  A study was carried out to determine the intake and utilization of Mango leaf meal by growing rabbits. Twenty cross weaned rabbits of average weight 700 g were randomly assigned to the five iso-nitrogenous and iso-caloric diets in which wheat offal was substituted at 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100%. The results showed that rabbits weight reduced significantly (p<0.05) across the dietary treatments. Weight gain and feed intake were affected significantly (p<0.05) by the treatment imposed on the rabbits. Dry matter digestibility, ash and crude fibre digestibility were affected across the treatment. Carcass evaluation values were significantly influenced by the treatment except the kidney. The cost kg-1 diet (^) decreased significantly as the level of dietary inclusion of Mango leaf meal increased from 0 to 100%. At the end of the study the highest savings on feed to produce kg-1 was obtained in the group which consumed 100% mango leaf meal diet. This was closely followed by rabbits on 75, 50 and 25%. It was therefore concluded that Mango leaf meal can be fed to weaner rabbits up to 50% level without any adverse effect on performance variables.

  Sixteen weaner rabbits of six weeks old, mixed breeds were fed Rice Milling waste based diets at 0, 25, 50 and 75% levels (replacing maize), respectively. This was done for a period of thirty-five days. The weight gain, feed conversion and protein efficiency ratios of rabbits fed 0% level and 25% level were significantly higher than those of rabbits fed 50 and 75% levels of the experimental diet. 0% and 25% levels do not have any significant difference between them. No mortality was recorded and also no physiological changes were observed throughout the thirty-five days of experiment. The nitrogen retention and crude fibre digestibility of diets fed 0% RMW and 25%RMW were significantly (p<0.05) the same and higher than others. Basically, from the performance data, there were no significance differences between the control diet 0% (RMW) and 25% (RMW) when compared, but there were significant differences when compared with diet 3 (50% RMW) and diet 4 (75% RMW), with diet 4 having the least performance. In terms of costing, diet 4 (75%) was the cheapest, but the least performance, while that of diet 2 (25% RMW) had a better performance and at a reduced cost. It can be concluded that RMW can conveniently be included in a weaner ration at 25% level of inclusion (replacing maize) without any adverse effect.

  A ten-weeks feeding trial was conducted to assess the effect of inclusion of Maize Milling Waste (MMW) with/without xylanase supplementation on the performance characteristics, nutrient digestibility, haematological traits and carcass characteristics of weaner rabbits. A total of 48 unsexed, crossbred weaner rabbits were randomly allotted to the experimental diet in a 2 x 4 factorial arrangement with MMW at graded levels (0, 12, 23 and 35%) and two xylanase levels (0 ppm, 100 ppm). There were eight treatment groups of six rabbits each per treatment group(3 replicate of 2 rabbits per replicate). The final live weight of the rabbit were significantly (p<0.05) affected by MMW inclusion levels and it decreases as inclusion level of MMW increases from T1 to T4 and T3 to T8 respectively. Xylanase inclusion has no effect and hence did not improve the feed intake, final weight or weight gain. Nitrogen retention and crude fibre digestibility were not significantly (p<0.05) affected by the treatment. Ash digestibility significantly (p<0.05) increases as the inclusion level increases. Carcass yield indicated that shrunk weight, empty carcass weight and head were significantly (p<0.05) affected by the treatment imposed. The empty carcass weight reduces with increase in MMW inclusion level from 1165.30 g to as low as 999.30 g T4. The same trend also applies for the xylanase supplemented diets. The haemoglobin, red blood cell, mean corpuscular volume and white blood cell were all significantly (p<0.05) affected by the treatment. The result indicated that above 12% MMW inclusion level may have adverse effect (with/without xylanase enzyme supplementation) on rabbit performance and nutrient utilization and may not be a promising energy supplement beyond inclusion level of 12% in a weaner’s diet.

  An investigation was carried out into the use of cassava peel meal as energy source for growing pigs. Four experimental diets were formulated using graded levels 0, 10, 20 and 30% cassava peel meal as replacement for maize on a weight for weight basis. The diets were neither iso-nitrogenous nor iso-caloric. Sixteen growing pigs of an average range 12.0 to 12.5 kg were randomly allocated to 4 dietary treatments in a completely randomized fashion with each treatment replicated twice. The diet containing 0% cassava peel meal (control diet) was tagged diet I and fed to pigs in treatment I while diets containing 10, 20 and 30% cassava peel meal, tagged diets 2, 3 and 4, respectively were fed to pigs in treatments 2, 3 and 4, respectively. The pigs were fed on an ad-libitum basis and data were collected on them for a period of 8 weeks. Results show that the inclusion of cassava peel meal up to a level of 30% in the diets of growing pigs did not have any significant (p>0.05) effects on their performance. The cassava peel meal diets gave similar daily weight gains and feel conversion ratios as the control diet while there were slight differences in feed intake. However, feed cost per kilogramme weight gain was significantly (p<0.05) reduced with the inclusion of cassava peel meal in the diets. Cassava peel meal could therefore be included in the diets of growing pigs up to level of 30% to reduce feed cost without any detrimental effect on performance.

  The proximate and mineral compositions, gross energy, sugars, oligosaccharides and some anti-nutrient substances of raw, soaked, dehulled and germinated bambara groundnut seeds were determined. Crude protein, ash, crude fibre, nitrogen free extract and gross energy values were significantly (p<0.05) highest in Germinated Bambara Groundnut (GBG), compared to soaked and Dehulled Bambara Groundnut (SBG and DBG). Ether extract was significantly (p<0.0) reduced in DBG and GBG samples, but statistically highest in RBG and SBG seeds. Calcium, potassium and magnesium levels were significantly (p<0.05) higher in GBG seeds compared to the values in SBG and DBG. The value of phosphorous in RBG was significantly (p<0.05) reduced by dehulling and germination, but not affected by soaking. Sucrose and glucose levels of processed bambara groundnut seeds were significantly (p<0.05) highest in GBG samples than other processed samples. Whereas, the raffinose, stachyose, trypsin inhibitor activity, haemagglutinin, tannin and phytin contents were significantly (p<0.05) reduced by all the processing methods with the least value recorded in GBG. The results indicate that germination enhanced the nutrient contents and drastically reduced the anti-nutrient components of raw bambara groundnut seeds.

  The investigation was carried out to determine the chemical composition of cassava offals and cassava sievates collected from 5 locations in Edo State, Nigeria. Following sun-drying (30-35oC), the cassava by-products were analyzed for protein, fibre, carbohydrate, cyanide, ash and fat. The results revealed that the DM for the sievates ranged between 87.06 and 91.88%; (P (1.02 - 1.07%); EE (0.50 - 0.84%); and CF (3.01 - 3.25%). Others were ash (between 1.74 and 2.01%), Carbohydrate (47.20 - 66.00%) and cyanide between 1.24 and 1.63mg/kg. In addition, those for the cassava offals were between 1.72 and 2.21%CP; 0.48 - 0.85%EE; 1.26 - 3.20% CF; starch (between 70.50 and 77.52%) and cyanide (0.97 - 1.20mg/kg). Thus, indicating variations with respect to location in most cases.

  A ten-week feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effect of feeding varying levels of forage (Syndrella nodiflora) on the performance, haematology, and serum chemistry of twenty-four weaner rabbits. Six rabbits each were assigned to each dietary treatment (A, B, C and D) in three replicate groups of two rabbits each, in a completely randomized design (CRD). Performance data of weaner rabbits reflect that average final live weight, weight gain, feed intake and feed conversion ratio were significantly (P< 0.05) higher in rabbits fed diets B and C than those on diets A and D (0 and 75% supplement). All the heamatological and serum chemistry indices assayed were not significantly (P>0.05) affected by the dietary treatments. Therefore, Syndrella nodiflora can be used to supplement rabbit diets up to 50% to enhance performance without any adverse effect.
