ABSTRACT
An animal nutrition experiment, using wheat offal control, was set-up with a view to finding the effects of various chemical treatments of sawdust on its nutritional parameters. The aim was to come-up with a sustainable new way of managing the menace of sawdust, an urban solid waste, that is becoming cumbersome to manage. Caustic soda, (NaOH); Urea, ([NH2]2CO) and Wood ash were used to treat the sawdust and thereafter supplemented with molasses. The results indicated a significant effect (P<0.05) of rations on Average Daily Gains, Feed Conversion Ratio and on Feed cost per Kg gain. Feed costs per Kg gain were better for the Urea and Caustic soda treated sawdust rations compared to the control. There was, however, no significant effect on Final weight and on Feed intake. It was, therefore, established that the digestibility coefficients of the treated sawdust were high enough to cause increase in live-weight of the test animals and that the poor nutritional values preventing the use of sawdust as animal feed in poor nations can be enhanced by treating it with Urea, Caustic soda and/or Wood ash.

    A 21 days trial was conducted to assess the effect of extensive, intensive and semi-intensive feeding practices on electro-encephalographic (EEG) recordings in six female goats (Local X Jamunapari). The study was done in three phases, phase I (GZ) comprised of extensive feeding, phase II (STF)...

    The effect of weaning age (42 vs. 70 days) on the feed intake and growth performance from seven to 140 days of age was investigated, using 58 male Saanen kids. Final body weight, average daily gain and feed conversion efficiency did not differ significantly between weaning ages during the creep...

    The aim of this study was to quantify the suitability of Boscia foetida as a fodder source for goats. Samples of leaves and twigs were taken in the Northern Cape and Limpopo provinces of South Africa. The concentrations of Ca, Mg, and Mn in leaves and stems were sufficient for production, but...
