Introduction linear programming is a computational method of selecting, allocating and evaluating limited resources with linear, algebraic constraints to obtain an optimal solution for a linear, algebraic objective function. Nigeria industries some of this feed stuffs are currently used in rations for both terrestrial animals and and commercial feeds there are few commercial so the feedstuffs used in fish feeds are derived from crop residues, mill by-products, food processing wastes or agro. History of fish farming in nigeria fish farming is recognized as one of the most important aspects of nigeria’s agricultural sector in the early 1980s.
The nutrient and amino acid composition of a range of nigerian feedstuffs were studied by chemical analysis and column chromatography for amino acids nearly all feedstuffs studied showed low crude fibre value except the palm kernel meal and the african locust bean seeds which gave high values, range 81 to 123% and 876 to 1264%, respectively. However, the major factor militating against intensive animal production in nigeria is the high cost of feed and feed ingredients like maize, soybean cake and groundnut cake (obioha, 1992) the ever increasing cost of poultry feeds with the attendant increase in the cost of chickens and eggs shows that there is need to explore the use of alternative feed ingredients that are cheaper and locally. In the decade before year 2000, the livestock sector in nigeria saw an unprecedented increase in feed cost to the extent of constituting over 90% of poultry and pig farm recurrent expenditure this no doubt resulted in the closure of many poultry and pig farms.
Formulation of catfish feed fish is highly nutritive and rich cause of animal proteins for the improvement of fisheries and also to achieve maximum yields from methods of fresh water, it is essential to provide artificial feed, in which fish grows rapidly and reaches maximum weight in shortest feasible time among commonly used nourish ingredients. Some feedstuffs, particularly roughages, may appear to contribute enough amino acid to help satisfy the requirement ‘the bottom line is the costs have gone through the roof for feedstuffs, fertiliser and veterinary care,’ said councillor cronin. The demand for feedstuffs in nigeria is derived predominantly from the livestock and poultry feed industries, and is met either by domestic production and/or imports domestic supplies to the feed industry are dependent upon the overall agricultural production, the degree of industrialization and the demand for refined food products. Finfish feed technology in nigeria ogugua, n m and eyo, j e department of zoology university of nigeria, nsukka, enugu state, nigeria abstract finfish feed technology and the nigerian economy the cost of feed claims over half of feedstuffs are classified into two groups energy feedstuffs and protein supplements. Preparing your own fish feeds 3 diet, while ethoxyquin is added at 150 mg/kg of the diet sodium and potassium salts of propionic, benzoic or sorbic.
Applied nutrition involves determining nutrient requirements and then working with available feedstuffs, including pasture, hay, or supplemental feeds, to provide the required nutrients in proper amounts. Feed producers can detect low quality raw materials and reduce feed formulation costs with a feed ingredient analysis solution from foss feed ingredients we can help feed producers control raw material variability and achieve savings of up to 100000 usd per year. Feed makes up 55-65 per cent of total pig production costs, and is the largest cost associated with pig production therefore, selecting the right combination of feed ingredients to calculate a diet that provides optimum animal production for the least cost is essential to maximise profitability.

Studies on the physical characteristics of some feed ingredients in nigeria 2: energy source and novel feedstuffs author(s) : (mz, sgh, and cf) had reduced sg values as the ps was modified from ≥100 mm to 100 mm ps the physical characteristics of feed ingredients studied cannot be concluded to be optimal since the standard values for. A wide rage of alternative feedstuffs are available for feeding in the three poultry production systems and the greatest potential for efficiently utilizing of these feeds stuffs will be in tradition poultry systems (scavenging and backyard) and the semi commercial system.
In vitro gas production techniques stimulate the rumen fermentation process and they have been used to evaluate the potential of feedstuffs to supply nutrients to ruminants thus, five agricultural wastes: cassava peels (cps), maize cobs (mcb), orange pulps (opl), guinea corn threshed tops (gth) and yam peels (yps) were evaluated using an in vitro gas production technique. We will unravel poultry feed production business in this article the greatest cost component of poultry production business is the feed so, it makes business sense to look into the possibility of making your own feed, if you are a farmer or specializing in making healthy, good quality poultry feed, if you are interested in joining the poultry management value chain. Feed formulations for laying hens filev k, sokarovski j, kon-popovska m in sauveur b (ed) feedstuffs is such fhaf if ensures good health of the birds and high quality eggs for this purpose estimates are made beforehand for chemical composition, energy value and cost of these findings are important for feed formulation because.

Use of an in vitro gas production technique to evaluate some nigerian feedstuffs 12a akinfemi, adu o adesanya and ve aya3 1department of animal science, faculty of agriculture, valuable alternative animal feed sources in ruminant feeding.
Skretting now including insect meal in commercial fish feed oct 24, 2018 insect meal expected to be an important future raw material in the future, but manufacturers need to scale up production. Nigeria is depended on a better awareness and utilization of unconventional feed products, which attract little or no monetary value (tewe, 1997) according to adeniyi and balogun (2002), effort to reduce the high cost of feeds and. Used as fishmeal supplement in aquaculture practices in nigeria introduction essential or indispensable amino acids (eaas) since fishmeal is expensive as a feed ingredient, the use of non-conventional feedstuffs has these include all types of feedstuffs from animal (silkworm, maggot, termite, grub, earthworm, snail,. Enzymes supplementation of non-conventional feedstuffs (a panacea to sustainable fish and livestock production in nigeria) agbabiaka la, nwaka su, ekeocha ca and ojukannaiye sa made it imperative to source for alternative feed materials for fishes and livestock the current awareness in aquaculture and livestock production has.
