  Fourty Eight day old broiler chicks of Anak 2000 strain were used to determine the effect of an anitibiotic(Furazolidone) and antistress(Vitalyte) on production performance of broiler chickens. They were randomly assigned to four treatments comprising of Treatment 1(T1:control), Treatment 2(T2:antibiotic and antistress), Treatment 3(T3:Antibiotic) and treatment 4(Vitalyte). Results obtained from the study showed no significant differences (P>0.05) in final weight, feed intake, feed conversion efficiency and live weight gain between weeks four to nine. Inclusion of antibiotics and antistress in broiler diets over the five week period did not improve performance.

  Twenty-four Red Sokoto goats were hand milked for 120 days to determine milk flow rate. The does were grouped into three for once, twice and thrice a day milking to determine the effect of milking frequency on milk flow rate. The average daily milk yield and milk flow rate was 466.9g and 3.5g/sec, respectively. Milking frequency significantly (P<0.01) influenced milk yield and milk flow rate. The higher the milking frequency, the higher the milk yield, but with a decreasing flow rate. Milk yield and milk flow rate were significantly (P<0.01) and positively correlated (r = 0.88). Both milk yield and flow rate reached their peak at the 4th week of production. The optimum milking frequency for Red Sokoto goat in this study was the twice daily milking, since there was 52.7% increase in milk yield from once a day, with a marginal 7.9% reduction in milk flow rate.
