The effects of the supplementation of groundnut haulms (GH) with graded levels of cassava foliage (CFL) at 0, 10, 20 and 30% on the performance of the West African dwarf (WAD) breed of sheep with average body weight of 13.20 ± 0.34kg were evaluated in a complete randomized design in a 90 day experiment.
Data were obtained on feed intake, weight gain, digestibility and haematological parameters.
Results showed that CFL supplementation of GH had a positive effect (P 0.05) on dry ma...
