Growth Performance, Haematology and Blood Serum Chemistry of Weaner Rabbits Fed Parboiled-Sundried False Yam (Icacina Tricantha) Meal at Varying Replacement Level for Maize

A seven-week feeding trial was conducted at the Rabbitary Unit of the Teaching and Research Farm, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma to evaluate the growth performance, hematology and serum biochemistry of 15 unsexed weaner rabbits fed varying levels of Parboiled sundried false yam (Icacina tricantha) meal. Five treatments were formulated with diet one containing 100% maize as control, while in diet two, three, four and five parboiled sundried false yam meal replaced the percentage proportion of...

EFFECT OF REPLACING MAIZE WITH VARYING LEVELS OF CASSAVA GRIT ON THE HAEMATOLOGY AND SERUM BIOCHEMISTRY OF STARTING COCKERELS

A sixteen week trial was conducted to assess the effect of replacing cassava grit (CG) formaize on the haematology and serum biochemistry of 120 “day old” Harco cockerelchickens. Four experimental cockerel starter and finisher diets were formulated withformulated to contain 0% cassava grit while diet 2, 3 and 4 were formulated to containcassava grit at 33.3, 66.6 and 100% replacement for maizeto the four treatment diets in a completely randomized designed (CRD). Haindices assayed revealed...

Looting The Looters: The Paradox of Anti-Corruption Crusades in Nigeria's Fourth Republic

 The ubiquitous nature of corruption in Nigeria’s political boulevard has been a cogged wheel that backpedal developmental liberation in the country.

Survival and Growth Rate of Clarias gariepinus Larvae Fed with Artemia salina and Inert Diet.

This project work was basically conducted to provide fish farmers a preferable diet for Catfish fry.. Several diets were used while the fish growth rate amongst other parameters were observed  Abstract  The growth and survival of Clarias gariepinus larvae (0.42mg) fed Artemia salina (D1), inert diet (egg white + fish meal) (D2) and a combination of both diets (D3) was investigated for 42 days. Each diet was feed to 80 post yolk-sac fry,  in  triplicate  plastic  tanks  holding  40L  ...

Modelling Herbivore Feeding Effects on Vegetables and peppers

ABSTRACT The study modelled the effects of different feeding effects of herbivores on Corchorus olitorius and Capsicum annum. Thirty polyethylene pots were set up for each crop in the screen house of the Botanical Garden, University of ilorin. Each crop plant were sown using seeds. Three weeks after planting (3 WAP), the defoliation patterns of all  leaf removal (ALR), Half leaf removal (HLR) and perforation of all leaves (PFL) were made for Corchorus olitorius with the aid of scissors and p...

Improving Poultry Production in Ethiopia Through Production System Studies, Breed Characterization and Implementation of Improved Practices

Although, there are different poultry production systems in Ethiopia, the backyard productionsystem is the predominant oneandit is characterized bysmall flocksize, poor management, and not effective in terms of production and productivity. The demand of thecountry for egg production has not been achieved yet. Thus, there is a need to introduce an environmentally friendly, productive and sustainable production system that can better profit the producers and satisfy egg demand of the country. T...

Improving Ethiopian dairy sector through characterization of the production system, adopting Brazilian technologies, capacity building & farm data management

 Crossbreeding of temperate breeds with local cattle has been practiced for several decades in the country to improve the production and productivity of local animals. However, the interventions made so far were limited to highland agro-ecologies and partly in midlands. There is no improved dairy cattle technological options in Ethiopia for lowland agro-ecologies particularly for heat stress zones. Thus, this project was initiated between the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBR...

Swine Improvement in Ethiopia through Socio-Economic and Production Characterization and Development of a Production System

Although swine production has great potential to alleviate poverty in Ethiopia, little attention has been given to the sub-sector. Swine production and marketing has not been characterized until recently in the country. Therefore, there was a big information gap in the area. To fill this gap and improve the system, a collaborative research was initiated between EIAR and the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA). Brazil is one of the top swine producers and exporters in the wor...

Characterization of Pork Consumers and Preference for Quality Traits in Ethiopia

This study was carried out to characterize the socio-economic features of pork consumers, their preference for pork quality traits and motivational drivers to eat pork. Purposive and random sampling methods were used to select sampling areas and supermarkets. As it was difficult to find pork consumers in person, pork retailers at supermarkets were interviewed to describe their customers' (pork consumers') socio-economic features, volume of pork purchase and preference for different pork quali...

Production System, Feeding and Slurry Management of Swine in Ethiopia

The study was carried out to characterize the production systems, feeding & slurry management, herd administration, cost determinants and constraints of Ethiopian swine farming. A total of 66 swine farms were selected in six major towns to collect quantitative and qualitative data on the studied parameters. A multi-stage sampling procedure was employed to select sampling areas and respondents. A standardized questionnaire was used to collect the data using person to person interview. Data wer...

Ethiopian Native Chicken Productivity, Aims of Production and Breeding Practices Across Agro-climatic Zones

This study was conducted to characterize flock size, composition, productivity, motivational drivers, and breed selection criteria in village chicken production systems of lowlands, midlands, and highlands of Ethiopia. Data were collected at 360 rural households of which 120 were from lowland, 160 midland, and 80 highlands. A standardized questionnaire was used to collect the data using person to person interview method. Data were analyzed using the various statistical procedures of statistic...
