  Clinical observations and haematological changes following gastro-intestinal worm Haemonchus contortus was investigated experimentally in West African Dwarf (WAD) kids. 10 apparently healthy kids were experimentally infected orally with 750 infective larvae of Haemonchus contortus for a period of 5 weeks. The kids were weighed, the blood and faecal samples were collected before and after infection. Studentís t-test statistical analysis was used. The clinical observations on the infected WAD kids were normal rectal temperature, normal respiratory rate, normal heart rate and normal prepatent period with muscular weakness, anorexia, intestinal distension by worms, weight loss, reduced carcass quality, reduced feed intake, diarrhea and anaemia. The infestation was characterized by responsive normocytic-nomochromic anaemia. The weight and erythrocytic values were significantly different at p<0.05 and p<0.01 compared with the control. The erythrocytic indices, the total WBC and differential leucocyte counts were not significantly different at p>0.05 and p>0.01. The weight and erythrocytic values are directly proportional to the level of presence of helminthes eggs in the faeces.

  Egg laying performance of 120 pullets sired by four different strains- three Nigerian indigenous (Naked-neck, Frizzle feathered and Normal feathered) and one exotic (White Leghorn) was studied over an 18-week period. The traits considered were egg number and egg weight. Sire genotype significantly (P < 0.05) affected mean egg number and egg weight while season had no significant effect (P > 0.05). Frizzle feathered progeny laid more eggs (4.61± 0.27 - 6.25±0.35) comparable to the progeny of White Leghorn while Naked neck progeny laid heavier eggs (44.26±1.12gm - 47.76±1.41gm). Estimate of heritabilities (h2s) was low for egg number (h2s = 0.07) and moderate ((h2s = 0.31) for egg weight (genotypes combined). Negatively low genetic and phenotypic correlations were recorded between egg number and egg weight. This study therefore revealed the existence of genetic variability and potentials for genetic improvement in egg traits amongst the Nigerian local chickens.

  A total of 357 progenies (both sexes) produced by 23 sires belonging to 4 sire strains; 3 Nigerian indigenous (Naked-Neck, Frizzle and Normal) and an exotic purebred (White Leghorn) chickens were evaluated for growth traits at day-old, 4, 8, 16 and 20 weeks of age. The growth traits measured were body weight (BDW), body length (BDL), Breast Girth (BG) and Keel Length (KL). Sire genotypes significantly (p<0.05) affected BDW, BDL, BG and KL at all ages except at first week of age for breast girth (p>0.05). Significant differences were also recorded for sex for each of the growth traits at different ages (p<0.05). Progenies of Naked Neck sire were generally superior in BDW followed by Frizzle, Normal and White Leghorn progenies. Male progenies were significantly (p<0.05) heavier and possess higher linear body measurements than their female counterpart in all age except KL at day-old and 20 week of age. The significance (p<0.05) of sire x sex interactions on growth traits varied with age. This study revealed the existence of genetic variations and potential for improvement amongst the Nigerian local chickens.

  Experiment were conducted to evaluate the nutritive of 15 forage legumes collected from 5 locations Ogbomoso local government area of Oyo state in Nigeria. Analysis carried out for macro and micro-mineral contents of these plants showed high percentages of Mg (0.31), P (0.28), Ca (1.25), Na (0.02) and K (2.44). Overall mean levels were 23.64 ppm for Zn, 315.66 for Fe, 86.42 for Mn, 9.43 for Cu and 108.90 for Se. In all forages the concentrations of physic-acid (28.55-316.22mg g-1), physic-phosphorus (20.1792.50 mg g-1), oxalates (0.540.82) and nitrates (0.13-0.66%) were moderate to high. Saponin and hydrogen cyanide contents were inherently low or low due to a high drying temperature of the samples. Tannin acid differed considerably among the different species, being absent or low in some forages and extremely high in others. These differences may be genetic or due to cultural practices and soil composition. The nutritional implications of the results are discussed.
