He currently heads and conducts research in Monogastric
Livestock Production Unit at the Institute of Agricultural Research and Training, Ibadan and teaches same at the Department of Animal Sciences, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.
Herbs and botanicals as feed additives in monogastric
Guests were given the chance to visit a series of workstations covering a range of topics such as monogastric
nutrition, new technologies in feed production, and information on the latest trials and studies being conducted by Harbro.
Studies showed OA might regulate monogastric
intestinal microbial flora and it is expected that OA might help to improve the utilization of dietary fiber in pigs.
2011).This method is practiced in monogastric
animals since a longtime, however the dietary nutrients digestibility as well as ingredients selection are still a part of discussion, because of increase in the flow and EAAL.
He added that they manufactured monogastric
feeds for both poultry and pigs.
Phytic acid-protein and phytic acid-mineral complexes are insoluble and cannot be digested by monogastric
animals, due to a lack of phytic acid hydrolysis enzyme in the gastrointestinal tract, thereby decreasing the nutrient value of feed ingredients consumed.
The digestion process in ruminants is significantly different from monogastric
Use of polyphenol-rich grape byproducts in monogastric
The rice byproducts, especially bran, present higher fiber contents, thereby affecting the digestibility in monogastric
animals, which includes the reduction of feedstuff GE digestibility (BRITO et al., 2008).
Dr Agboola's main areas of research are on evaluation of feedstuffs, amino acid availability and their inter-relationships with other nutrients, efficiency of amino acid utilisation in monogastrics
. Her research programme is aimed at improving the efficiency of meat production in monogastric
animals, value additions to non-conventional feed ingredients, least cost feed formulation and minimising environmental pollution.
