Haematology, Blood Viscosity And Osmotic Fragility Of Finisher Broiler Chickens Fed Dietary Supplementation Of Acetylsalicylic Acid During Hot Dry Season
The effect of acetylsalicylic acid on the haematological status, blood viscosity and osmotic fragility of broiler chickens were evaluated during transition from dry to rainy season (January – March). One hundred and ninety two (192) day old broiler chicks (ANAK) were randomly divided into four dietary treatments, each treatment comprising 48 birds, which was... Continue here

Quantitative Feed Restriction Effects On Morphometric Traits And Body Weight Of White Cockerels
The study was carried out to determine the effect of a skip-a-day type of feed restriction on growth performance, of white cockerels. A total of eighty-four day-old chicks of white cockerels were used. There were four treatment groups replicated thrice: Treatment 1:  Control treatment (Fed full for the entire period of the study); Treatment 2: ... Continue here

Economic Analysis Of Broiler Chicken Diet Containing Graded Levels Of Sun-dried Cassava (manihot Esculenta Cartz) Root Meal
An experiment was conducted at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Research Farm, Bauchi, to determine the replacement value of sun-dried cassava (Manihot esculenta cart) root meal (SDCRM) for maize in broiler diets. Five diets were formulated in which SDCRM was incorporated in the diet to replace maize at 0%, 20%, 30%, 40%, and 50% levels designated as diet 1,... Continue here

Serological Survey And Risk Factors For Coxiella Burnetii Infection Among Nomadic Cattle In Lanlate, Southwestern Nigeria
Q-fever, an important tick-borne zoonosis caused by Coxiella burnetii that affects a broad range of animal hosts, including humans. There is limited data on its prevalence in Nigeria particularly among ruminants in southwestern Nigeria. This study therefore evaluated the seroprevalence of C. burnetii antibodies and associated factors among nomadic cattle herds. A... Continue here

Yield And Quality Of Fodder Maize Intercropped With Lablab And Cowpea For Ruminant Feeding In The Humid Zone Of Nigeria
Inadequate feed resources, resulting from pressure on natural grazing systems due to land shortages and insecurity, have threatened food security in Sub-Saharan Africa. To ameliorate this challenge, the study was undertaken to determine the effect of manure on yield and quality of fodder maize intercropped with lablab and cowpea. Land was divided into 40 sub plots... Continue here

Breed Differences In Tonic Immobility And Emergence Of Commonly Raised Broiler Chicken
The impact of breed on various behavioural traits has been documented across numerous avian species; however, there exists a scarcity of studies focusing on commonly raised broiler chickens. Fear, characterised as a detrimental affective state, serves as an indicator of distress and is correlated with adverse implications for the welfare and productivity of... Continue here
