Effect of varying levels of garlic (Allium sativum) powder on growth, apparent nutrient digestibility, rumen ecology, blood profile and cost analysis of feeding West African Dwarf goats

By Timothy Tertsegha Ikyume, Sowande, O.s., et al

The study was designed to investigate the feeding effect of garlic powder supplementation on growth performance, apparent nutrient digestibility, rumen fermentation, rumen micro organisms and blood profile of West African Dwarf (WAD) goats. For this purpose, 20 WAD bucks with mean average weight of 6.92±0.02 kg were balanced for weight and assigned to 4 treatment groups, i.e., Control, GP0.5 (0.5%/100 kg garlic powder supplementation), GP1.0 (1.0%/100 kg garlic powder supplementation), GP1.5 (1.5%/100 kg garlic powder supplementation). Animals were managed in individual pens and fed Panicum maximum as basal diet and concentrate (Treatment diet) at ratio 70:30 for 98 d after 21 d period of acclimatization. Results of this study showed that final weight, daily weight gain, concentrate intake, grass intake, total feed intake and feed conversion ratio were not significantly (p>0.05) affected by inclusion of garlic powder up to 1.5%. Crude protein digestibility significantly (p0.05) affected by garlic powder supplementation. Rumen pH and NH3-N were significantly (p0.05) affected by garlic powder supplementation. Garlic powder had inhibition effect on gram positive bacteria. Also haematological parameters measured in this study were not significantly (p>0.05) different with garlic powder supplementation. Total protein (TP), glucose and albumin decreased significantly (p

Growth Performance, Blood Profile and Economics of Production of West African Dwarf (WAD) Goats Fed Fermented Baobab (Adansonia Digitata) Seed Meal

By Timothy Tertsegha Ikyume, Eigege, N. N., et al

Wild plants and cultivated native species in Africa have great potential to reduce high cost of feeding
livestock. One of these plants grown in
the Africa are Baobab. Twelve (12) West African Dwarf (WAD)
goats with mean average body weight 7.639±0.249 kg were used in 56 days feeding trial after 14 days of
adaptation to examine the effect of fermented baobab seed meal addition in diet on perform
ance, blood
characteristics and economic analysis. Three experimental diets (control, WBb
-
15 and PBb
-
15) were
formulated with
palm kernel cake (PKC) replaced with water
-
fermented and palm wine
-
fermented baobab
seed.
Results indicated no significant (p>0.05
) difference in daily body weight change, forage intake, total feed
intake, Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC), however
concentrate intake, packed cell volume (PCV), total protein, cost/kg weight gain were signific
