During my PhD, I took courses on climate change and Agriculture, information Systems and Agricultural Knowledge Management, Short French Language course, Animal behaviour and welfare dynamics in a changing climate and International trade and Commercial policy. I did Intership at Obasanjo Farm Limited Igbo-Ora Oyo State I attended Seminars and workshop on Agricultural Information Systems Development and International Short Course on Advanced Techniques in Poultry Nutrition Research, organized by the centre.
Skills Aquired: feed mill operations, hatchery operations, general poultry production system, animal welfare and poultry management practices such as brooding,artificial insemination etc, adaptation of animal to change in climate, Computing skill, Teaching skill, Time management, writing skill
My PhD in CEADESE, enable me to achieve something significant, To discover and learn something new in agriculture, improve my abilities to understand and solve problems in monogastric nutrition, increase my confidence, make me a better communicator and self reliance through the skills acquired in livestock science, the programme exposed me to practical knowledge in animals production and push me to a new height, makes me to learn and use skill acquire to their full capacity, in future it will enable me to enter academia ,To make my opinion in animal production valid, my contribution will benefit the society , It will gives me the chance to earn more.
Brief synopsis of Research
High feed cost is the predominant factor militating against poultry production. There is need to evaluate non convectional ingredients for their potentials in poultry feed. Three studies were conducted to evaluate the utilization of cassoya based diets (mixture of cassava root meal and full-fat soybean in ratio 60:40) supplemented with enzyme for broiler chickens. In Experiment 1, relationship between chemical composition of cassava products and prediction model were developed. Experiment 2 (E2) and 3 (E3) involved the use of 600 day-old ROSS 308 broiler chickens for each study. The birds were allotted to 6 dietary treatments (T) for 42 days with 100 birds per treatment and 5 replicates, in a 2×3 factorial arrangement, T1 – T3 in both experiments contained cassoya at 0, 50 and 100% without enzyme in both experiments while T4 – T6 had protease enzyme in E2 and multi-enzyme 10g/tonne in E3. Data were subjected to Analysis of Variance in a Completely Randomized Design. The study concluded that 50% cassoya diets supplemented with enzymes enhanced growth performance, carcass characteristics, gut morphology and ileal digesta viscosity with maximum profit
