To analyse nutrient use efficiencies in peri-urban cattle and sheep production of West Africa with their complex combination of free grazing and homestead feeding, data on demographic events, live weight changes and milk offtake as well as types and amounts of feedstuffs provided at the homestead and manure deposited there were collected over 18 months in 9(More)
Dry-season cattle feeding in the semi-arid zone of Mali is based on natural pasture hay or millet or sorghum crop residues. Some use is made of cowpea haulms, but supplies of these are limited. Diets are generally deficient in nitrogen, of low digestibility and consequently intake is restricted, contributing to observed dry-season weight losses in mature(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate milk yield and its composition during the preweaning period for Sahelian goats (SG) and Anglo-Nubian (AN) crossbred depending on some factors. The experiments were conducted from January to December 2008 for 44 suckled and hand-milked does, randomized, and divided into two equal groups: SG (n = 22) and F1 Anglo-Nubian ×(More)
Guajillo (Acacia berlandieri Benth.) is a low-growing, multi-stemmed shrub widely distributed in southern Texas and northern Mexico. Proximate analysis indicates the leaves have high concentrations of nitrogen and energy suggesting that it is a potentially valuable forage resource, yet excessive consumption is believed to cause a hind-limb ataxia.
