  A feeding trial was conducted to assess the nutritional value of Gliricidia Leaf Meal (GLM) on performance, nutrient digestibility and economy of production of layer chickens. GLM was used partially to replace maize and soyabean at 0, 5, 10 and 15% in diets A(control), B, C and D, respectively. Performance characteristics interms of Hen day production, feed intake, body weight gain, feed efficiency and feed cost were monitored. Chemical analysis revealed that GLM contains 24.38 Crude Protein (CP), 1.75 Ether Extract (EE), 12.45 Crude Fibre (CF), 8.64 Ash and 45.36% Nitrogen Free Extractives (NFE). Only egg weight showed no significant difference (p>0.05) while Henday production, feed intake feed efficiency and body weight were significantly different (p<0.05) among dietary treatments. Feed cost (N/kg feed) was significantly different (p<0.05) across the diet. Nutrient utilization studies (dry mater, crude protein and ether extractives) were not significantly influenced (p>0.05) due to dietary treatments. It therefore appears that up to 15% of GLM can be incorporated into laying chicken ration without any adverse effect.

  Twenty-four cross bred male weaner rabbits of between 5-8 weeks, with mean weight of 804.67 g, were used in a feeding trial involving three levels 0,15 and 20% inclusion of Wild Sunflower Forage Meal (WSFM) in a complete randomized design study that lasted for 8 weeks. The rabbits were randomly divided into three dietary groups of 8 rabbits each. Each rabbit served as a replicate. The parameters measured were, feed intake, daily weight gain, feed: gain ratio, organ weights, carcass yield and tissue development. Rabbits with 20% WSFM inclusion in their diet recorded significant (p<0.05) lower values in daily feed intake and weight gain than both the control and 15% inclusion group. Values recorded for all the groups however did not significantly (p>0.05) differ in organ weights, organ yield and tissue development. It was concluded that WSFM can be included in the weaner rabbit diet up to 15% level without any deleterious effect on growth performance.
