  • Effect of additives on the post-thaw quality of Aksaray Malakli dog

    • Abstract: The goal of this study was to determine effects of trehalose (T) and Trolox (TX) additives on post-thaw viability of canine sperm after freezing. The sperm-rich portions of ejaculates obtained from 15 dogs were divided into three aliquots, which were diluted with Tris-based extender (TBE) (control), TBE + T (25 mM), and TBE + TX (1 mM) and put into straws. The samples were equilibrated at 4 °C for 1.5 hours, then frozen in liquid nitrogen vapour for 15 minutes and plunged into liquid nitrogen. Plasma membrane and acrosome integrity (PMAI) and high mitochondrial membrane potential (HMMP) were evaluated after thawing the straws in a water bath at 37 °C for 30 seconds. Motility, percentage of live spermatozoa, and hypo-osmotic swelling (HOS) were determined using phase-contrast microscopy. Motility (53.00 ± 6.46%), percentage of live spermatozoa (62.97% ± 6.84%), and HOS (40.40 ± 7.11%) of T were significantly higher (P
  • Effect of acute heat stress on production performance and egg quality in
           four strains of chickens

    • Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate differences between four strains of chickens on laying hen productivity and egg quality under acute heat stress (AHS). The study consisted of 44 hens from each of the Fayoumi (FY), Golden Sabahia (GS), White Leghorn (WL) and Lohman Brown (LB) strains that were 30 weeks old. They were allotted to two groups (a thermoneutral temperature regime (26.0 ± 1 °C) and the AHS regime (35 ± 1 °C) and 55 ± 5% relative humidity) for six hours. Egg number and feed intake were recorded. After imposition of the AHS, four hens per strain per treatment were randomly selected and slaughtered to calculate the relative mass of various organs and the number of follicles. Acute heat stress decreased feed intake of all strains significantly. There was a significant interaction between temperature treatment and strain on feed intake, egg weight, surface area of egg, yolk index, yolk weight, and albumen weight and on the relative weights of the various organs, except for the gizzard. Thus, the magnitude of the effects of AHS was strain dependent, with GS seemingly being less affected than the other strains.
  • Serological and molecular identification of Mycobacterium avium subsp.
           paratuberculosis and associated risks in bovine

    • Abstract: Discrepancies in sensitivity and specificities of tests (enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) and tuberculin skin test (TST)), prevalence, and potential risk factors associated with Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) of bovine were hypothesized to affect its control. Keeping PCR as the gold standard test, 101 cattle and 39 buffaloes maintained at Livestock Experiment Station were tested for MAP with ELISA and TST. The incidence of MAP was 13.57% (19/140), 12.85% (18/140), and 8.57% (12/140), based on PCR, ELISA, and TST. Discrepancies in the identification of MAP in buffalo were 7.62% and 2.79% for cattle, based on ELISA compared with TST. The highest discrepancies in MAP prevalence were noted in brown buffalo (22.22%), whereas the lowest were recorded from crossbred cattle (2.63%). Status of milking was a potential risk factor (P
  • Effects of feeding pellets, live earthworms and tilapia on the growth of
           African sharptooth catfish fingerlings

    • Abstract: The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of feeding live earthworms (Eisenia foetida) (Savigny, 1826) (Musyoka et al., 2020) and tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) (Peters, 1852) (Russell et al., 2012) on the growth rate of African sharptooth catfish (Clarias gariepinus) (Burchell, 1822) (Dadebo et al., 2014) fingerlings. Approximately 300 African catfish fingerlings (5 g) were stocked in 16 circular tanks (1000 L) inside an indoor system. The tanks were divided into three groups of treatments (pellets, earthworms and tilapia) with four replicates. The fish were left to acclimatize for a week before the experiment began. The fish were weighed individually each week until the end of the experiment. The results showed that growth differed between catfish fed tilapia fish and those fed pellets and earthworm. There were no differences in average weight gain, specific growth rate, and food conversion ratio between treatment groups. Survival rates differed in catfish fed pellets compared with tilapia and earthworms. Catfish fed tilapia obtained high cumulative feed intake at the end of the experiment. At the end of the experiment, the fingerlings differed in weight between the treatments and their weight was correlated positively with depth. It was concluded that tilapia improved the growth of catfish fingerlings the most and could be a solution for rural farmers who have limited access to fishmeal and feed formulation expertise to maximize productivity.
  • Diversity and taxonomic identification of bacteria in the rumen of zebu
           cattle fed various diets

    • Abstract: In this study bacterial populations were identified in the rumen of zebu cattle fed various diets and classified taxonomically with metagenomic sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene. Twenty-four (24) heifers were used in a completely randomized experimental design to test the effect of the diets. Treatment 1 consisted of range grass hay. Treatment 2 was composed of the hay diet augmented with sun-dried cassava leaves. Treatment 3 comprised hay plus sun-dried azolla. Treatments 4 to 6 were similar to treatments 1 to 3. but with a basal diet of Brachiaria Mulato II hay. Rumen liquor samples were collected from the heifers, from which a total of 192 DNA samples were amplified and the resulting 16S rRNA sequences were compared with those in the National Centre for Biotechnology Information BLAST database using MetagenAssist. Bioinformatics analyses indicated that 17 operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were present at phylum level, of which 43.3% were Firmicutes, 27.2% Bacteroidetes, 22.8% Proteobacteria and 1.7% Euryarchaeota. The remaining OTUs were Cyanobacteria (1.4%) and Chloroflexi (1%) with Actinobacteria, Verrucomicrobia, Spirochaetes, Tenericutes, Planctomycetes, Elusimicrobia, Lentisphaerae, Armatimonadetes, Fibrobacteres, Synergistetes and Arthropoda all below 1% of the organisms present. Time and diet both affected (P
  • Protected lysine in diets for 25-100 kg pigs

    • Abstract: The digestible lysine requirements for fattening pigs have not been established clearly. The objective of this trial was to determine a level of protected lysine in pig diets that was adequate for growth performance, carcass characteristics, and plasma urea nitrogen concentration. Fifty crossbred pigs (29.55 ± 1.80 kg initial bodyweight) were used in a completely randomized design with a 3 χ 2 factorial arrangement of treatments. Treatments were 0.90%, 1.00% and 1.10% lysine in the growing phase, followed by diets with 0.75%, 0.85% and 0.95% lysine in finishing stage I, and 0.83%, 0.93% and 1.03% lysine in finishing stage II. The lysine was provided in its conventional form and as protected lysine. For growing pigs, the highest average daily feed intake (ADFI) and final bodyweight were obtained with 1.1% and 1.0% lysine, respectively. The average daily gain, ADFI, final bodyweight, fat free lean gain and longissimus muscle area (LMA) were reduced with protected lysine. In finishing I stage, pigs fed 0.95% lysine had greater final bodyweight, LMA, and lean meat percentage than pigs fed with 1% unprotected lysine. For finishing II pigs, ADFI and final bodyweight were the greatest when 1.03% lysine was provided, regardless the type of lysine that was fed. The plasma urea nitrogen increased with the 1.03% lysine diet and was reduced with protected lysine. Results indicate that the digestible lysine requirement for the fattening pig diets might be 0.10% higher than in current recommendations. The use of protected lysine affected growth negatively during the growing stage.
  • Slaughter, carcass and egg traits of domestic geese raised in the
           Aegean region of Turkey

    • Abstract: This study was conducted to determine the slaughter, carcass, and egg quality characteristics of domestic geese reared in Uşak, Afyon, and Kütahya provinces of the Aegean region. Ninety-six eggs were obtained from 38- to 44-week-old geese from four locations in each province. Slaughter and carcass characteristics were recorded for 48 female and male geese between 28 and 32 weeks old. Heavier eggs were produced in Afyon and Kütahya than in Uşak. Shape index, eggshell ratio and thickness, and yolk colour were significantly different between provinces. Birds from Kütahya were lighter at slaughter than those from Uşak and Afyon. This difference was also manifest in the weights of hot and cold carcass, blood, neck, wing, leg, breast, and back. The weights of blood, feathers, liver, gizzard, heart and neck varied significantly relative to cold carcass weight between provinces. Male geese were significantly larger than females in all respects except for liver weight. Because females weighed less, the various ratios to cold carcass weight were significantly greater than for males. Interestingly, the relative weight of the breast was significantly greater for males than for females. These differences among provinces might be attributable to environmental factors and genetic differences among the geese themselves.
  • An exogenous fibrolytic enzyme mixture enhances in vitro ruminai
           degradability of red grape pomace by-product

    • Abstract: Usefulness of red grape pomace (GP) by-product in ruminant rations is restricted by its high fibre content. Pre-treatment with exogenous carbohydrases may partly resolve this problem. Therefore, the effects of various levels of an exogenous fibrolytic enzyme mixture (Viscozyme® L) on chemical nutrient content and in vitro ruminal fermentation of GP were studied. This product, with an enzyme activity of >100 fungal beta-glucanase per gram (FBG/g) and a density of 1.2 g/mL, was applied to GP at 0 (ENZ0), 20 (ENZ20), 30 (ENZ30), 35 (ENZ35), and 45 g/kg DM (ENZ45). Neutral detergent fibre (NDF), acid detergent fibre (ADF) and insoluble condensed tannins (ICT) declined linearly as enzyme levels increased. Significant negative linear trends were observed for the rate of gas production at 36 and 48 hours, whereas quadratic trends were observed at 12- and 24-hours incubation in response to enzyme levels. Cumulative gas production at 12 hours and 24 hours and in vitro organic matter degradability at 96 hours post incubation increased linearly as treatment levels increased. Effective gas production declined linearly (P =0.041; R² =0.085), whereas the slowly degradable fraction (P =0.042, R² =0.084), the fractional degradation rate (P =0.003, R² =0.175) and potential gas production (P =0.043, R² =0.083) showed quadratic trends as enzyme levels increased. Pre-treatment with Viscozyme reduced the fibre levels of GP and increased in vitro ruminal organic matter degradability. The optimum level for inclusion of Viscozyme was 5 g/kg.
  • Influence of graded level of salt and maturation times on quality traits
           of beef and pork sun-dried meat: A test pilot

    • Abstract: The goal of this study was to assess the qualitative and sensorial characteristics of beef and pork sun-dried meat (SDM) with different salt (NaCl) levels (6%, 8% and 10%) and curing times (30 and 40 h). Samples from the beef strip loin (Gluteus medius) and pork loin (Longissimus thoracic) were cut to a thickness of 5 cm. Three levels of salt were applied, and the meat was allowed to cure for either 30 or 40 hours with three replications per treatment. The pH, shear force (SF), luminosity (L*), tonality (TON), saturation, loss of water by cooking (LWC), moisture, crude protein (CP), sensory attributes, and consumers' intention to buy were analysed. Beef and pork produced differences in L*, saturation, TON, and CP, appearance, and colour of the sun-dried product. The SDM cured for 30 hours was higher in moisture, LWC and L* (P =0.023), and had greater CP content than that cured for 40 hours. The appearance and salinity of the product were affected by the level of salt that was used in making it. In conclusion, various NaCl levels did not influence the physical-chemical and qualitative characteristics of the SDM, but these characteristics were influenced by the curing and meat type. In addition, the meat type and the salt level affected some aspects of the sensory evaluation.
  • Dry sugarcane yeast and urea could replace soybean meal in the diet of
           buffalo heifers

    • Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine the effects of replacing soybean meal (SBM) with increasing levels (0%, 33%, 67%, and 100%) of sugarcane yeast and urea on the intake, performance, and feeding behaviour of buffalo heifers. Twenty Murrah female buffalos with an initial average weight of 157 ± 1.9 kg at 7 months old were distributed in a completely randomized design. The experimental period was 84 days, and was preceded with 30 days of adaptation. Data were subjected to analysis of variance and regression, using the GLM and REG procedures of SAS software at 5% probability level. The replacement of SBM with sugarcane yeast did not have a significant effect on the intake of dry matter (DM), organic matter and crude protein (CP). Non-fibrous carbohydrate intake increased linearly, whereas the intake of neutral detergent fibre (NDF), and ether extract (EE) decreased linearly. There was no treatment effect on average daily gain or feed conversion (FCR). Rumination efficiency on nondetergent fibre (NDF) decreased linearly. The times spent ruminating, remaining idle, and feeding were not influenced by the treatments, and neither were the parameters of feeding efficiency as a function of DM and NDF intakes and rumination efficiency as a function of DM intake. Dry sugarcane yeast and urea could replace SBM fully in the diet of buffalo heifers with a roughage to concentrate ratio of 50 : 50, because animal performance would not be affected.
  • Rumen microbial diversity of Bonsmara cattle using amplicon sequencing
           during a 120-day growth trial

    • Abstract: Improved understanding of the microbial populations during intensive feeding of feedlot cattle holds potential for optimizing production efficiency. Ionophores are used to increase the production and efficiency of ruminants and are commonly used in South African feedlots. Bonsmara bull calves (n=24) were subject to a four-phase feedlot diet in a growth trial commencing with backgrounding, followed by starter, grower and finisher diets. Animals were randomly divided into two groups: control and a group provided the in-feed ionophore monensin. Four animals from each group were randomly selected for rumen content collection using an oesophageal tube during the phases in the trial. Samples were analysed using 16S rRNA and internal transcribed spacers amplicon sequencing. Totals of 42 008 and 35 442 amplicon sequence variants were identified from 16S rRNA and internal transcribed spacers amplicon sequencing. The rumen microbiome composition and alpha diversity differed significantly between the phases, whereas no significant difference was observed between the control and monensin groups. Backgrounding had the highest bacterial richness, whereas the grower phase had the highest fungal richness. Bacteroidetes, Firmicutes and Proteobacteria were the most abundant phyla, with Bacteroidetes being most abundant in the backgrounding and starter phases, whereas Proteobacteria was the most abundant in the grower and finisher phases. Ascomycota, Basidiomycota and Neocallistigomycota were the most abundant fungal phyla. Improved knowledge of the shift in microbiome population during the growth period could assist in adapting feeding strategies to improve the efficiency of beef production.
