Bindelle, J., Ilunga, Y., Delacollette, M., Muland Kayij, M., Umba di M’Balu, J., Kindele, E. and Buldgen, A. Voluntary intake, chemical composition and in vitro digestibility of fresh forages fed to Guinea pigs in periurban rearing systems of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo). Tropical Animal Health and Production.The daily voluntary intake (DVI) of Guinea pigs (GP) fed 15 fresh forages used in periurban rearing systems of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo) was investigated. In… Expand
Nutritive value of unconventional fibrous ingredients fed to Guinea pigs in the Democratic Republic of Congo
TLDR
The influence of intestinal fermentation on energy and protein values was highlighted by correlations (P<0.05) between in vivo and in vitro data, including gas fermentation, the first time that such relationships are reported in single-stomach animals. Expand
Nutritive value of three tropical forage legumes and their influence on growth performance, carcass traits and organ weights of pigs
TLDR
Using forage to feed pig could be interesting in pig smallholder production with limited access to concentrate, as FCR was not significantly affected. Expand
Feed intake, digestibility, growth performance, and blood profile of pigs fed mixtures of dried and ground fig (Ficus sur) fruits and graded levels of maize
TLDR
It is concluded that feeding FSF has comparable effects with MG on the metabolic performance, growth, and blood profile of pigs. Expand
Digestion of bamboo compared to grass and lucerne in a small hindgut fermenting herbivore, the guinea pig (Cavia porcellus).
TLDR
Although guinea pigs increased DM intake on the bamboo diet, the negative effects on fermentation of lignin and silica in bamboo seemed overriding, and bamboo as an exclusive food resource can be considered as inadequate. Expand
Effect of a supplementation of Euphorbia heterophylla on nutritional meat quality of Guinea pig (Cavia porcellus L.).
TLDR
It is shown that Euphorbia heterophylla is a source of n-3 fatty acids which can improve significantly the n- 3 PUFA content of Guinea pig meat and carcass. Expand
Chemical Composition, Dry Matter Intake by West African Dwarf Goats and In Vitro Digestibility of Panicum maximum and Palm Kernel Cake Mixtures
The experiment was conducted to determine dry matter intake (DMI) by West African dwarf (WAD) goats, chemical composition, in vitro gas production and dry matter digestibility of Panicum maximumExpand
Forage plants as an alternative feed resource for sustainable pig production in the tropics: a review.
TLDR
The influence of the breed and the physiological status of the animal on animal voluntary intake of fibre-rich ingredients, digestibility as related to gastrointestinal volume and transit time and growth performances, and the need for proper economic evaluation are discussed. Expand
Nutritional and environmental consequences of dietary fibre in pig nutrition: a review
TLDR
Dietary fibre is indeed a possible means to reduce nitrogen losses of production units and to improve pig intestinal health and animal welfare and the potential role of in vitro fermentation methods to investigate the fate of dietary fibre in the digestive system is discussed. Expand
Palatability of nine fodders species used by guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus)
TLDR
Nine fodders commonly offered to the guinea pig by the breeders in Lubumbashi were compared for chemical composition and for both daily dry matter intake and palatability indices by using 13 three-month-old guinea pigs. Expand
Comparison of Panicum Maximum or Pennisetum Purpureum on Reproductive Performance and Pre-Weaning Growth of Guinea Pigs (Cavia L. Porkellus)
In order to compare the reproductive performance of guinea pigs fed on Panicum maximum or Pennisetum purpureum, 28 adult guinea pigs, divided into 2 lots of 14 animals (2 males and 12 females) each,Expand

Chemical composition, nutritive value and voluntary intake of tropical tree foliage and cocoyam in pigs
TLDR
It is concluded that low energy density is the main limiting factor of tree foliage for pig nutrition but that they are good sources of minerals and well-balanced proteins. Expand
Prediction of the total tract digestibility of energy in feedstuffs and pig diets by in vitro analyses
TLDR
A close relationship between determined dE and predicted dE for these feed mixtures by the use of the above equation was found and the in vitro approach for energy evaluation appears to have a significant potential for practical purposes. Expand
Influence of purified dietary fibre on bacterial protein synthesis in the large intestine of pigs, as measured by the gas production technique
Abstract Microbial fermentation of non-digestible carbohydrates in the pig's large intestine induces a shift of N excretion from urea in urine to bacterial protein in faeces. Experiments were carriedExpand
Bio-nutritional evaluations of three tropical leaf vegetables (Telfairia occidentalis, Amaranthus cruentus and Talinum triangulare) as sole dietary protein sources in rat assay
TLDR
The bio-nutritional potentials of three tropical vegetable leaf meals were investigated using albino rat as the test animal and expectedly, the apparent nitrogen digestibility, protein efficiency ratio (PER), net protein ratio (NPR), true digestibility (TD), biological value (BV) and net protein utilization (NPU) all indicated higher and better values. Expand
Effect of inoculum and pepsin–pancreatin hydrolysis on fibre fermentation measured by the gas production technique in pigs
TLDR
The method using faeces as a source of microbial inoculum is reliable to characterise the fermentation kinetics of ingredients in the large intestine of pigs, however, it is important to hydrolyse the substrates with pepsin and pancreatin before the gas tests. Expand
In vitro digestibility and chemical composition of three tropical pasture legumes, Desmodium intortum cv. Greenleaf, D. tortuosum and Macroptilium atropurpureum cv. Siratro
TLDR
The polyphenols of D. intortum, because of their ability to complex with protein, appeared to be the major cause of the resistance of this legume to bacterial decomposition, but they did not fully explain the low in vitro digestibility ofThis legume. Expand
Effect of storage duration on frozen inoculum to be used for the in vitro gas production technique in rabbit
Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the effect of storage duration of frozen inoculum on fermentation parameters obtained with the in vitro gas production technique. Two non-predigestedExpand
Methods for dietary fiber, neutral detergent fiber, and nonstarch polysaccharides in relation to animal nutrition.
TLDR
In addition to NDF, new improved methods for total dietary fiber and nonstarch polysaccharides including pectin and beta-glucans now are available and are also of interest in rumen fermentation. Expand
Nutritive value of the winged bean (Psophocarpus palustris Desv.).
TLDR
The pleasant, sweet taste even when in the raw state is one of the advantages of the winged bean, and its cultivation on a small scale in selected areas of Ghana is recommended. Expand
