Abstract:
The present study entitled “Performance of Tenyivo pig on diet supplemented with Nutgall (Rhus semialata) Fruit” was carried out to examine the effect of Nutgall Fruit on body weight, gain in weight, feed intake, feed conversion efficiency, morbidity, mortality and economics of production of Tenyivo pigs. The experimental study was carried out with twenty weaned Tenyivo piglets of two-month-old for a period of two months. The experimental animals were randomly selected and divided into four treatment groups namely T1, T2, T3 and T4 with five piglets in each group irrespective of sex. The treatment groups T2, T3 and T4 were fed with concentrate feed supplemented with Nutgall Fruit at the rate of 1%, 2% and 3% per kg feed; respectively on alternate days whereas the T1 group was fed with concentrate feed only. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed that the final body weight and feed intake were significantly (p˂0.05) higher in the T3 group at 9.15 kg and 1.35 kg, respectively. Moreover, T3 exhibited better weight gains at 0.48 kg/pig/week. Feed conversion efficiency was unaffected by dietary supplementation of Nutgall (Rhus semialata) fruit. There were 40% and 20% morbidity and mortality during the experimental period in the treatment T4 group. Therefore, Nutgall (Rhus semialata) Fruit at a 2% level in the diet of Tenyivo pigs can be recommended for farmers.
