Abstract

During the dry season, there is always scarcity of plants and grasses for ruminants to consume. However, the few available plants during this season have higher anti-nutritional factors . The high level of anti-nutritional above the recommended values could have an adverse effect on the health status and metabolic process of the animal feeding on such plants. he experiment was conducted to the effect of drying methods on the antinutritional levels of some browse plants leaves and leaves + twigs from (Albizia lebbeck, Albizia saman, Daniella oliveri, Enterolobium cyclocarpum, Gliricidia sepium, Leucaena leucocephala, Milletia griffoniana and Pterocarpus santalinoides). The browse plants were collected and identified, while anti-nutritional profiles were analyzed using  the Boham and Russel procedures. Flavonoids and phytates were recorded The flavonoid content of the browse plants ranged from 2.67% to 7.33% while the phytate content ranged from 0.30 to 0.69 (mg/kg) respectively. Enterolobium cyclocarpum had the highest for phytate contentThe experiment was conducted to the effect of drying methods on the antinutritional levels of some browse plants leaves and leaves + twigs from (Albizia lebbeck, Albizia saman, Daniella oliveri, Enterolobium cyclocarpum, Gliricidia sepium,Leucaena leucocephala, Milletia griffoniana and Pterocarpus santalinoides). The browse plants were collected and identified, while anti-nutritional profiles were analyzed using. There were significant (P>0.05) differences in the drying methods and anti-nutritional factors in the plant parts.Albizia lebbeck was highest (P<0.05) for flavonoid while .It is concluded that drying methods had effect on the forages considered. However, the leaves and twigs of these browse plants contained flavonoid and phytate contents which were within the recommended limits and thus safe for ruminant consumption

 

 

 

Pendant la saison sèche, il y a toujours une pénurie de plantes et d'herbes pour consommer des ruminants. Cependant, les quelques plantes disponibles au cours de cette saison ont des facteurs anti-nutritionnelles plus élevés. Le niveau élevé d'anti-nutritionnelle au-dessus des valeurs recommandées pourrait avoir un effet défavorable sur l'état de santé et le processus métabolique de l'alimentation des animaux sur de telles plantes. L'expérience a été menée pour déterminer l'effet des méthodes de séchage sur les niveaux anti-nutritionnelles de certaines plantes de navigation dans les feuilles et des feuilles + brindilles de (Albizia lebbeck, Albizia saman, Daniella oliveri, Enterolobium cyclocarpum, GliricidiaSepium, Leucaena leucocephala, Milletia griffoniana et Pterocarpus santalinois). Les plantes de navigation ont été collectées et identifiées, tandis que des profils anti-nutritionnelles ont été analysés à l'aide de procédures Boham et Russel. Les flavonoïdes et les phytates ont été enregistrés. Il y avait des différences significatives (p> 0,05) dans les méthodes de séchage et les facteurs anti-nutritionnelles dans les parties de la plante. La teneur en flavonoïde des usines de navigation varie de 2,67% à 7,33% tandis que la teneur en phyté allait respectivement de 0,30 à 0,69 (mg / kg). AlbiziaLebbeck était la plus élevée (p <0,05) pourflavonoïde tandis que le cyclocarpum d'Enterolobium avait le plus élevé pour la teneur enphyté. Il est conclu que les méthodes de séchage avaient une incidence sur les fourrages considérés. Cependant, les feuilles et les brindilles de ces plantes de navigation contenaient du contenu flavonoïde et de phyté dans les limites recommandées et donc sans danger pour la consommation de ruminants.
