact on poultry industries worldwide. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Conyza aegyptiaca in terms of phytonutrients, in vitro oocysts sporulation inhibition and antioxidant properties. The extraction process of plant leaf... Continue here

Growth Performance, Carcass Indices And Blood Profile Of Broiler Chickens Fed Tiger Nut Residue
A total of two-hundred-and-forty day old broiler chicks were used to study the response of broiler birds to diets containing graded levels of tiger nut residue (TNR) as a replacement for maize. The diets consisted of 0, 10, 20 and 30% of TNR as a replacement for maize as T1 (control), T2, T3 and T4 respectively.  The birds were allotted to four dietary... Continue here

Coconut Water Enhances Immunity Of Cockerels Before And After Vaccination Against Newcastle Disease Virus
Coconut water contains cytokinins and lauric acid which have potentials to enhance immune response. Poor immune response after vaccination is a common problem in poultry industry. Due to this challenge, this experimental study was carried out to evaluate the effects of coconut water on cell mediated and humoral immunity in cockerel chicks. Seventy five day-old...

Genetic Polymorphism Of Myostatin (mstn) In Nigerian Sheep Breeds
Myostatin (MSTN) also known as growth differentiation factor 8 (GDF-8) has been implicated to play an important role in growth regulation, and it is a candidate gene in marker assisted selection (MAS). This study was carried out to identify the polymorphism of MSTN gene as a genetic marker for growth traits in Nigerian indigenous sheep. Genomic DNA (gDNA) was... Continue here
