This study examined the analysis of personal and production performance of broiler farming in 10 cities of central Punjab (Lahore, Sheikhupura, Kasur, Okara, Sargodha, Sahiwal, Gujranwala, Gujrat, Nankana, and Kamalia) of Pakistan. These districts are densely populated and renowned for broiler production. Primary data were collected through a survey of 100 poultry farmers. Personal and production information were collected from the respondents. Descriptive statistics was employed in the form of ...
The study aimed to characterize genetic diversity, genetic clusters, and phylogenetic relationships of 15 Vietnamese indigenous pig breeds across the country for supporting the decision making of the conservation strategies. For this purpose, 638 samples from the breeds together with two wild pig breeds and an exotic breed were genotyped with 19 microsatellite markers recommended from FAO/ISAG for diversity studies. The higher genetic diversity was observed for indigenous breeds (mean He = 0.67)...

The immergence of antibiotic resistance, in livestock especially poultry, led to the ban of antibiotics as a growth promoter in some part of the world. This brought about the investigations into the development of various alternatives to antibiotics that will not compromise the integrity of poultry products for safe consumption. Therefore, this study examined the possible impacts of selected plants seeds (pawpaw, mustard, and black cumin) as feed additives on the performance, carcass characteris...

High environmental temperatures are one of the main causes of reduced productivity and reproduction in livestock. In an endeavour to counteract the effects of high temperature, a special class of proteins known as heat shock proteins function to alleviate heat stress in the cells. In this study, two regions (3′- and 5′-UTR) of the heat shock protein 70.1 (HSP70.1) gene were studied in Nguni crossbred cattle. Subsequently, the population genetic structure was elucidated. The 5′-UTR contained the ...
The increase in haylage production leads to the search for additives that improve its fermentation and nutritional value. This study aimed to assess the effect of adding crude glycerine and microbial additives on losses, fermentation parameters and nutritional value of haylage. The treatments were composed of three doses of crude glycerine (0, 60 and 120 g/kg forage) and three types of inoculation (control (distilled water), SIL (Lactobacillus plantarum 2.6 × 1010 CFU/g and Pediococcus pentosace...

The experiment was conducted to evaluate changes in feed consumption and water intake among broiler chickens subjected to melatonin treatment during the hot-dry season. A total of 300 broiler chicks were selected and assigned into three groups, by simple random sampling, comprising 100 chicks each: group I was exposed to natural photoperiod of about 12-h light and 12-h darkness cycle (12D/12L), without melatonin supplementation; group II was kept under 24-h continuous lighting (CL), without mela...

The polymorphisms of the PRNP gene influence the susceptibility to scrapie in goats. In this study, caprine PRNP gene was analysed in a total of 249 individuals from three main indigenous goat breeds of Turkey: Anatolian Black, Angora and Kilis. We focused on the Anatolian Black breed, which represents 97% of the goat population in Turkey and compared the data of samples originated from different geographical regions. Eight polymorphisms were determined, given rise to 12 haplotypes. Allele, geno...

The main objective of this research was to evaluate the effects of chemical treatment and sonication (ultrasound) processing on the fiber composition and rumen degradability of date palm seeds (DPS). In the first trial, the effects of incubation or sonication in 4% sodium hydroxide (NaOH) on DPS fiber content and ruminal degradability were evaluated. Relative to untreated seeds, the ruminal degradability of DPS neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and organic matter (OM) increased (P 0.05). In the thir...

The aim of this study was to investigate the replacement effect of cactus cladodes with cassava root and corn silage (CRCS) (0, 25, 50, 75, and 100%, dry matter basis) in diets of lactating dairy cows on nutrients intake and digestibility, microbial protein synthesis, nitrogen balance, and milk yield. Ten Holstein cows with an average milk yield of 16 kg/day, an initial body weight (BW) of 670 ± 35 kg, and an average of 17 weeks in milking were assigned to an experiment using a double 5 × 5 Lati...
