Résumé

Douze (12) canards nain d'afrique de Liouest ont ete reparti au Hazard en 3 groupes de traitement (A, B etc) de 4 animals chacum. Ils s'etaient nourri d'une meme fraction de 0% de milletia thoningii durant 4 semines pour permettre l'acclimatisation et les donnees de base etaient releves sur tous les canards. Its avaient ensuite recu un teste de regime. Le groupe de controle A contenant 0% de miltetia thoningii Le groupe B. 17% et le groupe C: 34% de M. thoningii dans leur nourriure pendant 8 seminaines. Leurs parametres cliniques etaient les suivants: La temperature rectale ((toc± S.D) retaient: 38.84 ± 0.38, 38.48 0.15 et 37.88 ± 0.58 pour les groupes A, B etc respectivement. La frequence de respiration moyenne (bettement ± S.D) etaient 31.20 ± 3.42, 39.80 ± 4.02, 30.4 ± 3.36 des groupes A, B etc respectivement. La frequence des battements cardiaques (battement/min ± S.D) etaient de 82.00 ± 5.52, 62.20 ± 3.56 et 70.00 ± 3.67 des groupes A, B etc respectivement. IL Y avait une reduction significative (P<0.05) en battement cardiaques en groupes B etc compare au groupe de control A. Li Hematocrite des 3 groupes ni etaint pas significamment differents l'un de l'auntre. (P<0.05). Le taux de globules rouges (X1012/e) etaiti plus elevee en groupe B avec 12.85 ± 6.24 et plus bas en groupe C avec 10.25 ± 1.29 lorsque le taux des globules balncs (X109L) etait plus eleve en groupe C (11.07 x 6.25) et plus bas in groupe A (7.59 ± 3.39). Le taux de proteine total (g/100ml) dans les groupes B (5.85 ± 0.42) etc (0.13 ± 0.52) n'etaient plus significanament different l'un de l'autre (P>0.05) mais notamment different du groupe A (5.06 ± 0.91) (P<0.05). Les enzymes d aspartique d'amino transferase (AST) restaient contant dans les 3 groupes lorsque les valeurs des enzymes d alanine amino transferase (ALT) etaient plus eleve' que la normale..

Abstract

Twelve adult West African Dwarf (WAD) bucks were randomized into three treatment groups (A, B and C) of four animals each. They were fed with the same ration of 0% Milletia thonningii check for this species in other resources for four weeks to allow for acclimatization and basal data were collected for all the bucks. They were later introduced to the test diet group A bucks were given 0% Milletia thonningii as control, group B, 17% M. thonningii while group C received 34% M. thonningii in their feed for 8 weeks. Their clinical parameters were recorded as follows: Rectal temperature (degrees centigrate ± S.D) were 38.84 ± 0.38, 38.48 ± 0.15 and 37.88 ± 0.58 for groups A, B and C respectively. The mean respiratory rates (beats/minute, ± S.D.) were 31.20 ± 3.42, 39.80 ± 4.02, 30.40 ± 3.36 for groups A, B and C respectively. The mean heart rates (beats/minutes ± S.D.) 82.00 ± 5.52, 66.20 ± 3.56 and 70.00 ± 3.67 for groups A, B and C respectively. There was a significant reduction (P<0.05) in the heart rate in groups B and C when compared with the control Group A. The P.C.V. across the three groups were not significantly different from each other (P>0.05) the Red Blood Cell count (X1012/L) was highest in Group B with 12.85 ± 6.24 and lowest in Group C with 10.25 ± 4.29, while the white blood cells (X109/L) was highest in group C (11.07 X 6.25) and lowest with the control group a, (7.59 ± 3.39). The total protein (g/100ml) of groups B (5.84 ± 0.42) and C (6.13 ± 0.52) were not significantly different (P<0.05) from each other but were significantly different from group A (5.06 ± 0.91) (P<0.05). The Aspartate amino transferese (AST) enzyme were within normal values in all the three groups while the values for Alanine amino transferase (ALT) enzyme were higher than normal. Based on these results the inclusion of between 17-34% of Milletia thonningii in feeds of WAD buck as protein supplement is recommended:
