The high cost of conventional feed ingredients has necessitated the investigation into unconventional readily Kernel Meal (PKM). The study was conducted to determine the effect of using different levels of PKM in broilers chicks diet on performance, cost effectiveness, blood chemistry and carcass characteristics. Two hundred (200) day old Anak 2000...
Article
The study presents comparative proximate and amino acid composition of two differently processed palm kernel meals (PKM) as poultry and livestock feed. The results of the proximate analysis showed 21.35% crude protein (CP) for locally extracted palm kernel meal compared to 14.73% CP for industrial palm kernel meal. Local palm kernel meals also have...

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...

Mycotoxins are harmful substances produced by fungi in various foods and are estimated to affect as much as 25% of the world`s crop each year. Most of these mytocoxins belong to the three genera of fungi: Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium. Although over 300 mytocoxins are known, those of most concern based on their toxicity and occurrence, are...

In a mastitic event damage to the epithelial tissue of the mammary gland, and in particular an increase in paracellular permeability allows sodium to enter the milk from the blood (Schaar and Funke, 1986). Normally there is a stepwise gradient of declining sodium concentration from the interstitial fluid to the epithelial cells to the milk (Berga a...

Article
The nutritive value of a given ruminant feedstuff is best evaluated using the combination of chemica analysis, in vitro and in vivo feeding responses (Van Soest, 1987). Recent studies have further shown that degradation characteristics of foods, gas production characteristics, fibre components and the in vitro dry matter (DM) digestibility (Tilley...

... Though broilers require fibre for the proper functioning of the digestive tract, their response to fibre inclusion depends on the source and level of dietary fibre, the characteristics of the diet, as well as the physiological status and health of the birds [4]. Broiler birds have, however, been fed on different sources of non-conventional feed ingredients such as corncob [5], palm kernel cake [6,7], rice husks [8] and cocoa pod husk [9,10]. ...
... The value obtained in this study fall within the ranges values of 3.14 Table 2. Effect of cooking duration on non-essential amino acids profile of cooked flamboyant seed meal. to 6.35% of local and industrial palm kernel meal as reported by Bello et al. (2008). Flamboyant seeds might be of good biological value for monogastric nutrition if well processed to reduce anti-nutritional content present in it as reported by Alemede et al. (2010). ...
... Pigeon pea seeds contain about 57 -58% carbohydrate, 17 -28% protein, 1.2 -8.1% crude fibre, 0.6 -3.8% fat, and are a rich source of dietary minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron and sulphur) as well as water soluble vitamins (thiamine. riboflavin, niacin and choline) (Akande et al., 2010). Studies also showed that the protein of pigeon pea is rich in lysine (Adebowale and Maliki, 2011) but low in sulfur amino acids, methionine and cysteine (Akande et al., 2010). ...
... In most cases, fungal infestation on produces or foodstuffs indicates a high possibility of contamination of at least one kind of the toxin. Such infestation causes low nutritional value and poor organoleptic properties, which affect feed intake by animals (Akande et al., 2006) subsequently reduces livestock productivity and increases mortality (Zain, 2011). ...
