  This study assessed farmers` interest in University of Ilorin poultry research results. Specifically, it investigated the socio-economic characteristics of commercial poultry farmers, their area of interest in poultry research result, and the sources preferred for information on the area of interest. Fifty-two commercial poultry farmers were randomly selected for the study. Information was elicited through questionnaire. The data were analyzed by using frequency, percentages, ranking, and Chi square. The study showed that commercial poultry farmers in Kwara State had mean age of 41.2 years, with 84.6% who had post secondary education, 59.6% had spent less than 5 years in poultry business. About 40.4% produced a combination of layers and broilers with average of 725 birds. They were interested in research result such as: the proportion of chicken offal meal and soybean meal for best performance in broilers; response of broilers chicks to raw or processed full fat soybean supplement among others. They preferred that information on their interest be channeled through Poultry Association of Nigeria, consultants and magazines. The study suggested that ADP need to bridge gap between researches and commercial poultry farmers. Also, Agricultural Extension Department in the university should work hand in hand with Department of Animal Production to publish summary of research results in magazines.

  This paper examines the socio-economic status of women in rural poultry production in selected areas of Kwara State, Nigeria. This is based on the hypothesis that there is no significant relationship between women’s participation and their socio-economic status such as age, marital status, level of education and occupation. The study was conducted in selected villages in Kwara State. A total of one hundred and twenty (120) women involved in rural poultry production were interviewed using random sampling. Data collected from the study were subjected to chi-square analysis. It was discovered from this study that the ages of the women mainly ranges from 21 years to 50 years (57%-97%) across the villages. Most of the women are married (70%-100%). Many of the women have no formal education with the largest percentage at Share (63%). Majority of women involved in rural poultry production are traders (50%-73%). Most benefits enjoyed by the women through rural poultry production include income generation to buy other necessities (10%-70%), income generation for local savings (Ajo) (10%-70%), provision of meat for consumption (35%-95%), provision of meat to entertain special guests (55%-97%), provision of meat during festive seasons (55%-97%), source of gifts (50%-100%), provision of employment opportunity through the sales of egg and chicken (40% - 75%) and improvement of household diets through consumption of eggs and meats (30% - 95%). The results of the chi-square analysis showed that the variables (age, educational level, marital status and occupation) have no significant relationship with the level of participation of rural women in poultry production. From the result, it is recommended that rural poultry production should be supported and the women should be more enlightened on how to keep their birds more successfully.

  This study was carried out to determine the scope of poultry production by rural women and common diseases associated it in selected Local Government Areas of Kwara State, Nigeria. Specifically, the study examined various parameters of poultry production, the time of the year that diseases were most observed, the rate of mortality associated with various diseases and level of vaccination of birds in those villages. One hundred and twenty (120) women involved in rural poultry production were randomly sampled from four (4) villages in Kwara State, Nigeria. Interview schedule was used to elicit information for the study. The data were analyzed and presented as frequency counts and percentages. It was discovered that rural poultry production was still at the subsistent level. The highest percentage of the women involved in rural poultry production had 1-10 bird(s) per species (59.13, 71.43 and 57.14% for chicken, duck and guinea fowl respectively). A larger percentage of chicken (76.72%) hatched between 1-10 bird(s) per laying period while ducks hatched more birds than chicken during each laying period (65% hatched between 11 and 20 birds). Guinea fowls had almost an even spread of the number of birds hatched per laying period across the flock size ranges considered. The common diseases observed by the respondents include Newcastle disease, fowl pox, coccidiosis and infectious bursal disease. The time of the year that diseases were prevalent was between September and December. Newcastle disease was indicated as the disease that resulted in the highest in mortality rate. Majority of the respondents had never vaccinated their birds and very few have ever contacted veterinary services (5-10%), except at Share (63.33%). It is therefore recommended that knowledge of rural women on poultry production should be improved. It is therefore recommended that awareness campaign should be conducted in the villages on how they can increase their rural poultry productivity, alerting them of the causes of various diseases and the available remedy.

  Fatty acids; proximate and amino acid composition of Anarcadium occidentale protein concentrate were investigated. The three most abundant fatty acids were C18:1ω 9 > C16:0 > C18:3 ω 3. Unsaturated fatty aids predominated in the sample with adequate amounts of essential fatty acids. Proximate analysis of protein concentrate revealed high percentage crude protein of 69.6g/100g protein. Ash and crude fibre were low while ether extract was not detected. The protein concentrate had a balanced content of some of the essential amino acids, with respect to the FAO/WHO provisional pattern however supplementation may be required in valine and threonine. The calculated isoelectric point (pI) was 4.25 while the first limiting amino acid was valine.
