The study was conducted to determine the carcass characteristics of broiler birds fed on prosopis seed meal. Two hundred and forty day-old anak ,2000 broiler chicks were used for the trail. Five experimental diets containing 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% DFPSM were fed to broilers for 8 weeks. The experiments were in a completely randomized design (CRD) w...

Compounds or substances which act to reduce nutrient intake, digestion, absorption and utilization and may produce other adverse effects are referred to as antinutrients or antinutritional factors. Seeds of legumes and other plant sources contain in their raw state wide varieties of antinutrients which are potentially toxic. The major antinutrients...

This study was carried out to evaluate the proximate and amino acid compositions of samples of raw and roasted pigeon pea seeds. The following range of values were obtained for dry matter (95.89-96.34%), crude protein (21.03-21.07%), crude fat (4.43-5.96%), crude fibre (7.16-7.52%) and ash (3.76-4.02%) respectively for the raw and roasted seeds of...

Two hundred and forty 7 days old Anak 2000 broiler chicks were used to determine the growth rate and economic of broiler fed decorticated fermented Prosopis africana seed meal (DFPSM). Five experimental diets containing 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% DFPSM replacement levels for full fat soybean meal were fed to broiler for 8 weeks. The experiments were in...

... The successful inclusion of processed seed meal of African mesquite in chicken diets has been reported by some researchers [8, 16,17]. It was reported [17] that total replacement of soya bean meal with decorticated fermented African mesquite seed meal in broiler diet had no negative effect on carcass yield. ...
... PA is a known anti-nutritional factor in FSM, which ranges from 23 to 33 g/kg of FSM [35]. PA has a strong chelating ability and can directly or indirectly bind mineral ions, proteins, and starches to form stable complexes [36], which leads to reduced digestibility and increased endogenous loss of nutrients in pigs and poultry, hence reducing the digestibility of feed. Studies have shown that PA could increase the excretion of endogenous minerals and AAs in broilers [37] and reduce the apparent ileal Na digestibility of the piglets [38]. ...
... Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp. is a leguminous annual woody or perennial plant [5], and the genus Cajanus consists of approximately 37 species out of which C. cajan is an extensively used commercial legume crop [6]. It is a native genus from ancient Egypt, Africa, Asia and America, and now it has been widely distributed across the tropical and subtropical regions [7]. ...
... They were allowed to cool before being covered with plantain leaves and left to ferment for three days, according to Ugwu (2018). The fermented seeds were then mashed into flour after being sun-dried to a consistent weight (Yusuf et al. 2008). The flour was then stored at 4°C before use. ...
