The effect of processing and supplementing millet stover with groundnut haulms and cereal brans on feed intake and growth performance of sheep.
Feeding of animal has become increasingly a big challenge for smallholder farmers in the dry season in most of Sahelian countries. Sheep has an important role in social and economical activity of smallholder farmers. ...
The fibrolytic potential of domestic and wild herbivores microbial ecosystems on maize stover.
The growing demand for meat worldwide by the increasing human population (6.8 billion) calls for an increase in livestock production as well as attention to environmental sustainability. Production increases are critical ...
The effect of nitrogen fertilization and stage of re-growth on the nutrititive value of kikuyu in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal.
Kikuyu pasture was fertilized at low and high levels of nitrogen (N), namely 50 and 200 kg N/ha, after mowing and clearing the plots, to induce low and high levels of N in the herbage. The subsequent growth was harvested ...
The effects of dietary lysine, crude protein, energy and feed allocation on broiler breeder hen performance.
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of varying levels of dietary lysine and feed allocation, on the performance of female broiler breeders. In trial 1, 900 Cobb breeders from 26 to 45 weeks of age were ...
The response of broiler breeder hens to dietary lysine : hatchability, embryo growth and subsequent offspring performance.
This study was conducted to determine the effects of breeder hen dietary lysine on offspring performance. In trial 1, Cobb 500 broiler breeder hens were fed 1200, 1070, 930 and 800 mg lysine/bird/d from 26 to 60 weeks of ...
The use of enzyme supplementation for wheat-barley diets in poultry as a means of improving productive performance.
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of an exogenous multi-blend enzyme ( -glucanase and xylanase) on the performance of the broiler chickens and laying hens fed diets based on wheat and barley. Experiments ...
The effects of maternal dietary lysine intake on broiler breeder offspring performance.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of broiler maternal dietary lysine intake on progeny performance. Three experiments were conducted with chicks hatched from Cobb 500 breeders at 38, 48, and 60 weeks of ...
Factors influencing breast meat yield in broilers.
The increased demand for breast meat of broiler chickens has challenged researchers to investigate management techniques that could be used to increase the production of this valuable commodity. Two experiments were ...
The productive response of broiler breeder hens to lighting and growth manipulation during rearing.
This study was designed to provide information that would enable the development of a theory to predict age at sexual maturation and settable egg production in broiler breeder hens submitted to a variety of constant or ...
