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

Methods Of Treating Ruminants’ Diseases In Veterinary Hospital In Ado-ekiti, Ekiti State
The aim of this study was to investigate methods of treating ruminants’ diseases in Ekiti State. Information about the methods used in treating ruminants’ diseases were collected from a veterinary hospital in Ado-Ekiti. Major diseases that affected the ruminants include diarrhea, mange, Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR), mastitis, dystocia, uterine... Continue here

Ameliorating The Crossbred (local X Holstein Friesian) Growing Calves’ Growth Performance, Fecal Microbial Loads, And Nutrient Digestibility Upon Feeding Local Herbal Feed Additives As Supplements
There is a growing interest to researchers in human and animal studies through the addition of medicinal plants or their derivatives to their feeds due to the presence of bioactive compounds. A study was carried out to monitor growth performance, fecal microbial loads and nutrient digestibility in crossbred (Local x Holstein Friesian) growing calves. Treatment... Continue here

Incidence Of Helminthes Infestation In Small Ruminants In Three Local Government Areas Of Plateau State, Nigeria
Sheep and goats traditionally managed are usually neglected in terms of development programmes including the determination of their parasitic loads. Therefore, this study was conducted to examine the incidence of helminthes infestation in small ruminants in three Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Plateau State, Nigeria. A total of 1800 faecal samples of sheep... Continue here

Effects Of Nutrients Supply On Milk Yield, Composition, And Enteric Methane Gas Emissions From Smallholder Dairy Farms In Rwanda
This study investigated the effects of feed on milk yield and quality through feed monitoring and quality assessment, and the consequent enteric methane gas emissions from smallholder dairy farms in drier areas of Rwanda, using the Tier II approach for four seasons in three zones namely; Mayaga and peripheral Bugesera (MPB), Eastern Savanna and Central Bugesera...
