Modelling nutrient responses and performance of broiler breeders after sexual maturity.
With the worldwide increase in consumption of poultry meat in recent years, the production of hatchable eggs from broiler breeding stock has become a critically important component of the poultry industry. Surprisingly, a ...

Modelling broiler populations for purposes of optimisation.
With the narrow margin of profit in the broiler enterprise, how can producers increase profit potential? It is not an easy task to answer this question since the net financial return depends on many factors; some are related ...
The potential of pods from tree legumes as supplement to low quality roughages for ruminants.
The goal of the study was to examine the use of pods from tree legumes as supplements to poor quality roughage-based diets. Trials were carried out to address issues related to the nutrient content of the pods and their ...
Productivity of South African indigenous Nguni goats possessing Synergistes jonesii bacteria on Leucaena Leucocephala-grass and natural pastures.
The main objectives of the study reported in this thesis were to investigate the cause of poor conception and high pre-weaning kid mortality rates among South African indigenous Nguni goats (SAING) maintained on Leucaena ...
Nutritive value and manure quality in supplemented maize stover and grass hay diets for ruminants.
Production of ruminants is highly dependent on utilization of roughages. In tropical regions, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa, the roughages are predominantly of poor quality due to high fibre and low protein content. ...
The influence of energy density on the performance of feedlot cattle.
This study examined the interaction of diets differing in their energy densities and heat increments of feeding on the feed intake patterns, physiological measurements, empty body composition, and animal performance of ...
