Ogbonnaya Chukwu    

Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the prospect of incorporating solid wastes from food processing industries into livestock feeds. Solid wastes from 2 industries were analyzed into their components to determine the possibility of their use as livestock feeds. The results of the analysis showed that the solid wastes could be a good source of livestock feed. It was recommended that the practice of dumping solid wastes on industrial premises, into near-by streams and water bodies, or buried into landfills should be stopped as such practices could lead to environmental degradation, economic losses and poses public health hazards to human, aquatic and land animals.
