Article
A factorial experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of L-Carnitine and fenofibrate on broilers. There were four replicates of four treatments, with each replicate including ten male Ross 308 broiler chickens. The experiment was conducted over a 42-day period. The treatments consisted of two levels of L-Carnitine (200 and 400 mg/kg) and...

Some studies have evaluated the use of Opuntia as reinforcement for polymeric matrices, obtaining good results in energy absorption tests and increasing the tensile elastic modulus. However, no studies focusing on the previous characterisation of the fibres and their treatment to improve compatibility with polymeric matrices have been found. This w...

The purpose of this paper was to study the possible causes of Non-Specific Reactive Hepatitis (NSRH) in tissue samples of housed dogs that were collected from different cities of Andalucia (Spain). Histologically, this disease was characterized by the presence of lymphocytes and plasma cells spread throughout the liver parenchyma and in the portal...

Kudoid myxozoans have been reported causing serious chronic problems in marine fisheries, by reducing the market value of infected fish through pathological damage to the host musculature. We report here the overall prevalence of a Kudoa species in 84/277 (30.3%) fishes from 20 different species of high commercial value captured between October 201...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of replacing rye-grass (Lolium spp.) hay with banana (Musa acuminata L.) by-products on feed intake, average daily gain (ADG), and feed conversion rate (FCR) in Pelibuey (hair sheep breed) lambs. The lambs (n = 22; initial BW = 14.8 ± 2.5 kg) were individually housed and fed on two different t...

The aim of this study was to describe the gross, histopathological and immunohistochemical features of non-specific reactive hepatitis (NSRH) in stray dogs. To perform this study the livers of 23 dogs of different breed and sex were used. The tissue sections were stained with hematoxylin–eosin, and immunohistochemically. The results of this work sh...

The objective of this study was to contribute to the characterization of nutritional potentials, with special attention to the total phenol and condensed tannins content and the effects on in vitro digestibility of some browsing shrub legumes traditionally used for ruminant feeding. The varieties selected were Bituminaria bituminosa var. bituminosa...

This study was conducted to evaluate the germination response of tedera seeds(Bituminaria bituminosa var. bituminosa C. H Stirt) to water submersion t. Tederais a perennial legume considered as a potential new pasture for Mediterranean,African and arid areas and traditionally used as forage for ruminants. It ischaracterized by deep-rootedness, drou...

An interesting challenge for scientists in the field of animal nutrition for ruminant is the introduction of alternative feedstuffs that could overcome the problems of environmental harshness of forage and pasture in tropical, subtropical and arid areas, where pasture is available only for short periods or is not available at all. Moreover, in some...

Article
A 2-year study investigated two methods of feeding concentrated rations to intensively reared dairy goats: separate distribution of concentrate and forage in different feeders or concentrate and forage mixed rations. Both rations consisted, on dry matter basis, 15% ryegrass hay as roughage and 85% fibrous concentrate mixture (33% corn grain, 26.5%...
Article
The potential nutritive value of tomato by-products, both fruits and vegetative parts, was assessed by chemical analyses as well as by organic matter (OM) and crude protein (CP) in sacco degradability and in vitro organic matter digestibility. Tomato fruits contained 69g dry matter (DM) per kg fresh fruit and the average composition, per kg DM, was...
Article
The voluntary intake of three varieties of Bituminaria bituminosa (crassiuscula, albormaginata and bituminosa), commonly called psoralea or tedera, collected in summer and winter was assessed using adult male goats. Dry matter (DM) content of varieties ranged from 221 to 281g per kg fresh varieties, and chemical composition (perkg DM) of varieties...
Article
The nutritive value of three forage shrubs endemic from Canary Islands (Bituminaria bituminosa, Rumex lunaria, Adenocorpus foliosus) and two introduced shrubs (Acacia salicina, Cassia sturtii) was studied along the year. Mean organic matter, neutral detergent fibre and protein content (gkg−1 dry matter (DM)) of four cuts along the year was, respect...
Article
The nutritive value of three Tagasaste (Chamaecytisus proliferus) subspecies (palmensis, canariae and meridionalis) was studied. Forage cuts from spring, summer, autumn and winter were compared with those of Medicago arborea. Organic matter (OM), neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and crude protein (CP) content of Tagasaste subspecies ranged from 91.9 t...
Article
The "dry ammoniation" method was developed at "La Esperanza" farm, University of Zulia, Venezuela, located in a dry tropical area, as a means to improve the quality of tropical hays without the humidity problems observed with the wet technique. The effects of storage time (14 and 21 days), water volume (200 and 400 ml/kg hay) and urea quantity (20...
Article
Alkaloid contents (sparteine accounted for more than 80%) of four subspecies of Chamaecytisus proliferus (tagasaste) were higher in spring cuts than in autumn cuts, and they were (gkg−1 DM for spring and autumn cuts, respectively) 2.9 and 1.6 for palmensis subspecies, 7.3 and 2.9 for canariae, 11.3 and 7.9 for meridionales and 2.7 for the autumn cu...
